This is the first scholarly biography of the life and thought of the French social critic Charles Fourier (1772-1837). Long regarded as merely a prophet of modern socialism and forerunner of Marx, Fourier was in fact a profound and systematic thinker in his own right, and his grandiose and sometimes bizzare-sounding utopian ideas and psychological theories must be viewed "not as curious species of exotic fauna but a part of a larger world." Beecher traces the development of Fourier's ideas through his early years as a traveling salesman and provincial journalist to his emergence as a political prophet and founder of one of the most significant early socialist movements in France. The result of over 20 years of careful research, his book is sure to become the standard on Fourier's life and writings. Raymond Frey, Drew Univ. Lib., Madison, N.J.
