The Riddle of Amish Culture

The Riddle of Amish Culture - Donald B. Kraybill

The Riddle of Amish Culture

The revised edition of this classic work brings the story of the Amish into the 21st century, incorporating new demographic research and recent interviews conducted among the Amish. 61 halftones. 13 line drawings.
Since its publication in 1989, The Riddle of Amish Culture has become recognized as a classic work on one of America's most distinctive religious communities. But many changes have occurred within Amish society over the past decade, from westward migrations and a greater familiarity with technology to the dramatic shift away from farming into small business which is transforming Amish culture. For this revised edition, Donald B. Kraybill has taken these recent changes into account, incorporating new demographic research and new interviews he has conducted among the Amish. In addition, he includes a new chapter describing Amish recreation and social gatherings, and he applies the concept of "social capital" to his sensitive and penetrating interpretation of how the Amish have preserved their social networks and the solidarity of their community.
