A well-researched, carefully documented study of the Mennonite, Huttterite and Doukhobor Communities in Canada which "traditionally lived somewhat separate from the larger society [with a communal ideal expressed] in distinctive practices related to landholding, the education of children, exemption from military service and non-participation in certain social welfare programs". The book examines the degree to which the Canadian government has accommodated these distinctive practices within the larger society and the broader global implications. Extremely uncommon..
