A growing number of people disenchanted with the pressures and demands of mainstream lifestyles are drawn by the nostalgic appeal of traditional, mostly agrarian and artisanal, lifestyles as practiced in residential communities where liminal rituals of membership serve to validate pacts to live and work together in cooperative social and economic relations. --Manzella focuses on the ways in which todays most innovative and controversial ecovillages diverge from the hippie communes of yesteryears counterculture and from older communal forms such as kibbutzim and arts and crafts colonies, and how todays nonsectarian spiritual and volunteer service communities differ from traditional religious communes and ashrams.

He reports his field investigations of a whole new generation of communal living experiments, such as residential land trusts, survivalist retreats, urban cohousing, green housing cooperatives, student co-ops, and New Age organic agrarian communes. -
