In Hutterite Diaries, Linda Maendel offers a rare glimpse into the daily routines and communal faith of her people, the Hutterian Brethren. From stories of working together to bring in the fall potato harvest to laugh-out-loud tales of sisterly love laced with revenge, Maendel invites readers into her Bruderhof, or colony, nestled on the prairie of western Canada. Here children and adults work, play, eat, and worship together, crafting a community of goods and living out an alternative to the individualism and consumerism of mainstream society.

Paul Tschetter Was a Leading Figure In Late Nineteenth-Century Hutterite history, the "Hutterite Joshua," who convinced 1,250 Hutterites to leave Russia in the 1870s and resettle in Dakota Territory. Tschetter's life elucidates the way that an immigrant community fought for survival in a North American environment that stressed assimilation to radically different political, economic, cultural, and religious values. Janzen provides an in-depth narrative and analysis of Tschetter's influence based on diaries, sermons, hymns, interviews, and other primary materials. "I welcome this long-overdue book on Paul Tschetter. Rod Janzen is to be commended for continuing to preserve the Prairieleut heritage. Paul Tschetter provided much needed leadership in a very transitional period of Hutterian history."---Tony Waldner, Forest River Hutterite Colony "Much has been written on the communal Hutterites, but Rod Janzen is one of the very few scholars who have tracked the history of the more numerous Prairieleut, or noncommunal Hutterites. Spotlighting the pivotal Prairieleut leader Paul Tschetter is a giant step forward in preserving the history of the `other' Hutterites."---Timothy Miller, University of Kansas "Janzen writes the way history ought to be written ... The author builds upon, and then goes far beyond all previous studies---in content, and especially in his solid interpretation and historical analysis where socioreligious perspectives are not shortchanged."---Leonard Gross, author of the Golden Years of the Hutterites "The Tschetter family is grateful for Dr. Janzen's thoughtful biography."---Wesley G. Tschetter, South Dakota State University "Paul Tschetter's biography---so well-written by the careful and detailed research of Rod Janzen---preserves as a lasting tribute the story of a wonderful and many-sided man and the remarkable community of the Prairieleut people in the context of a forever vanished society and era."---Max Stanton, Brigham Young University, Hawaii

The entries are listed under the subheadings: books, theses, articles and unpublished manuscripts. Preceding the bibliography itself is an essay by the editor originally presented to the Canadian Sociology and Anthropology Association. The essay outlines the differing conceptual assumptions of the researchers included in the book, the major methodologies employed and the main conclusions to be drawn from their work.

A Farewell To Alms

Why are some parts of the world so rich and others so poor? Why did the Industrial Revolution--and the unprecedented economic growth that came with it--occur in eighteenth-century England, and not at some other time, or in some other place? Why didn't industrialization make the whole world rich--and why did it make large parts of the world even poorer? In A Farewell to Alms, Gregory Clark tackles these profound questions and suggests a new and provocative way in which culture--not exploitation, geography, or resources--explains the wealth, and the poverty, of nations. Countering the prevailing theory that the Industrial Revolution was sparked by the sudden development of stable political, legal, and economic institutions in seventeenth-century Europe, Clark shows that such institutions existed long before industrialization. He argues instead that these institutions gradually led to deep cultural changes by encouraging people to abandon hunter-gatherer instincts-violence, impatience, and economy of effort-and adopt economic habits-hard work, rationality, and education. The problem, Clark says, is that only societies that have long histories of settlement and security seem to develop the cultural characteristics and effective workforces that enable economic growth. For the many societies that have not enjoyed long periods of stability, industrialization has not been a blessing. Clark also dissects the notion, championed by Jared Diamond in Guns, Germs, and Steel, that natural endowments such as geography account for differences in the wealth of nations. A brilliant and sobering challenge to the idea that poor societies can be economically developed through outside intervention, A Farewell to Alms may change the way global economic history is understood.
