Product Overview

Joseph Blasidocuments and describes the workings of an existing kibbutz society to provide a model for Utopian thinking and clear up confusion con-cerning Utopian values. He details the history and development of Kibbutz Vatik (a pseudonym), providing a systematic record of kibbutz culture: daily life and social arrangements, economic cooperation and work, politics, edu-cation, and attitudes of community members. Despite its advantages as a model Utopia, the kibbutz is not a perfect soci-ety. Having eliminated the most serious forms of social, economic, political, and educational fragmentation and violence, the communal group is left with the complicated and mounting problems of keeping a fellowship alive and well. Blasi assesses the communitys advantages and disadvantages, il-luminating the interlocking dilemmas that cut across social and political con-cerns. The Communal Experience of the Kibbutz updates our knowledge of kibbutz life in light of recent research. It gives a detailed account of the Utopian community in the kibbutz and its activities. The special quality of the kib-butz, Blasi argues, lies not so much in its proven success vis-a-vis other communal societies, but in that it is a communal alternative that most West-ern peoples can readily visualize as a real option. *Author: Blasi, Joseph R. *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 220 *Publication Date: 1986/01/01 *Language: English *Dimensions: 9.02 x 5.98 x 0.50 inches
