"Utopia" ist der Titel eines 1516 von Thomas Morus in lateinischer Sprache verfassten philosophischen Dialogs. Die Schilderung einer fernen "idealen" Gesellschaft gab den Anstoß zum Genre der Sozialutopie. Die Erstveröffentlichung geschah auf Betreiben des berühmten Humanisten Erasmus von Rotterdam 1516 in Löwen, weitere Drucke folgten 1517 in Paris und 1518 in Basel. Die erste deutsche Übersetzung - unter dem Titel "Von der wunderbarlichen Innsul Utopia genannt, das andere Buch" - erschien 1524. Rahmenhandlung sind die Erzählungen eines Seemannes, der eine Zeit lang bei den Utopiern gelebt haben will. Der Roman beschreibt eine auf rationalen Gleichheitsgrundsätzen, Arbeitsamkeit und dem Streben nach Bildung basierende Gesellschaft mit demokratischen Grundzügen. In der Republik ist aller Besitz gemeinschaftlich, Anwälte sind unbekannt, und unabwendbare Kriege werden bevorzugt mit ausländischen Söldnern geführt. Das Buch war so prägend, dass man fortan jeden Roman, in dem eine erfundene, positive Gesellschaft dargestellt wird, als Utopie oder utopischen Roman bezeichnete. Bedeutende Utopien nach "Utopia" waren "A Modern Utopia" von H. G. Wells, "Ecotopia" von Ernest Callenbach und "Island" von Aldous Huxley. Das Genre des utopischen Romans wird heute oft als Bereich der Science-Fiction aufgefasst.

This book opens with an attempt to give clarity, substance and precision to the definition of utopia by isolating its characteristics in contrast with those of other forms of ideal society. The value of these distinctions is shown in a detailed re-examination of the sixteenth-century European writers who developed the re-emergent form of utopia.

Sir Thomas More wrote Utopia in 1516 in Latin. His Utopia is a fictional island, whose society, religion and politics he explores. Critics do not believe that the island depicted More's idea of the perfect society, but rather that he hoped to throw the politics of his own time into a new light by contrasting them with his imagined island society. The work references Plato's Republic.

This is a story of belief, disillusionment and atonement. Long identified with leftist causes, the journalist Eugene Lyons was by background and sentiment predisposed to early support of the Russian Revolution. A "friendly correspondent," he was one of a coterie of foreign journalists permitted into the Soviet Union during the Stalinist era because their desire to serve the revolution was thought to outweigh their desire to serve the truth. Lyons first went to the Soviet Union in 1927, and spent six years there. He was there as Stalin consolidated his power, through collectivization and its consequences, as the cultural and technical intelligentsia succumbed to the secret police, and as the mechanisms of terror were honed. As Ellen Frankel Paul notes in her major new introduction to this edition, "It was this murderous reality that Stalin's censors worked so assiduously to camouflage, corralling foreign correspondents as their often willing allies." Lyons was one of those allies. Assignment in "Utopia "describes why he refused to see the obvious, the forces that kept him from writing the truth, and the tortuous path he traveled in liberating himself. His story helps us understand how so many who were in a position to know were so silent for so long. In addition, it is a document, by an on-the-scene journalist, of major events in the critical period of the first Five-Year Plan. As Ellen Frankel Paul notes in her major new introduction to this new edition, Assignment in "Utopia "is particularly timely. The system it dissects in such devastating detail is in the process of being rejected throughout Eastern Europe and is under challenge in the Soviet Union itself. The book lends insight into the "political pilgrim" phenomenon described by Paul Hollander, in which visitors celebrate terrorist regimes, seemingly oblivious to their destructive force. The book is valuable for those interested in the Stalinist era in the Soviet Union, those interested in radical regimes and political change, as well as those interested in better understanding current events in Europe. It will also be useful for the tough questions it poses about journalistic ethics.
