Editorial Reviews

Donald Pitzer

"In these pages, Maclure comes alive in all his energy, genius, generosity, and glaring idiosyncrasies.... The merits of Warren's work promise to make [this book] the standard biography." —Donald Pitzer, author of America's Communal Utopias

Indiana Magazine of History
"New Harmony: Then & Now provides a highly readable account of the communitarian movements in New Harmony, Indiana, alongside beautiful images that provide a window into the vibrant community that still exists along the banks of the Wabash River. While this book was clearly produced for a general audience, academic historians might glean much about nineteenth-century American society
from its pages." —Indiana Magazine of History
