The book focuses on the cultural transformation of this unique religious group as they have moved toward the Protestant mainstream during the past 90 years. The writing is crisp, authoritative, and, at times, provocative. Certain to become one of the most significant books in this field, the book discusses plain dress, leadership, nonresistance and peace, the temperance movement, politics, and identity crises.
