"Ursula K. Le Guin, winner of the National Book Award in children's literature and of science fiction's Nebula and Hugo awards for her novel "The Left Hand of Darkness", has here produced a stunning tour de force." - Promo from the front flap.
"The Dispossessed: An Ambiguous Utopia is a 1974 utopian science fiction novel by Ursula K. Le Guin, set in the same fictional universe as that of The Left Hand of Darkness (the Hainish Cycle). The book won the Nebula Award for Best Novel in 1974, won both the Hugo and Locus Awards in 1975, and received a nomination for the John W. Campbell Memorial Award in 1975. It achieved a degree of literary recognition unusual for science fiction works due to its exploration of many ideas and themes, including anarchism and revolutionary societies, capitalism, individualism and collectivism, and freedom versus imprisonment." - Wikipedia
