Abstract:

"Controversies in politics and religion, customs of family life and society, obligations of labor and chances to play, questions of free will, democracy, the separation of church and state, religious toleration, treatment of Indians---these form the matter of this book. This book adds to what is already known about the Pilgrims in Leiden, but more importantly delves into the customs and life of that time to consider why the Pilgrims made the choices and decisions they did. This book is a must read for Mayflower descendants, Pilgrim history followers, and American history scholars." -- Publisher's description.
