MEDIA REVIEWS
A must reading for anyone doing serious study of the Hutterites... An excellent history of the Hutterites... [which] will serve for many years to come as a good benchmark for an analysis of change in the way of life of this extraordinary group. * Mennonite Life *
A fine study of the oldest Western communal society, originally Moravian, who live now on the American and Canadian plains. * New York Times Book Review *
An impressive picture of a people who share the general Anabaptist rejection of worldly thrills and pleasures, but who have a special distinction of their own-a strict devotion to communal living that has endured with little change for more than four centuries. * Time *
Hutterite Society, an even more impressive work than Hostetler's earlier Amish Society, is surely destined to become a minor classic widely read and acclaimed by scholars and the general public. * Sociology *
Essential to any study of Hutterites. * American Historical Review *
