The Mormons, founded in the United States and having different kinds of connections to Europe than the other communities had, present a story unlike those of the others. The interest of their founder, Joseph Smith, Jr. With that, some cooperative projects were initiated, but those projects were more like mutual-aid societies than like the villages of Shakers and Harmonists and their kin.
The more seriously communal undertakings in the LDS church all date to after After the murder of founder Smith in there was a leadership struggle, and several would-be heads of the churc—James Strang, Alpheus Cutler, Lyman Wight, and others—started their own LDS churches entirely separate from the larger one that came to be headed by Brigham Young. In several cases their adherents took up communal living, typically founding their own villages.
One might argue that those groups at least deserve mention as early attempts to put the communitarian ideas of Joseph Smith into practice. One might wish other early American communities could have received the same expert treatment that the ones treated in this volume did. Full chapters on the Zoar Separatists, the Moravians, the Labadists, and the Woman in the Wilderness, among others, would be welcome. But authors and editors must set boundaries, and what is included here is excellent scholarship, skillfully presented.

Love the move to put Mormonism in conversation with these communalistic, transnational groups. Thanks Christopher!
Whether Mormonism is, was, or has been Protestant is a rich question, I think. At the very least, I was struck by how persistently invested and intertwined Mormons were in nineteenth-century North Atlantic Protestant conversations and communities. They were pretty cosmopolitan communalists.
