About the Book

Throughout history, groups of people disillusioned with society have tried to create utopian communities organized on new principles. Typically, they hold some or all of their property in common. Often, they are motivated by religious convictions, or by some type of socialist ideology. While many of these communities collapsed, some in a matter of months, a few of them continued for decades and even generations.
This book analyzes what makes a utopian group successful and what can be learned from their example. Among the most successful of these utopian experiments were those inspired by the teachings of American economist Henry George. George’s vision of expanded individual freedom coupled with economic justice gives us a map towards a better world.
