From the seventeenth to the twentieth centuries America has been both a haven for utopian dreamers and a fertile ground for experiments in community. Closely examining the decades from the Civil War to World War I, Robert S. Fogarty provides the first comprehensive study of a neglected chapter in the history of American utopian and communal experiments.
Robert S. Fogarty is professor of history at Antioch College and editor of the The Antioch Review. A leading authority on American communes, he is the author of Dictionary of American Communal and Utopian History and The Righteous Remnant: The House of David, and the editor of The American Utopian Adventure (a nineteen-volume series).
