in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of 24 documents, all in English, focus on the Old Order Amish Mennonite settlements in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Indiana from the early eighteenth century to approximately 2002. Virtually all of these consider the Amish way of life in light of their religious ideals, and most contain a discussion of Old World history and some description of the origins of various settlements in the New World. Hostetler provides an overview of the origins, values and continuity of social relations in the communities where the Amish reside, focusing on the three largest settlements in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Indiana, and providing data on socialization, schooling, family patterns, as well as demographic and occupational trends. Huntington discusses interactions between various Old Order Amish and other Mennonite church districts in central Ohio and interrelations with the non-Amish. She considers the integration of multiple aspects of Amish life: the maintenance of social boundaries, the retention of an orientation to the past as this pertains to the preservation of cultural continuity, the social and economic integration with nature, and the strict maintenance of a supportive church community. Bachman is a basic text on traditions and practices that occur throughout the life cycle of the Amish in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The Amish struggle with modernity and culture change (or lack thereof) is a major topic in many of the documents in this collection, particularly Kraybill, Huntington, Umble, Luthy, and Olshan. Huntington and Schwieder and Schwieder deal primarily with educational themes and issues, especially the rejection of secondary school education by the Amish. The economy, in terms of the development of cottage industries and small businesses, is described in Olshan for New York State, and in more general terms in Kraybill and Nolt. Population growth and fertility patterns are discussed in Greksa, while Campanella, Korbin, & Acheson deal with health care issues in reference to pregnancy and childbirth. The Old Order Amish Mennonites are a people of Swiss-German background who migrated to the United States during two main periods: 1727-1790 and 1815-1865. The earlier migrants settled in Pennsylvania, while the later settled in Ohio, New York, Indiana, and Illinois
