Эта книга - история двух островов: Утопии и Британии. Books of Мортон Артур Лесли. У каждого из них своя история. Обе развиваются параллельно и помогают взаимно объяснить одна другую. Цель настоящей книги - способствовать этому объяснению. Люди думали, надеялись, а иногда и боялись, что Утопия есть тот самый остров, в который может вскоре превратиться современная им Британия.
