Pub. Date: 07/07/1994
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Showing how the image of the ideal society was used as a form of social criticism, particularly as a means of focusing on ideas of progress and commercial development, this collection of eighteenth-century British utopias also examines relationships to key issues and developments in the political thought of the period.
