Title, Utopianism Concepts in Social Thought · Concepts in the social sciences. Author, Krishan Kumar. Edition, illustrated. Publisher, Open University Press. A fine little monograph. Rather than surveying the concept (and its literature) at its broadest, Kumar (social thought, U. of Kent at Canterbury) wisely treats utopia. Utopia has become a vague term, synonymous almost with the Good Society or the Good Time. It is applied to the dreams and visions of all peoples and all.
