Book Review - Communities Directory: A Guide to Intentional Communities and Cooperative Living

Communities Directory: A Guide to Intentional Communities and Cooperative Living

 

by the Fellowship for Intentional Community (FIC)
Rutledge, MO: Fellowship for Intentional Community, 2000. 456 pages, $30.00

Thinking of joining or creating an intentional community? This comprehensive volume will help you decide what you want, where you might want it, and whether it already exists among the 700 intentional communities listed.

The directory’s opening section captures the central theme of community living: the lack of any one theme. It delivers short essays on nearly every aspect of life in intentional communities – why they exist, how different they are, what their problems are and how they solve them, and how to start your own community.

The body of the book consists of maps of community locations, a cross-reference table for comparison of communities by such criteria as population, year formed, and dietary norms, and brief descriptions of each community, written by community members.
