"David W. Noble explains that modern people assume there will be perpetual economic growth because such a utopian conviction is the necessary foundation for bourgeois culture. Noble exposes the cost of the segregation of the physical sciences from the humanities and social sciences, while demonstrating the required movement of the humanities toward the ecological vision of a single, interconnected world."--From Publisher Website

"Utopian writing has created many depictions of imaginary societies. In these, more perfect principles are applied in order to arrive at an ideal state. The foregoing study contrasts the illustrations of economic systems in selected Utopian works including More's Utopia (1516), Bellamy's Looking Backwards (1888), Morris' News from Nowhere (1890), Huxley's Brave New World (1932) and Callenbach's Ecotopia (1975). Taking into account the historical and personal background of the writers, the roles, characteristics and feasibility of their Utopian economies are studied." --From Amazon
