Abstract

In Dynamo Island: The Cultural History and Geography of a Utopia, David Scott offers a detailed vision of a fictional utopian island society, evoking historical forebears such as Thomas More’s formative Utopia. Although Scott’s account does not fully grapple with the potential challenges to his utopian vision, Olivia Spyth nonetheless welcomes Dynamo Island as an accessible piece of Utopian fiction for those both familiar with theories of alternative societies as well as those new to the field.
