Utopia for the realists:
and how we can get there

 

by Rutger Bregman

 

Doriot and Tanoto Libraries

JC577 .B74 2017

 

This is a book with one compelling proposition for which you can forgive the rest. It is utopian visions that have driven humanity forwards. It was the hope we could fly, conquer disease, motorise transport, build communities of the faithful, discover virgin land or live in permanent peace that has propelled men and women to take the risks and obsess about the new that, while not creating the utopia of which they dreamed, has at least got us some of the way. Celebrate the grip that utopia has on our imagination. It is the author of progress. (…)

You may not dream the same dreams as Rutger Bregman – a 28-year-old Dutch historian – but he invites you to take dreaming seriously.

For that alone, this book is worth a read.
