Synopsis

THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER



'Listen out for Rutger Bregman. He has a big future shaping the future' Observer



'A more politically radical Malcolm Gladwell' New York Times



'The Dutch wunderkind of new ideas' Guardian



In Utopia for Realists, Rutger Bregman shows that we can construct a society with visionary ideas that are, in fact, wholly implementable. Every milestone of civilisation - from the end of slavery to the beginning of democracy - was once considered a utopian fantasy. New utopian ideas such as universal basic income and a fifteen-hour work week can become reality in our lifetime.



From a Canadian city that once completely eradicated poverty, to Richard Nixon's near implementation of a basic income for millions of Americans, Bregman takes us on a journey through history, beyond the traditional left-right divides, as he introduces ideas whose time has come.

Staff Choice

The return of utopian thinking, and the power of ideas - Bregman covers a lot of ground in this gripping and fast paced read, full of evidence backed by data to support his ideas. Some of these ideas we are going to hear a lot about in the coming years - UBI (universal basic income), reduced working weeks and open borders and others have already entered mainstream thought such as the joint disasters of austerity and increasing inequality. This book isn't a blueprint for the future, but an attempt to unlock it - to show how the power of ideas can change the course of history for the better.
