Abstract:

"The book investigates the ecotopias of Thomas More, Henry Thoreau, Peter Kropotkin, William Morris, Ebenezer Howard, Bernard Skinner, Aldous Huxley, Ernest Callenbach and Murray Bookehin. The central conclusion is that there is a need for 'counter-images' of an alternative society, one that protects and respects nature. The ecological utopias represent a most pertinent form of social critique; they can truly function as a rich source of ideals for a different arrangement of contemporary society. In this post modern era as much as in any other, we cannot dispense with the inspiration and innovative power of the utopian ecological imagination."--Jacket.
