Utopia -- the concept more than the word -- has captured the imagination and fostered the hopes of men through thousands of years of recorded history. Behind the concept, one which various ages have redefined for their own particular situations, lies the nascent belief that humankind, working in harmony and unison, can create a better world and achieve maximum progress towards happiness.
