Michael Albert's latest work, Practical Utopia is a succinct and thoughtful discussion of ambitious goals and practical principles for creating a desirable society and includes a preface by Noam Chomsky


"Albert extends his analysis to just about every major domain of human concern and mode of human interaction, and investigates with care and insight how, in these domains, new principles could lead to a far more desirable society than anything that exists, and also how these goals can be constructively approached. It is a very valuable and provocative contribution to the quest for a world of much greater freedom and justice." —Noam Chomsky 

"Albert mulls over the better society that we may create after capitalism, provoking much thought and offering a generous, hopeful vision of the future. Albert's prescriptions for action in the present are modest and wise, his suggestions for building the future are ambitious and humane." —Milan Ra

"Michael Albert is an important thinker who takes us beyond radical denunciations and pretentious 'analysis' to a thoughtful, profound meditation on what a good society can be like." —Howard Zinn

"With his combination of hard-edged logic and visionary hope, Michael Albert is one of the treasures of the Left." —Barbara Ehrenreich
