KIRKUS REVIEW

A comprehensive study of the outstanding communal projects tested out in this country, spreading over a good part of our history, and influencing many sections of the country. There are the familiar experiments, -- Robert Owen, Fruitlands and Brook Farm, Oneida, -- all economic and social experiments. But the talk of them were religious, many of them celebrate and mystic, and they include among many, the Labadists, Ephrata, the Rappite and Zoarite groups, the Quakers, the Jansonists and the Mormons. A definite contribution to Americana; a book for public and college libraries and for students of religion and of social manifestations.
