Octavo, cloth-backed boards. First edition. Brief signed inscription by Le Guin to "David" on the front free endpaper. "The novel reveals the author's understanding of anarchist theories with the idea that the personal and political growth of the individual are complementary . [With her] complex literary, philosophical, and political construction, Le Guin challenges the idea of utopia itself and sets the basis for what has been called the 'critical utopia' -- an imperfect utopia in progress that, by questioning the very notion and convention of the genre, revitalizes it." - R.
