Alternative Worlds: Blue-Sky Thinking since 1900

Alternative Worlds: Blue-Sky Thinking since 1900 (Cultural History & Literary Imagination) by Ricarda Vidal and Ingo Cornils
English | 2014 | ISBN: 3034317875 | 333 pages | PDF | 3 MB

In an attempt to counteract the doom and gloom of the economic crisis and the politicians' overused dictum that ‘there is no alternative', this interdisciplinary collection presents a number of alternative worlds that were conceived over the course of the last century. While change at the macro level was the focus of most of the ideological struggles of the twentieth century, the real impetus for change came from the blue-sky thinking of scientists, engineers, architects, sociologists, planners and writers, all of whom imagined alternatives to the status quo.
Following a roughly chronological order from the turn of the nineteenth century to the present, this book explores the dreams, plans and hopes as well as the nightmares and fears that are an integral part of alternative thinking in the Western hemisphere. The alternative worlds at the centre of the individual essays can each be seen as crucial to the history of the past one hundred years. While these alternative worlds reflect their particular cultural context, they also inform historical developments in a wider sense and continue to resonate in the present.
