The Barefoot Architect
In 1862, he was arrested and confined in the Fortress of St. Peter and Paul, where he wrote his famous novel What Is to Be Done? The novel was an inspiration to many later Russian revolutionaries, who sought to emulate the novel's hero Rakhmetov, who was wholly dedicated to the revolution, ascetic in his habits and ruthlessly disciplined, to the point of sleeping on a bed of nails and eating only raw steak in order to build strength for the Revolution. Among those who have referenced the novel include Lenin, who wrote a political pamphlet of the same name.
Cohousing: A Contemporary Approach to Housing Ourselves by Kathryn McCamant

Building the Commune is a 2017 book by sociologist and philosopher George Ciccariello-Maher. In this work Maher focuses on the participatory democratic nature of the Venezuelan commune system focusing on the history of this institution developing within the poor barios of Venezuela during the economic troubles of the 1980s and 1990s and their political growth under the Hugo Chávez presidency.
Robert Heinlein’s ‘Stranger in a strange land’
would fit into this. Probably not as it doesn’t deal with economics specifically. But it definitely has a focus on alternative living.

The Social Labs Revolution: A New Approach to Solving our Most Complex Challenges
Current responses to our most pressing societal challenges—from poverty to ethnic conflict to climate change—are not working. These problems are incredibly dynamic and complex, involving an ever-shifting array of factors, actors, and circumstances. They demand a highly fluid and adaptive approach, yet we address them by devising fixed, long-term plans. Social labs, says Zaid Hassan, are a dramatically more effective response. Social labs bring together a diverse a group of stakeholders—not to create yet another five-year plan but to develop a portfolio of prototype solutions, test those solutions in the real world, use the data to further refine them, and test them again. Hassan builds on a decade of experience—as well as drawing from cutting-edge research in complexity science, networking theory, and sociology—to explain the core principles and daily functioning of social labs, using examples of pioneering labs from around the world. He offers a new generation of problem solvers an effective, practical, and exciting new vision and guide.
Against the Grain returns to pre-history and discusses the conditions under which the first people stopped living as hunter-gatherers and moved to live in permanent settlements based on agriculture and administered by an elite. Scott challenges the conventional narrative that this change was welcome and voluntary for most participants.
