This is a fully revised edition of what is already one of the most successful volumes in the entire series of Cambridge Texts in the History of Political Thought. This revision incorporates the many refinements to the translation of Utopia undertaken for the dual-language scholarly edition published by Cambridge in 1995, and Professor Logan has also updated the editorial commentary and introduction to take account of scholarship published since the first Cambridge Texts edition of Utopia appeared in 1989. This Logan-Adams edition is firmly established as the most accurate, accessible and student-friendly rendition of Utopia currently available. All the usual series features are included, with a concise introduction, chronology of More's life, and notes for further reading. This revised rendition should introduce further generations of students to Utopia, one of the most influential books in the western philosophical and literary tradition, and one of the supreme achievements of Renaissance humanism.

Editorial Reviews

Daniel Kinney
What Clarence Miller attempts :and accomplishes :here is a nuanced and textured rendition in English that says neither less nor more than the Latin itself.
Louis Martz
Clarence Miller has made a lively and accurate translation which preserves the subtlety and wit of More’s own Latin. Fluent and highly readable, this new version should be welcomed by all admirers of the Utopia.
Based on the first English translation of the influential 1516 book produced forty years after original Latin publication. Robynson's version is here corrected and revised, with modern spelling and extensive annotation. The introduction describes More's thought and places him and his work within the political, economic, and religious contexts of 16th-century England. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
From the Publisher
"This revision of the 1989 edition will continue to provide graduate students and advanced undergraduates with a very good text for many years to come."
