From a 17th-century antislavery colony to a town in Brazil founded by Henry Ford, this charmingly illustrated graphic novel explores the places that come to exist when people unsatisfied in their homelands seek to create something better.
The book is divided into five chapters (intentional communities, micronations, failed utopias, visionary environments, and strange dreams), and each of the 30 profiles within those chapters are written to stand alone. The stories told will encourage students to think critically about what makes a country. Note: select chapters contain mature content.
