Using examples as diverse as train accidents, novels and gardening, this book evaluates the prospects for utopian thought and practice in the context of a world organized by market managerialism. * Asks if ideas about utopia are redundant. * Evaluates the prospects for utopian thought and practice in a world organized by market managerialism. * Treats utopia as an organizational issue, rather than focusing on literary or historical interpretations. * Engages with ideas of utopia, dystopia and crypto--utopia, organization and management. * Uses diverse examples, such as train accidents, novels and gardening to explore issues in novel and thought--provoking ways.

Martin Parker is reader in social and organisational theory at the University of Keele. He holds degrees in anthropology and sociology from the Universities of Sussex, London and Staffordshire and previously taught sociology at Staffordshire. His writing is usually concerned with organisational theory and the sociology of culture but he engages in diettante dabbling in anything else that catches his eye. His recent books are Organisational Culture and Identity (Sage, 2000) and Against Management (Polity 2002) as well as the co--edited Science Fiction and Organisation (Routledge 2001) and The Age of Anxiety (Blackwell 2001).
