Description:

Award-wining historian Edmund Morgan relates the hardships and triumphs of the Puritan movement through this vivid account of its most influential leader, John Winthrop. This indispensable text follows Winthrop from when he caught the fever of Puritanism in England to the dilemma that still lingers in the air of Democracy today: what responsibility does a religious person owe to society?
