Reviews - What do customers think about The Founding of New England?
Good handbook on government in Revolutionary New England Jan 16, 2004
This excellent almost 80 year old book is about the founding of New England from the first settles in Plymouth to around 1692. It is the first colume of a 3 part series which also includes 'Revolutionary New England' and 'New England in the Republic'. It deals mostly with the different forms of government that have existed in this period, from the Puritan town meetings, through the charters, oligarchies, theocracies, back under direct English control and the forming of the states. Between it the different wars against the Indians and the French are mentioned. It is very good in desribing how different people have played important roles.
I have not read volumes 2 and 3 yet but will definitely look for them. it is a good read for people who want to know more about the governmental processes in pre-Revolutionary America.
