(p.191) Conclusion
A Reforming People

David D. Hall

University of North Carolina Press

The Conclusion summarizes the book's analysis. It has focused on the role of colonial officials and church ministers in formulating and implementing rules and regulations in colonies such as New England. It has found that sometimes the ministers and colonists faced stiff resistance from the residents of the colonies in fulfilling their duties and objectives. It has also been found that some of the officials and church ministers were able to introduce reforms in society and carry out welfare activities. The book has found that reforms also played a key role in establishing peace and order in the colonies while welfare activities carried out by church ministers helped to improve the wellbeing of the residents.
