"News from Nowhere" is a utopian socialist novel often ignored by Marxists and others who denounce it as backward-looking. It is true that Morris's vision of a society which has reverted to an agricultural base seems almost gentle by contemporary standards, but careful readers will still gain insights into Morris's personal philosophy through this unique work.

As usual, Oxford publications are always of top quality. This edition is a thoroughly fine piece of scholarship, well-structured and presented.From the Back Cover:
Written in 1890, at the close of William Morris's most intense period of political activism, News from Nowhere is a compelling articulation of his mature views on art, work, community, family, and the nature and structure of the ideal society. A utopian narrative of a future society, it is also an immensely entertaining novel.
This Broadview edition includes a wide variety of contextualizing documents, including portions of Morris's essays, lectures, and journalism; excerpts from precursor utopian texts; writings on Bloody Sunday, art, work, and revolution; and contemporary reviews.
