I have reached for two goals in this book that are not usually reached for simultaneously. First of all, I aim to do a partial ethnography of a commune-more specifically, a description of some of its beliefs and the practices that reveal them. Second, I aim to do a sociology of knowledge: I will not regard the meaning of the beliefs as self-evident.

The Survival of a Counterculture is an "'ethnographic' description of a 60s commune's beliefs and practices as well . Berger accomplishes some very valuable things in this work

The Survival of a Counterculture is an "'ethnographic' description of a 60s commune's beliefs and practices as well as a 'microsociology of knowledge' that is concerned with ideological analysiswith examining, in this case, the interplay between ideals and the imperatives of survival. A truly remarkable achievement. Berger accomplishes some very valuable things in this work. His sensitive depiction of communal lifestyle has the intended effect of illuminating some of the costs of conventional everyday life. His candor and reflexivity are challenges to the more usual, shallower styles of presenting claims to objectivity.

The Survival of a Counterculture is a lively, engaging look into the ways communards, or people who live in communes, maintain, modify, use, and otherwise live with their convictions while they attempt to get through the problems of everyday life.
