Stephen Arata has created an invaluable edition of News from Nowhere, one of the seminal texts of the nineteenth century.

This astute and long overdue reappraisal provides a lucid overview and a wealth of contextual information. An excellent resource.
Elizabeth Helsinger, University of Chicago
Stephen Arata provides an especially informative account of the social here and now out of which an imagined Nowhere emerged.
Written in 1890, at the close of William Morriss most intense period of political activism, News from Nowhere is a compelling articulation of his mature views on art, work, community, family, and the nature and structure of the ideal society. A utopian narrative of a future society, it is also an immensely entertaining novel.
This Broadview edition includes a wide variety of contextualizing documents, including portions of Morriss essays, lectures, and journalism; excerpts from precursor utopian texts; writings on Bloody Sunday, art, work, and revolution; and contemporary reviews.
