The Puritan Tradition in America, 16201730 (Library of New England)

The Puritan Tradition in America, 16201730 (Library of New England) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A classic documentary collection on New England's Puritan roots is once again available, with new material.

Synopsis:

Many students of our national character would agree that, for better or worse, the Puritan tradition had an enormous effect on the assumptions and aspirations of today's Americans. This book tells the story, largely through the participants' own words, of the emergence of that tradition. It provides a broad range of primary documents--religious, political, social, legal, familial, and economic--for an understanding of Puritanism in early New England. Originally published in 1972, it is reissued here with a new introduction and two new documents: extracts from Anne Hutchinson's trial and from John Winthrop's "Experiencia."
