Utopian thought in the Western World by Frank Edward Manuel( Book )

48 editions published between 1979 and 2009 in English and held by 1,774 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Synopsis: This masterly study has a grand sweep. It ranges over centuries, with a long look backward over several millennia. Yet the history it unfolds is primarily the story of individuals: thinkers and dreamers who envisaged an ideal social order and described it persuasively, leaving a mark on their own and later times. The roster of utopians includes men of all stripes in different countries and eras--figures as disparate as More and Fourier, the Marquis de Sade and Edward Bellamy, Rousseau and Marx. Fascinating character studies of the major figures are among the delights of the book. Utopian writings run the gamut from fictional narratives to theoretical treatises, from political manifestos to constitutions for a new society. The Manuels have structured five centuries of utopian invention by identifying successive constellations, groups of thinkers joined by common social and moral concerns. Within this framework they analyze individual writings, in the context of the author's life and of the socio-economic, religious, and political exigencies of his time. Concentrating on innovative works, they highlight disjuncture's as well as continuities in utopian thought from the Renaissance through the twentieth century. Witty and erudite, challenging in its interpretations and provocative in the questions it poses, the Manuels' anatomy of utopia is an adventure in ideas

The broken staff : Judaism through Christian eyes by Frank Edward Manuel( Book )

15 editions published between 1992 and 1998 in 3 languages and held by 605 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Review text: This work by a distinguished intellectual historian of early modernity charts the developing image of Judaism held in various Christian circles from the 13th century to the present...[It] is a treasure of information and is full of deeply perceptive insights.[An] erudite and pioneering work on the Christian relationship to Judaism.Manuel shows that the story of Europe's discovery of Judaism was as rich, as complex, and sometimes as paradoxical as the better-known story of the discovery of ancient Greece and Rome...Manuel tells his complicated story with clarity and panache...The Christian enterprise of understanding Judaism has been, and probably will remain, a torment as well as a stimulus to both parties. It is a situation that is not likely to change--except, perhaps, in Manuel's utopian future. But his learned and honest book exposes the twisted, bitter roots of error. A master historian has practiced his necessary craft.Mr. Manuel's aim is to set Jewish and Hebrew scholarship against the background of Christian obsessions, in a sense to see it as an aspect of Christian ideas, a subject that the author of books on Isaac Newton and modern utopias, who has long taught history at Brandeis and New York University, is well qualified to present in grand perspective...[A] tightly packed and learned book
