The utopia reader by Gregory Claeys( )

21 editions published between 1999 and 2018 in English and held by 1,278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 circumstances. 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
Extremism in America : a reader by Lyman Tower Sargent( Book )

9 editions published in 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 823 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Extremism takes many forms: racial, political, religious, economic.This collection of extremist idealogies and writings highlights the one thread that unites the various brands of extremism, namely, that there is always an enemy. The enemy can take the form of the government, communism, the patriarchy, African Americans, gays and lesbians, men, welfare recipients, Jews, or corporation, but the presence of a clear-cut idealogical foe is an intrinsic component of extremism. Providing a panoramic perspective on American exremism from the earliest days of the republic, this book is diviced into thematic chapters on communism and anticommunism, race, social conceerns, economic matters, intentional communities, and organizations advocating radical decentralization. Familiar extremist forces here meet lesserr-known ones to paint a vivid portrait of life and thought on the political fringe. Included are writings from Jacob Coxey, the Socialist Party, the Populist Party, Father Charles E. Coughlin, Gerald L.K. Smith, the Constistutional Revival, Robert McCurry, the Communist Party of America, the Socialist Labor Party, the Marxist-Leninist Party, the Minutemen, the John Birch Society, the Congress of Conservatives, and George Lincoln Rockwell.--Adapted from publisher description

Utopia : the search for the ideal society in the western world by Roland Schaer( Book )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Utopia is the result of a collaborative effort between two of the world's great libraries, the Bibliothèque nationale de France and The New York Public Library. It represents the first time that two such institutions have merged their staffs in order to produce a unified exhibition. Materials and topics included in Utopia reflect the strengths ofboth libraries' collections, while representing the variety of utopian proposals and experiments in the Western world. To have included the history of Eastern utopian thought would have doubled the size of the exhibition, so that exploration has been left to others."

The Oxford handbook of political ideologies( Book )

21 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first comprehensive volume to offer a state of the art investigation both of the nature of political ideologies and of their main manifestations. The diversity of ideology studies is represented by a mixture of the range of theories that illuminate the field, combined with an appreciation of the changing complexity of concrete ideologies and the emergence of new ones. Ideologies, however, are always with us. The Handbook is divided into three sections: The first reflects some of the latest thinking about the development of ideology on an historical dimension, from the standpoints of conceptual history, Marx studies, social science theory and history, and leading schools of continental philosophy. The second includes some of the most recent interpretations and theories of ideology, all of which are sympathetic in their own ways to its exploration and close investigation, even when judiciously critical of its social impact. This section contains many of the more salient contemporary accounts of ideology. The third focuses on the leading ideological families and traditions, as well as on some of their cultural and geographical manifestations, incorporating both historical and contemporary perspectives. Each chapter is written by an expert in their field, bringing the latest approaches and understandings to their task. The Handbook will position the study of ideologies in the mainstream of political theory and political analysis and will attest to its indispensability both to courses on political theory and to scholars who wish to take their understanding of ideologies in new directions
Political thought in the United States : a documentary history( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An innovative departure from traditional approaches to political thought, Lyman Tower Sargent's groundbreaking anthology includes minority ideologies and positions where they occurred historically. By interweaving minority voices with majority documents rather than grouping them separately, Political Thought in the United States presents us with a uniquely organic portrait of American political life. Beginning with the time of the explorers and early settlers, the volume presents the political beliefs and ideologies of religious minorities, women, North American Indians, and African Americans as fundamental components of American thought. Emphasizing that such minority perspectives never melted together into the mainstream, Sargent subscribes to a "tossed salad" approach which emphasizes the distinctness of minority opinions. Sargent's introductory comments, which preface the selections, serve as connecting narratives and help the reader follow ideological disputes as they occurred, revealing a historical continuum and enriching our understanding of contemporary politics
Living in utopia : New Zealand's intentional communities by Lucy Sargisson( Book )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2017 in English and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book Sargisson and Sargent, both established writers on utopian theory, turn their attention to real-life utopian communities. The book is based on their fieldwork and extensive archival research in New Zealand, a country with a special place in the history of utopianism. A land of opportunity for settlers with dreams of a better life, New Zealand has, per capita, more intentional communities - groups of people who have chosen to live and sometimes work together for a common purpose - than any country in the world. Sargisson and Sargent draw on the experiences of more than fifty such communities, to offer the first academic survey of this form of living utopian experiment." "In telling the story of the New Zealand experience, Living in Utopia provides both transferable lessons in community, cooperation and social change and a unique insight into the utopianism at the heart of politics, society, and everyday life."--Jacket
