What People are Saying About This

Darren Staloff

“This is simply the best single collection of documents and readings for undergraduate use. No other book has its scope and breadth. It is well balanced between sermonic, legal, political, and literary documents. Moreover, Vaughan's analytic focus on politics, society, religion, family, and the institution of cultural reproduction provide the maximum flexibility for someone trying to open up the various facets of Puritan New England.”

Richard W. Cogley

“A superb collection of sources about the origins and development of American Puritanism, skillfully edited and carefully chosen. The anthology is perfect for advanced undergraduates in colonial American history courses and in American religious history courses.”
