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.
