Utopia / With Erasmus's The Sileni of Alcibiades - 99 edition

Utopia / With Erasmus`s The Sileni of Alcibiades (ISBN10: 087220376X; ISBN13: 9780872203761)
ISBN13: 978-0872203761
ISBN10: 087220376X

This edition has also been released as:
ISBN13: 978-0872203778
ISBN10: 0872203778

Summary: Wootton's new translation brings out the liveliness of More's work and offers an accurate and reliable version of a masterpiece of social theory. His edition is further distinguished by the inclusion of a translation of Erasmus's The Sileni of Alcibiade, a work very close in sentiment to Utopia, and one immensely influential in the sixteenth century. This attractive combination suits the edition especially well for use in Renaissance and Reformation courses as well as as for Western Civilization
survey courses. Wootton's Introduction simultaneously provides a remarkably useful guide to anyone's first reading of More's mysterious work and advances an original argument on the origins and purposes of Utopia which no one interested in sixteenth-century social theory will want to miss. ''This edition of Utopia seems to me just right! The edition's introduction is brisk and intelligent and at the same time nicely calculated to reach an average student who, most likely, does not know any history or geography. The addition of the Sileni of Alcibiades is a stroke of genius. I shall be using your edition in preference to the . . . edition in my courses. The price is fair as well.'' ---George Huppert, University of Illinois at Chicago
