Abstract:

"A common human longing, the utopian community ideal has taken root firmly in America over the past 200 years and continues today. In Sweet Earth: Experimental Utopias in America, Joel Sternfeld looks at 60 historical, ongoing and newly-formed representative American utopias. In this work, Sternfeld continues his practice of chronicling the American landscape, offering here a visual history of the diverse and often ill-understood phenomenon of social experimentation in America. Sweet Earth brings together what might otherwise seem disparate, individualized social phenomena and makes visible the community of communities."--Jacket.
