📒Half Way Home From Kinderlou ✍ James Edward Alexander
✏Half Way Home From Kinderlou Book Summary : Through a collection of short stories, a grandfather describes his happy childhood in the small town of Valdosta, Georgia. It was a simple time when children played simple games with simple toys. Those were the days when failure of a child to say "yes ma'am" and "yes sir" to grown folks was considered an act of disrespect which brought swift rebuke and punishment from the disrespected adult and the child’s parents. Most homeowners in his neighborhood only dreamed of indoor plumbing, electric lights and home telephone service. Despite the prevailing social order, dictated by racial segregation which choked the advancement of some of his neighbors, little James Edward was often permitted broader liberties to expand his borders simply because all of the adults encouraged his growth. His timing was right. Colored adults nourished his self confidence as though vicariously rekindling their own aspirations. White adults saw a fast moving innocent youngster with a cautions and keen intellect, so letting him roam was a gift to a child which did not threaten their prerogatives. So adults of both races sought ways to assuage the harshness of segregation for little James Edward by smothering him with affection and special attention. The effects of this esteem is reflected in his pleasant memories of the post depression years and other events of that time.
📒Forks In The Road ✍ James Edward Alexander
✏Forks in the Road Book Summary : From the author's website: "On my 17th birthday, June 21, 1951, I awoke in a racially segregated neighborhood. Before sunset I took a fork in the road that led into a community of different races, colors, ethnicities, and religions, where I was expected to instantaneously deport myself by a set of alien guidelines formulated by persons whose lifestyles and experiences differed from mine. There were no preparatory sessions for the physical, psychological, emotional or social transition, though all signs and symbols translated into a clear message: henceforth, my life would be significantly altered and measured by the new standards. At times the lessons were painful and pleasant; degrading and uplifting; humorous and sad, frightening and courageous; defeating and rewarding; daring and cautious, but always exciting."

📒Communes In America 1975 2000 ✍ Timothy Miller
✏Communes in America 1975 2000 Book Summary : Communes in America: 1975–2000 is the final volume in Miller’s trilogy on the history of American intentional communities. Providing a comprehensive survey of communities during the last quarter of the twentieth century, Miller offers a detailed study of their character, scope, and evolution. Between 1975 and 2000, the American communal experience evolved dramatically in response to social and environmental challenges that confronted American society as a whole. Long-accepted social norms and institutions—family, religion, medicine, and politics—were questioned as the divorce rate increased, interest in spiritual teachings from Asia grew, and alternative medicine gained ground. Cohousing flourished as a response to an increasing sense of alienation and a need to balance community and private lives. At the same time, Americans became increasingly concerned with environmental protection and preservation of our limited resources. In the face of these social changes, communal living flourished as people sought out communities of like-minded individuals to pursue a higher purpose. Organized topically, each chapter in the volume provides basic information about various types of communities and detailed examples of each type, from ecovillages and radical Christian communities to pagan communes and cohousing experiments. Miller also takes a step back to look at the prevalence of communal living in American life over the twentieth century. Based on exhaustive research, Miller’s final volume provides an indispensable survey and guide to understanding utopianism’s enduring presence in American culture.
