A detatailed and well written account of this group of Anabaptists.

The oldest and largest communal society in North America, the Hutterites—Anabaptists of German origin, like the Amish, Mennonites, and Brethren—have long been the subject of scholarly study and popular curiosity. Werner Packull tells the comprehensive story of the Hutterite beginnings in their original homelands—particularly in Tyrol and Moravia—and discovers important relationships among early Anabaptist sects.
