Utopia: The Search for the Ideal Society in the Western World <http://www.nypl.org/utopia/> From the front page of this New York Public Library (NYPL) exhibit, users can access three sections: Exhibition, Programming, and Resources. The Exhibition itself offers sample representations of ideal societies arranged in four main sections, beginning with Sources (ancient, medieval, and biblical utopias), ranging through Other Worlds (More to the Enlightenment) and Utopia in History (the revolutionary age through the nineteenth century), and finishing with Dreams and Nightmares (twentieth-century utopias and dystopias). To the left of each image are options to read more about or print the item (and, in some cases, an option to enlarge). The latter two sections offer a number of resources for those looking beyond the exhibit for more information. Programming lists related events scheduled throughout New York, and Resources offers annotated bibliographies and numerous links to related sites. A useful site for both the scholar and those with a general interest.
