Annotation

Not strictly a utopia but basic to the development of British and American utopianism. Owen was a prolific and repetitive author who wrote many proposals for communities with detailed constitutions and rules and regulations. He also founded or inspired communities in both the U. K. and the U. S. This book outlines his basic, and generally unchanged, principles. See also 1831, 1839, 1841, 1844, 1846, and 1855 (2) Owen for more explicitly utopian works.
