Editorial Reviews

Review

“Goldberg recounts [the] story in lively fashion, supplementing the narrative with relevant quantitative information. This is a balanced and attractive model for regional ethnic-economic history.”—American Historical Review



“[Goldberg’s] research is truly prodigious, and he has uncovered a great deal of important information. Pieces together a previously unknown story, utilizes innovative methodologies, and serves as an interesting case study of an agricultural colony’s rise and fall.”—The Journal of American History

About the Author

Robert Alan Goldberg is professor of history and director of the Tanner Humanities Center at the University of Utah. His most recent books are Barry Goldwater and Enemies Within: The Culture of Conspiracy in Modern America.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This was a historic study in which I rooted for the subjects throughout the entire book, wishing them success in this endeavor. That it never happened was disappointing. Later attempts at cooperative or collective enterprise in Palestine bore more fruit. This was the chronicles of a failed attempt in Utah, but the attempts must keep happening. I believe the author would agree.
