Book News Annotation:

After highlighting and elaborating on his earlier research regarding relations between men and women in the early Shaker, Oneida Perfectionist, and Mormon movements, Foster further explores the ways in which these unorthodox experiments in communal living addressed issues of major contemporary concern such as the changing role of women, the nature of the family, and the impact of sexuality on society. Many of the chapters are revised from their original publication elsewhere.
