Annotation

Stories and poems, only one of which is noted as having been previously published, that depict an environmental eutopia and the means of achieving it. A couple of failures are also included. Each of the stories is followed by a note on the current situation regarding the issues raised in the story. “Cobble Hills” (79-83) is on ecovillages. “The Economists’ Celebration” (121-25) is the most explicitly eutopian of the stories in that it briefly shows the results of a new form of governmental budgeting in which it is recognized that all expenses are connected. The main example given is that spending money on youth a community development is much cheaper than spending money on crime and prisons, but the principle is extended to many different areas and produces a much better world.
