Editorial Reviews

Review

“This text covers the subject well and is recommended for school and public libraries.”
—Al Holliday, Pennsylvania Magazine

“This insightful and important book, which captures the life of a complex man, opens with a series of chapters by a daughter, colleagues and other scholars who have carefully followed the development of his career and influences.”
—Thomas J. Meyer, Mennonite Quarterly Review

“Hostetler's own writings in the book provide explanation and insight into Amish culture, offering interesting and little-known insight into the Amish way of life.”
—Lisa Kellar, Pittsburgh Magazine

“The book brings into focus many facets of Hostetler’s lifework and relates them to one another in an effective and compelling survey.”
—Steven D. Reschly, Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography

“Anyone interested in John Hostetler the person and scholar needs to read this volume. Anyone interested in John’s enormous contribution to scholarship and the public understanding of the Amish will find here a fascinating analysis. Anyone interested in the tensions of the scholarly enterprise amidst the pressures of communal and public expectations needs this book as well.”
—John A. Lapp, Pennsylvania Mennonite Heritage

“This text covers the subject well and is recommended for school and public libraries.”

—Al Holliday, Pennsylvania Magazine
