“The detailed analyses of individual theorists and practitioners are most profitable. Well written and convincing. . .".
“A survey of remarkable breadth and depth.”
“. . . A welcome additional perspective to studies of fundamental change . . . Much of the value and enjoyment of Jacobins and Utopians lies in the author’s explorations of dilemmas of fundamental moral reform and his uncovering of the ways in which many major theorists discovered and grappled with (or found themselves unable effectively to grapple with) those dilemmas.”
