American communalism isn't a disjointed, erratic, virtually ephemeral a part of our earlier, yet an on-going, crucial a part of American heritage. this significant research starts off with an exam of America's first non secular utopia at Ephrata, close to Lancaster, Pennsylvania, in 1732 and strains successive utopian experiments within the usa during the following centuries. the writer demonstrates that the utopian communal tale is an imperative side of the Puritan proposal of the USA as a urban upon a hill and a beacon mild for the realm the place the suitable society may be equipped and the place it will probably flourish.

After discussing the Ephrata Cloister (1724-1812), the writer turns to the dozen or so Shaker groups that unfold utopian communalism from New England to the Ohio Valley frontier within the antebellum years. subsequent, he examines a number of the Separatists, in addition to the Oneida neighborhood. He lines the heritage of the Hutterite utopias from Russia to the nice Plains and Canada among the Civil battle and global conflict I. In a bankruptcy on California counter tradition groups, he analyzes the Theosophist communes at Pint Loma and Temple domestic. ultimately, he discusses smooth non secular utopias starting from the Koreshian cohesion at Estero, Florida, to Zion urban close to Chicago, Dorothy Day's Catholic employee flow, the Sufi Utopia within the Berkshire Mountains, and the Pandanaram payment in Indiana.
