Centuries ago, the moon Anarres was settled by utopian anarchists who left the Earthlike planet Urras in search of a better world, a new beginning. Now a brilliant physicist, Shevek, determines to reunite the two civilizations that have been separated by hatred since long before he was born.

The Dispossessed is a penetrating examination of society and humanity -- and one man's brave undertaking to question the unquestionable and ignite the fires of change.

"there is no need to be afraid of bra burning, hairy arm-pitted, men haters in this book" I'm not sure to which extend this comment is ironic but the analogy feminists/man-haters, for someone who's commenting on science fiction is quite chocking considering that it is THE genre that helped diffusing feminist theories in literature...

I am not sure if this book changed my outlook on how we organise societies or reinforced it. This is one of my very favourite books of all time and one that I recommend people to read at every opportunity.
