In a lively text, this leading scholar of Amish culture explains many of their puzzling practices and shows how the Amish flourish in the midst of modern society. 

by Donald B. Kraybill. The Amish are one of America's most fascinating and colorful religious communities. But how does a traditional group that shuns high school, computers, and the ownership of motor vehicles survive amid a high tech society? This concise and authoritative overview describes both the diversity and common practices of the Amish of North America as well as some of the changes underway in their communities.
