Saint Thomas MoresUtopiais one of the most important works of European humanism and serves as a key text in survey courses on Western intellectual history, the Renaissance, political theory, and many other subjects. Preeminent More scholar Clarence H. Miller does justice to the full range of Mores rhetoric in this masterful translation. In a new afterword to this edition, Jerry Harp contextualizes Mores life andUtopiawithin the wider frames of European humanism and the Renaissance.

Clarence H. Millers fine translation tracks the supple variations of Mores Latin with unmatched precision, and his Introduction and notes are masterly. Jerry Harps new Afterword adroitly places Mores wonderful little book into its broader contexts in intellectual history.George M. Logan, author of The Meaning of Mores Utopia

Sir Thomas More's Utopia is not merely one of the foundational texts of western culture, but also a book whose most fundamental concerns are as urgent now as they were in 1516 when it was written.Clarence H. Miller's wonderful translation of More'sclassicis now happily once again available to readers.This is the English edition that best captures the tone and texture of More's original Latin, and its notes and introduction, along with the lively afterward by Jerry Harp, graciously supply exactly the kinds of help a modern reader might desire.David Scott Kastan, Yale University
