The new society that the world awaited might yet be born in the humble guise of a backwoods village. This was the belief shared by the many groups which moved into the American frontier to create experimental communities--communities that they hoped would model for revolutionary changes in religion, politics, economics, and education in American society. For, as James Madison wrote, the American Republic was useful in providing things before held impossible. The communitarian ideal had its roots in the radical Protestant sects of the Reformation. Arthur Bestor shows the connection between the holy commonwealths of the colonial period and the nonsectarian experiments of the nineteenth century. He examines in particular detail Robert Owen's ideals and problems in creating New Harmony. In two essays added for the second edition, Dr. Bestor discusses the effects of the frontier and the migration of European ideas and people on these communities. He holds that the communitarians could believe in the possibility of nonviolent revolution through imitation of a small society only as long as they saw American institutions as flexible. The newly-added introduction by historian Donald Pitzer celebrates the groundbreaking contributions of Backwoods Utopias to the field of communal utopian studies. It reveals how BestorÕs Chautauqua-based youth prepared him to be open-minded and analytical. It tells engaging stories of BestorÕs pioneering on-site research in his own words from an unpublished address, and it illustrates how current scholars still follow this mentorÕs methods, and build theories on his foundation.
