Nordhoff's parents returned to the United States with him in 1889, living first in Pennsylvania, then Rhode Island, and finally settling in California by 1898. Charles Bernard Nordhoff's grandfather was Charles Nordhoff, a journalist and author of non-fiction books. Nordhoff himself showed an early interest in writing. His first published work was an article in an ornithological journal, written in 1902 when he was just fifteen. The communistic societies of the united states. By: CHARLES NORDHOFF. Charles Bernard Nordhoff (February 1, 1887 - April 10, 1947) was an English-born American novelist and traveler.

Experiments in communism sprang up all over the United States in the latter half of the 19th century, idealistic attempts at utopian living amidst the clanging capitalism of the expanding nation. They were already on their way out when American journalist CHARLES NORDHOFF (1830-1901) took his grand tour of these communities, and his unsentimental, unbiased examination of their origins, religious beliefs, daily life, social habits, and other details-based on his own firsthand observation and first published in 1875-remains the best accounts we have of: • the Amana Society • the Harmonists at Economy • the Separatists of Zoar • the Shakers • the Oneida and Wallingford Perfectionists • the Aurora and Bethel Communes • the Icarians • the Bishop Hill Colony • the Cedar Vale Commune • the Social Freedom Community Complete with a look at three colonies not communistic in nature-Anaheim, California; Vineland, New Jersey; and Silkville Prairie Home, Kansas-and statistics on commune life as it existed in the day, this is an invaluable resource for students of socialism and communism, of American social experiments, and of the little-explored corners of American history in general.

I enjoyed this account even though it was written in the 1870's. Some of the descriptions are based upon word of mouth as many of the principles have died off. All in all it is a pretty favorable account of life in these societies.

The Communistic Societies of the United States by Charles Nordhoff is an interesting book. The Communistic Societies seem to be based more on religious principles, than on Marxism. As a matter of fact, I see nothing of Marxism in them, at all.

Americans have never really learned the strange in-depth history of our country. Why the constant 'commune' attempts in this country, versus freedom and capitalism. We are now on the threshold of communism finally coming into being. This is a great book telling the beginnings of where we are today. Many years ago, I read books that stated politically, the U.S. would merge with communist Russia. I was flabbergasted at the time, for Americans were led to believe the U.S. was staunchly democratic. Our history books never told us how the West supported and propped up the utter and continual failings of communism. President Hoover, for instance, was able to marshal enormous U.S. economic aid to Communist Russia in a heartbeat, yet was totally incompetent and unwilling to use any help for Americans as our own economy tanked into the Great Depression. Interestingly, it was the Depression that heralded the Communist Roosevelts. Franklin Roosevelt, by the way, was a 33 degree Mason. Today, we are finally seeing the real Joker, the real Jack-in-the-box surprise, the real intent they have ever had for America. This, my friends, is why the Freemasons founded America....and it wasn't for democracy. Today, as the country is crumbling, ask a 'brother Mason' what happened to their lofty ideals, their great experiment, and why they don't stand up, and speak for America's freedom. Promoted by the wealthy and the intelligensia, we must ask ourselves, where does this constant theme of a communist 'heaven' come from. The great communist reality has a dividing line between those considering themselves an Elite, and the 'unwashed' masses in a new serfdom. Ask China about its worker's paradise. And so we come back to communist attempts from America's beginning. God help this country.

Absolutely wonderful book. It surely expresses my idea of perfect societies that have community value, respect for individuals, pacifism, etc. I just wish I had joined the Shaker community in Maine when I was younger and my chance. I still buy spices and herbs from the Shakers.

I read the original version, and that is the version on which this review is based.

The United States has featured many utopian communities over time. This book assembles a set of those that the author labels "communistic." I am not sure that that designation is completely accurate in all the cases.

Examples? The Shakers, The Amana Society, Oneida, Aurora, and so on. My personal favorite? Bishop Hill, Illinois. This colony was created just miles from my home town, Kewanee, Illinois. The book speaks of its decay, but--in recent years--the buildings have been refurbished and the community is now a nice tourist attraction. I have enjoyed visiting the site (last time was a couple decades or so ago). Communistic? Not sure. . . .

Anyhow, an interesting review of a number of utopian societies. . . .

the author has a real attitude. He hates the U.S. and wants you to hate it too. Too late, I've spent enough time in other countries to know this place prior to 2009 had been the most fantastic place to live on earth and socialism and communism does not a happy place make. Go see for yourself, I did.

The manner in which these societies were constructed are quite fascinating and should be observed by anyone whom is interested in business and law. If have ever read up on how an Army was structured during a particular time period and found it interesting, then I am sure you would find this book interesting as well.
