Edited by Richard Hollinger
Years in the making!--this 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
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.
