The Amish by Kraybill, Johnson-Weiner, Nolt

The-Amish-Don-Kraybill-Karen-Johnson-Weiner-Steven-NoltThe Amish have always struggled with the modern world. Known for their simple clothing, plain lifestyle, and horse-and-buggy mode of transportation, Amish communities continually face outside pressures to modify their cultural patterns, social organization, and religious world view. An intimate portrait of Amish life, The Amish explores not only the emerging diversity and evolving identities within this distinctive American ethnic community, but also its transformation and geographic expansion.

Donald B. Kraybill, Karen M. Johnson-Weiner, and Steven M. Nolt spent twenty-five years researching Amish history, religion, and culture. Drawing on archival material, direct observations, and oral history, the authors provide an authoritative and sensitive understanding of Amish society. MORE DETAILS.

This book is also available as a PBS original ‘AMERICAN EXPERIENCE’ video DVD.
