Brand-new, still in shrink-wrap, neither shelf- nor edge-worn, neither sunned nor marked as a remainder. From the publisher: "[Smaby] traces change in cultural norms through unique technical analyses of biographies which were read at a variety of Moravian gatherings. Within 100 years, Smaby asserts, Bethlehem grew from an egalitarian communal society of symbolic Brothers and Sisters into a privatized community of socially stratified families whose cultural ideal was no longer religious service but usefulness to family and society." Maroon covers with white lettering. 290 pp. with 45 illustrations, per the publisher. Additional postage may be required for oversize or especially heavy volumes, and for sets.
