Searching for Utopia: The History of an Idea: Gregory.


*I am no longer an Avon representative and will receive no compensation in any way if you decide to sign up to be an Avon representative.

The process of signing up to sell Avon is very simple. You will have Avon reps jumping all over you to get you on their team. This is because the most profitable part of Avon is recruiting new representatives. However, the easy way is to go online to Avon.com and put in your information to have someone call you. You will then meet up with them and get everything started.

During your meeting with your new Avon Leader, she (or he) will tell you all the wonderful things you can achieve with Avon. You will not hear a negative thing come out of his/her mouth.

Once you fill out the paperwork (only 1 or 2 pieces of paper) and pay your $15 sign up fee, you will be given your Avon start-up kit. This kit includes all the information you need to know about running an Avon business. The most important are the costs to you, and the potential earnings. After all, you are trying to make money right? Those specific things will be discussed more next.

Your start-up kit will also include your black Avon tote, 10 current campaign brochures and 10 of the next campaign brochures. This is because brochures are ordered when you place your Avon order and you will need to be handing out the next brochure before your new order arrives. Every campaign runs for 2 weeks with a total of 26 for the year.

During your first campaign as an Avon Representative, you will earn 50% of your sales guaranteed. This does not include any fixed earnings items that are capped at 20% (clothes, shoes, jewelry, etc.). As long as you sell at least $50 worth of products for your first campaign, you are guaranteed 50% earnings on your next 3 campaigns.

Aspirations for a better – even a perfect – society have existed throughout history, often imagined in intricate detail by philosophers, poets, social reformers, architects and artists. This book is an illustrated history of a perennially powerful idea: the quest for the ideal society.

Gregory Claeys, a leading scholar in the field, surveys the influence of the idea of Utopia on history. Central to his exploration of ideal worlds are creation myths; archetypes of heaven and the afterlife; new worlds and voyages of discovery; ages of revolution and technological progress; model communities and kibbutzim; political and ecological dystopias; space travel and science fiction. The most significant utopias throughout history – whether envisaged or attempted – are covered, including visions of the ideal society in the West as well as American, Asian, African and the Arab worlds.

Complete with a wealth of photographs, paintings, engravings, maps, documents, posters and film stills, as well as comprehensive notes and a bibliography, this volume is a compelling and insightful exploration of the rich diversity of the utopian imagination. From classical times to the present day, it traces the enduring human need to imagine and construct ideal worlds.
