About this book

The idea of "Utopia" has made a comeback in the age of globalization, and the bewildering technological shifts and economic uncertainties of the present era call for novel forms of utopia. Tally argues that a new form of utopian discourse is needed for understanding, and moving beyond, the current world system.

Reviews

"A timely and significant intervention in contemporary discussions of globalization and utopia. The scope of the book is wide-ranging and ambitious, touching on a richly diverse set of topics, including contemporary critical theory, the figure of the world market, financial derivatives, the spaces of the global city, and narrative." - Phillip E.
