About the Author

Anthony Burns is associate professor in the School of Politics and International Relations at the University of Nottingham in the United Kingdom.


Burns offers a meticulously researched book that makes a somewhat maverick contribution. * Science Fiction Studies, March 2009 * Perhaps the most detailed and certainly one of the most widely researched studies yet done on Le Guin's masterpiece. -- Carl Freedman, professor and director of graduate studies, Louisiana State University The Dispossessed may well be the most widely read book in the United States to seriously approach the question of what an anarchist society might look like....Both of these volumes are solid pieces of scholarship, well grounded in the relevant literature....Students of utopian studies would find both rewarding. * Anarcho-Syndicalist Review, Spring 2011 *
