Web Exhibit: "America and the Utopian Dream"

The Beinecke Rare Books and Manuscripts Division of Yale University Library has produced a web exhibit, "America and the Utopian Dream," which readers might find of interest in conjunction with the previously posted New Harmony conference announcement. The site contains images and manuscript materials about a number of American utopian communities, as well as literary views of utopias (and a few dystopias). Examples range from Sir Thomas More's Utopia to "Star Trek's" humanistic view of space travel.
