Such living arrangements are often overshadowed, however, by the perception that they are doomed to fail, a perception founded as much on myth as reality. In this edited volume, Bill Metcalf draw together works by ten diverse and compelling people who have formed or joined communes or intentional communities. Together with fascinating histories, they provide compelling examples and instructional wisdom for the modern pursuit of happiness through communal living.
