About this item

"There is a lot of political upheaval around world today. From the Arab Spring to the Occupy Movement and the U.S. presidential race, it seems that everywhere people are looking for new ways of solving problems. This book undertakes a critical examination of political problems through three utopian and three dystopian classic texts, chosen for the interplay of the themes, problems, and solutions they explore. Selected stories from Morris, Orwell, More, Bellamy, Neville, and Zamyatin are used as a form ofpolitical philosophy to generate questions about fundamental economic, political, and social problems, human nature, and the notion of the good life. These text, spanning across 500 years, will not only familiarize readers with the politics and philosophy they present, but will also stimulate new ways of critical thinking and scholarly exploration. This unique work will be an exceptional resource for all students in political theory, political philosophy, utopian politics and literature"--
