Review:



"Hansot traces in six utopian commonwealths not so much the issue of their merit or realization but the nature of the utopian thought experiment as a complex mode of inquiry. She is interested in the questions raised about human values, the process of change, and the basis for value judgments. The scholarship and writing are cool and clear. Her choice of examples are: Plato's 'Republic,' More's 'Utopia,' and Andreae's 'Christianopolis' as types of classical thought; and Bellamy's 'Looking Backward,' Wells's 'A Modern Utopia,' and Howells' 'A Traveller from Altruria' and 'Through the Eye of the Needle' as forms of modern thought."
- Virginia Quarterly Review
"Perfection and Progress is a good book.... This work, moreover, is useful for the classroom instructor. Hansot's analysis of the two utopian traditions can be readily incorporated into a variety of lectures, particularly those for Western Civilization courses."
- The History Teacher
