An Amish Paradox: Diversity and Change in the World's Largest Amish Community

Charles E. Hurst and David L. McConnell

  • 3100


The authors contend that the Holmes County, Ohio, Amish are experiencing an unprecedented and complex process of change as their increasing entanglement with the non-Amish market causes them to rethink their religious convictions, family practices, educational choices, occupational shifts, and health care options. This book captures the complexity and creativity of the Amish, showing how they reinterpret tradition as modernity encroaches on their distinct way of life. (376pp. illus. Johns Hopkins Univ. Press, 2010.)
