First published in 1516, during a period of astonishing political and technological change, Sir Thomas More's Utopia depects an imaginary society free of private property, sexual discrimination, and religious intolerance. Its radical humanism has had an incalculable effect on modern history, and the challenge of its vision is as insistent today as it was in the Renaissance.

This book, from its first appearance in 1516, has been one of the germinal works in Western thought and remains even today, in its essential modernity, stimulating and controversial. This edition is based on the text prepared as Volume 4 in The Yale Edition of The Complete Works of St.Thomas More and includes an Introduction by Father Surtz which summarizes the import of Utopia for the general reader. Notes are provided as explanatory comment on the text. The accuracy of the translation ensures that the volume can be used by the historian, literary scholar, the social and politcal scientist, and the student of utopoian thought.

Sir Thomas More's Utopia has spurred debate, reflection, and critical thinking since its original publication in the sixteenth century. More's fictional island of Utopia provides an exploration of issues that shook him and his contemporaries and that continue to be problematic in the modern day. The details of More's utopian society, such as the permissibility of euthanasia and comments on chastity in the priesthood, combine with proposals of coexisting varied religions to put forth a work that incorporates the totality of More's religious, sociological, and philosophical talents.

This version of Utopia is the translation by Bishop Gilbert Burnet.

Unabridged audio CD; approximately 4 hours; 4 CDs; narrated by Simon Prebble.

Peter Ackroyd's book is more a magnificent reconstruction of the life and imagination of one of the most remarkable figures of history--and arguably the most brilliant lawyer the English-speaking world has ever known. Thomas More was a renowned statesman, the author of a political fantasy that gave a name to a literary genre and a worldview (Utopia), and most famously, a Catholic martyr and saint, who was beheaded when he refused to follow his sovereign, King Henry VIII, in severing England's ties from the Catholic Church. In Ackroyd's hands, this renowned "man for all seasons" emerges in the fullness of his complex humanity, we see the unexpected side of his character as well as his indisputable moral courage. Acclaimed for his magisterial biographies of T. S. Eliot, Dickens, and Blake, Peter Ackroyd has once again scored a triumph.
