Contending that in order to understand the English Revolution and Civil War of the 17th century, it is necessary to understand Puritanism, Hill portrays it as a living faith, answering the hopes and fears of yeomen and gentlemen, merchants, and artisans. He examines oath taking, the Sabbath, bawdy courts, the dignity of labor and poor relief; compares the household with the parish; and suggests that there might have been non-theological reasons for being a Puritan or supporting them. Reprinted from the 1958 edition published by Martin Secker & Warburg. Paper edition (unseen), $18.95. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
