Families and Communes
An Examination of Nontraditional Lifestyles

October 1999 | 176 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
This book focuses specifically on the role of the family in communal life. Communal groups are one type of nontraditional families, some communes are predisposed to families while others are not and some communal families can be replacements or substitutes for nuclear families. Historic communal groups such as Shakers, Oneida, Amana, and the Mormons are investigated as are contemporary rural and urban communal groups such as twin Oaks, Jesus People USA, and the Hutterites.
