An in-depth, detached perspective on the phenomenon of communal living in the US, complete with a thoughtful analysis of the movement's origins in history and foundational ideologies.

Among other things, Melville relates the communes he visits to the revival of the anarchist tradition, a search for alternative social structures to satisfy the needs for interdependence and community which are frustrated by mainstream culture, and a rebellion against the American middle class.

Edition: 1972.
