In Globalization of Communes, Yaacov Oved shows that communal societies maintain a community based on cooperation and expand their influence through newspapers, television, and the Internet. The chief characteristics they share are openness to the outside world, and the search for a way to move beyond a world of individualism and competitiveness. To accomplish this, they embrace all the tools of the modern world."[http://www.transactionpub.com/title/Globalization-of%20Communes-978-1-4128-4948-7.html]

"In a new book, historian Yaacov Oved, himself a member of a kibbutz, suggests that the communal idea is flourishing as never before. He points out that the past five decades have shown a steady increase in the creation of cooperative communities in dozens of countries. These frameworks offer an alternative lifestyle to the competitive society in which most of us live. . . [H]e concedes that his research has not provided all the answers, just as his life as a kibbutz member did not, but both his scholarship and his personal experience of communal living have filled his life with meaning and strengthened his belief in the value of partnership and the principle of mutual responsibility."
