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.
