Barriers Needed for Progress was a book on political science written by Angelina Jutta.

In their discussion during their stay in the Republic of Erewhon, W.E.B. Du Havel and Captain Michael Oversteegen of the Royal Manticoran Navy discussed certain arguments used by Jutta, with Oversteegen paraphrasing her argument that the mere fact that an aristocracy existed gave the nation in question manifold benefits.
