The dispossessed : an ambiguous Utopia

Ursula K. Le Guin (Author)
"Shevek, a brilliant physicist, attempts to reunite two planets cut off from each other by centuries of distrust. Anarres, Shevek's homeland, is a bleak moon settled by an anarchic utopian civilization; Urras, the mother planet, is a world very similar to Earth, with its warring nations, great poverty, and immense wealth. Shevek risks everything in a courageous visit to Urras--to learn, to teach, to share. But his gift becomes a threat, and in the profound conflict which ensues, Shevek must re-examine his philosophy of life."--Provided by the publisher
