Richard T Schaefer, William W Zellner. This updated text takes an interdisciplinary look at eight extraordinary groups of people throughout American history. Each chapter is organized around a sociological principle which is then illustrated by a descriptive explanation of the lifestyles of these unique groups.

Next, lifestyle is located theoretically with reference to the concepts of culture, status, status group, subculture, idioculture, everyday life, and social world. The many different types of lifestyles in modern life are then briefly examined. Finally, we consider certain methodological approaches thought to be especially appropriate for exploring lifestyles.

Scientology churches sold the book alongside the works of Hubbard until 1983. Occasionally they manage an ineffectual tantrum.

One of my most favorite books ever. A required college read, passed along to several people when finished. Great buy.

Shipping was fast, and in the critical and short noticed time I needed to have it. I think the thing that bugged me was that it came with a tag that said $2 on it...and I paid about $16...about $8 normally and another 8$ or so for shipping...but still not much to complain about since it was in good shape and a textbook that was pretty costly brand new. I suggest not leaving the tag on and making me question validity in pricing. Other than that fantastic! Thank you! Saved me for my Sociology class assignments!

a really interesting book

If the aim of this book is to produce an effect of weirdness and to set apart groups in society as unapproachable, then I could affirm its success in the chapter on Christian Science. It is unfortunate that the research was so selective as to include only the surface appearances that deviate from society's majority, and then offer no explanations. But worse than the resultant character assassination of Mary Baker Eddy is the omission of the deep spirituality and religious sentiments of the religious praxis. There is not even a hint of the religion's profound relationship to Jesus Christ, which is the foundation of its mission and purpose. Also lacking is any explanation on the spiritual means through which a century and a half of healing has taken place.

A very insightful book into various religious groups. Be sure to check out rollingbaby.com for baby stroller related topics.

I had to read this for my sociology class. I didn't think that I would like it so much that I would end up reading the entire text eventhough we were not really required to do so for class per se. This book is one of the top 3 books that changed my life (and I've read quite a handful). I have never thought how skewed the things we learn about different religions actually are. I have gained more respect for all the religions discussed in this book. I especially like how it not only just talks about the religions and their lifestyles, but it is actually a fitting sociology supplement too because it applies sociological principles/ideas in the text (sociology terms are bolded). The book also managed to keep my attention despite some instances of boring topics (no offense). This book also helped me understand some of my friends that practice a couple of the religions in the book. I am thinking of buying the other versions of the book now simply because I really enjoyed this book. I highly recommend this book!!

Argh I wasn't sure whether to give this book a 3 or a 4...but since I think it is worth reading through once and going back occasionally to read some parts again...I'll make it a 4...seriously it's a close call.

This book goes over the basics concerning several of the odder religious groups (Amish, Oneida, Gypsies, Unitarian Universalists/religious atheists, Christian Science, The Hasidim, Father Divine, Mormons and Jehovah's Witnesses).
The most interesting sections by far were on the Amish, Oneida, Father Divine, Mormons and Jehovah's witnesses.

The sections on the Christian Science, Gypsies, Hasidim were boring, and man the section on Unitarian Universalists was downright irritating (for God's sake what kind of form of idiocy is it to become a religious atheist).

This book is a great resource in that it goes over the basic doctines and structure of these different cults (in depth) from the vantage point of disinterested observer. In the process you really learn which of your preconceived ideas concerning these groups were right and which weren't. Again it's great for just understanding these groups.
extraordinary groups offers the reader an extraordinary view into some of America's most avoidant and little known religions. Several of the groups portrayed by the authors are seldom accessible to the general population. For instance, rarely is there truly a detailed account of the Gypsy movement as striking as the one in this book. Also, for the religious historian the analysis of the Father Divine movement is both intriguing and fascinating, in addition, this is a historical movement that few Afro-Americans are even aware existed. Thanks Zellner for a great read!
