Martin, Ah, but fortunately some of us are doing the sociological research, and I recommend their work to you. Here are a few: Carl J. Guarneri - Fourierism and American Utopianism (very good general analysis of 19th century communities) Michael Hechter - Principles of Group Solidarity (very good on the problem of "free riders" in intentional communities.) Stering Delano -- Brook Farm: The Dark Side of Utopia (excellent study of the MA intentional community) Robert Nozick: Utopia, Anarchy, and the State. (philosophy mainly) You might also wish to consult, or even join, the Communal Studies Association. Our annual meeting this year is in Florida, and we publish a journal whose articles frequently concern social cohehsion and solidarity. The Society for Utopian Studies also a good site for information.
