Summary
In The End of Utopia, noted social critic and historian Russell Jacoby takes a sobering look at the future of politics, most notably the politics of the liberal left, and does not like what he sees. Like Daniel Bell and Francis Fukuyama, Jacoby agrees that utopianism -- the engine of social and political change -- is obsolete. But Jacoby does not celebrate the resulting triumph of liberal capitalism. The obsolescence of utopianism, he argues, is born not of consensus but rather of the exhaustion of political alternatives
