Utopian literature has given voice to the hopes and fears of the
human race from its earliest days to the present. The only
single-volume anthology of its kind, The Utopia Reader encompasses
the entire spectrum and history of utopian writing-from the Old
Testament and Plato's "Republic," to Sir Thomas More's "Utopia" and
George Orwell's twentieth century dystopia, "Nineteen Eighty-Four,"
through to the present day.
The editors of this definitive collection demonstrate the
various ways in which utopias have been used throughout history as
veiled criticism of existing conditions and how peoples excluded
from the dominant discourse-such as women and minorities-have used
the form to imagine empowering alternatives to present
An engaging tour through the dissident, polemic, and satirical
tradition of utopian writing, The Utopia Reader ultimately provides
a telling portrait of civilization's persistent need to imagine and
construct ideal societies.
