Community Histories, Volume 6

Years in the making!–this the much-anticipated volume of local Bahá’í histories provides new insight into the unfoldment of community life. The authors challenge many commonly held assumptions about Bahá’í history and demonstrate the diversity of Western Bahá’í communities.

Each essay carefully documents the internal dynamics of a particular community, from the early days of the Faith to the present, and includes six essays by different Bahá’í scholars on the history of the Bahá’í communities in: Kenosha, Wisconsin; Baltimore, Maryland; Sacramento, California; St. Brunswick, Nova Scotia; Kansas; and Great Britain.

Richard Hollinger’s introduction is a full additional essay on critical periods in the evolution of the national Bahá’í community of the United States. Also included are details of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá’s visits to Baltimore, Kenosha, and Sacramento.
