University of North Carolina Press

This book plays a key role in enhancing the understanding of readers regarding the role of Puritanism in the reestablishment of political trends and institutions in colonial New England during the seventeenth century. The text provides compelling evidence to demonstrate how Puritanism played a decisive role in laying the foundation of modern politics in this and other colonies during the seventeenth century. The book depicts a society that gives importance to collective responsibility, participation, and equal opportunities in the political process despite differences of opinion between the colonists and the residents of the colonies.

Keywords:   Puritanism, New England, political trends, evidence, modern politics
