Annotation

Owen’s The Book of the New Moral World was published in seven parts between 1836 and 1844, each with a separate, different title page. The first five parts lay down and explain his principles, and the seventh part argues that his system will be adopted. This sixth part is the only explicitly utopian part in that it gives a detailed constitution and legal system for the Owenite eutopia, which differs from the text under the same title in 1830 Owen. See also 1813, 1830, 1839, 1841, 1843, 1846, and 1855 (2) Owen.
