"This engrossing book is the first general history of the Shakers from their origins in eighteenth-centyr England to the present day. Drawing on written and oral testimony by Shakers over the past two centuries, Stephen J. Stein offers a full and often revionist account of the movement; the powerful charismatic leaders, the years of maturation and growth before the Civil War, the subsequent decline in fortune, and the adjustments to twentieth-century society. Shattering the romantic myths that have been perpetuated about the Shakers, Stein portrays a group that is factious, practical and fully human". Book in very good condition, five lines highlighted on one page.
