With an introduction by philosopher Thomas Nagel, this edition brings Nozick and his work to a new generation of readers.
The foundational text of libertarian thought First published in response to John Rawls’ A Theory of Justice, Robert Nozick’s Anarchy, State, and Utopia has become a defining text of classic libertarian thought.
Challenging and ultimately rejecting liberal, socialist, and conservative agendas, Nozick boldly asserts that the rights of individuals are violated as a state’s responsibilities increase-and that the only way to avoid these violations is the creation of a minimalist state limited to the enforcement of contracts and to protection against force, fraud, and theft.
Translated into 100 languages, winner of the National Book Award, and named one of the 100 Most Influential Books since World War II by the Times Literary Supplement, Anarchy, State and Utopia remains one of the most theoretically trenchant and philosophically rich defenses of economic liberalism to date.
Debunking Utopia Swedish author Nima Sanandaji explains why this is all wishful thinking.
But overall, it is a unique culture based on hard work, healthy diets, social cohesion and high levels of trust that have made Nordic countries successful.
He systematically proves that the high levels of income equality, high lifespans and other signs of social success in the Nordics all predate the expansion of the welfare state.
Perhaps most astonishing are his findings that Nordic-Americans consistently outperform their cousins who live across the ocean.
Sanandaji’s previous writings on the roots of Nordic success have gained media attention around the world and been translated into many languages.
As Sanandaji shows, there is much Americans can learn from both the successes and failures of Nordic-style social democracy.
By copying Nordic policies, many in the American left hope to transform America to a similar socialist utopia.
Certainly, some aspects of Nordic welfare states, such as childcare provision, merit the admiration of liberals.
Sanandaji explains how the Nordic people adopted this culture of success in order to survive in the unforgiving Scandinavian climate.
If anything, the Nordic countries reached their peak during the mid-twentieth century, when they had low taxes and small welfare states.
People of Nordic descent who live under the American capitalist system not only enjoy higher levels of income, but also a lower level of poverty than the citizens of the Nordic countries themselves.
Debunking Utopia, which expands on this work, should be read by all liberals and conservatives alike who follow the debate over the future of American welfare.
Left-leaning academics, liberal pop stars such as Bruce Springsteen, and Democrat politicians from Bernie Sanders to Bill and Hillary Clinton to Barack Obama all have one thing in common: they are avid admirers of Nordic-style social democracy.
At first glance, Nordic countries seem to have everything liberals want to see in America: equal income distribution, good health, low levels of poverty, and thriving economies, all co-existing with big welfare states.
In Yugoslavia’s “Third Way” architecture, Brutalism meets the fantasticalSqueezed between the two rival Cold War blocs, Yugoslav architecture consistently adhered to a modernist trajectory.
As a founding nation of the Non-Aligned Movement, Yugoslavia became a major exporter of modernist architecture to Africa and the Middle East in a postcolonial world.
This remarkable body of work has sparked recurrent international interest, yet a rigorous interpretative study never materialized in the United States until now.
By merging a variety of local traditions and contemporary international influences in the context of a unique Yugoslav brand of socialism, often described as the “Third Way,” local architects produced a veritable “parallel universe” of modern architecture during the 45 years of the country’s existence.
Published in conjunction with a major exhibition on the architectural production of Yugoslavia between 1948 and 1980, this is the first publication to showcase an understudied but important body of modernist architecture.
Featuring new scholarship and previously unpublished archival materials, this richly illustrated publication sheds light on key ideological concepts of Yugoslav architecture, urbanism and society by delving into the exceptional projects and key figures of the era, among them Bogdan Bogdanovic, Zoran Bojovic, Drago Galic, Janko Konstantinov, Georgi Konstantinovski, Niko Kralj, Boris Magaš, Juraj Neidhardt, Jože Plecnik, Svetlana Kana Radevic, Edvard Ravnikar, Vjenceslav Richter, Milica Šteric, Ivan Štraus and Zlatko Ugljen.
So how can the philosopher try to reform his society? In his fictional discussion, More takes up a question first raised by Plato and which is still a challenge in the contemporary world.
Dominic Baker-Smith’s introduction examines the conflicting voices and perspectives of More’s masterpiece and relates them to the European context of his time.
As the traveller, Raphael, describes the island to More, a bitter contrast is drawn between this rational society and the custom-driven practices of Europe.
In the history of political thought few works have been more influential than Utopia, and few more misunderstood.
This new edition also includes a chronology, notes, appendices, glossary and suggested further reading.
‘Even if you can’t eradicate harmful ideas or remedy established evils, that’s no reason to turn your back on the body politic’In Utopia, Thomas More gives us a traveller’s account of a newly-discovered island where the inhabitants enjoy a social order based on natural reason and justice, and human fulfilment is open to all.
