Note Holmes County, Ohio, is home to the largest and most diverse Amish community in the world. Charles E. Hurst and David L. McConnell conducted seven years of fieldwork, including interviews with over 200 residents, to understand the dynamism that drives social change and schism within the settlement, where Amish enterprises and nonfarming employment have prospered. --from publisher description
