    >With his unique combination of broad historical knowledge and wry,
    >down-to-earth commentary, Rexroth ranges from "primitive communism" through
    >the communalist tendencies of early Christianity, the radical millenarian
    >movements of the Middle Ages and Reformation (Anabaptists, Diggers, Brethren
    >of the Free Spirit) and the numerous attempts, successful or otherwise, to
    >set up utopian communities in nineteenth-century America (Brook Farm,
    >Oneida, Fourierists, Hutterites) to the revival of communalist ideas and
    >experiments in the 1960s counterculture.
