Book Summary:

This book is a companion to SmuckerOCOs 1977 publication The Sociologyof Canadian Mennonites, Hutterites and Amish, which is referred to asVol. 1. While the first volume consisted primarily of citations relatingto Canadian Mennonites, Hutterites, and Amish, the present volume ismuch broader in scope, in that it includes materials from both the U.S.and Canada, as well as from Europe. Vol. 2 is organized only slightly differently from the previous volume.There are four main sections: OC Bibliographies and EncyclopediasOCO;OC MennonitesOCO; OC HutteritesOCO; and OC Amish.OCO Each of the latterthree is further arranged by kind of material: OC Books andPamphletsOCO; OC Graduate ThesesOCO; OC ArticlesOCO (from journals andchapters from books); and OC Unpublished SourcesOCO (cited forMennonites only). Three appendixes appear at the end of the book. A nameindex and a subject index are also included. This handy bibliography lists 400 items (mostly published since 1977, though there are a few justified exceptions). It is important to notethat, while information on Mennonites and the Amish is more readilyavailable, the same on Hutterites is scarce. The 53 items listed will, in combination with the ones in the previous volume, prove very useful. The appendixes, though brief, may assist in further research, but theavailability of the materials mentioned therein is not apparent. Theappendixes do provide a little insight into the present-day status andactivities of these groups. Appendix A summarizes the Mennonite ChurchMember Profile II, which is the result of a current survey that willhelp identify trends in the beliefs of Mennonites today. This survey isexpected to be published in a book. Appendix B lists helpful sources(e.g., major Mennonite and Amish research libraries, bookstores, yearbooks, and handbooks relating to these groups). Appendix C listsspecial collections of Amish material. Only some of the books published in the U.S. before 1977 that weremissing from the earlier volume are included in this one. Several otherbooks may have been deliberately excluded (the authorOCOs criteria forinclusion or exclusion are not clearly stated). Just as in the previousbibliography, the writings of prominent Mennonite sociologists and otherauthors have been cited. Evidently books on sociological, religious, andhistorical aspects were chosen, though some fiction titles have alsobeen included. Some books could have been included but are not. Andthere is no mention of the journals Mennonite Historian or The Journalof Mennonite Studies, both of which are Canadian. The bibliography is mostly in essay form. There is no consistency inthe annotations. Some books and articles are annotated in great detail, while others receive only brief mention. A lot of effort has been putinto the arrangement of the material into subsections (books andpamphlets, etc.) for each group, but the user may well find this systemcumbersome. Since there are not many items, they could all have beenlisted in a single alphabetical sequence under each group. The authorindex is convenient, although a spot-check reveals some errors. Theterms used in the subject index are too broad and vague, and at timesserve no purpose. In publishing this bibliography, which reflects 10 years of research, Smucker has further extended his service to students of Mennonites. Theinformation gathered in this volume, as in the earlier one, is notrestricted to academic/research interest only. A bibliography is awelcome addition to any collection, and an annotated one has a distinctadvantage: it enables readers to choose more easily the books they wishto consult. Despite the inconsistencies prevalent in this book, there is no doubtthat, when used in conjunction with its predecessor, it will become avaluable tool for sociologists, historians, and theologiansOCoin fact, for anyone interested in studying or conducting research on thesefascinating people.a"

Book Summary:

Introduction by Don Yoder, PhD J. B. Fisher grew up in rural Lancaster County, Pennsylvania during the Great Depression and World War II. His memoir presents a unique story of coming-of-age in that time and place. Beginning with his parents' marriage in 1919 and chronicling his childhood, school years, and stormy adolescence, the author presents a riveting saga that brings him back to his roots after working as a teacher and coach at a prep school in Hawaii. Outside of Paradise: Growing Up Amish is a distinctive and thoroughly rewarding reading experience, running the gamut from laugh-out-loud comedy to cry-a-bit tragedy, at all times celebrating the triumph of the human spirit. Outside of Paradise shines an autobiographical light on a winsome protagonist on whose side the reader stays to the end. As an Amish memoir, it marches right to the head of the procession for its truth, its frankness, and its sympathetic yet no-holds-barred approach to describing what it meant to grow up Amish.- Don Yoder, Professor Emeritus of Folklore/Folklife, Devon, Pennsylvania As a reader who lived through the Great Depression and World War II, Outside of Paradise takes me back to that time and place in such vivid fashion that time and again I found myself exclaiming, Hey, that was ME! - Howard Blackman, Retired Instructor and Department Head, Lone Pine, California Publisher's website: http: //www.sbpra.com/JBFishe
