California's Utopian Colonies

Book Overview
Behind the commune movement today lies an impulse for a simpler, less harried existence that has its roots deep in American history. During the last hundred years, California has contributed to the Utopian heritage more colonies than any other American state. From varied backgrounds--religious, secular, co-operative, socialistic, Theosophical, Marxian--each new society experimented with marriage, the raising of children, education, work, religion, or government.
