内容説明

This study focuses on the latest phase of the literary tradition of utopia, from the 19th century to the present, in Europe and America. It aims to show how modern versions of utopia and anti-utopia engage in debate about the future of modern society, and especially the role of socialism and science within it. The book asks whether socialism will lead to freedom and fulfillment or to tyranny and conformity, and whether will science free us or enslave us.
