Book Description:

"One of the best--and most provocative--books written on colonial Anglo-America over the past decade, it must be the starting point for all further work on the subject. Equally important, [Isaac's] efforts to demonstrate how historians can profitably employ some of the tools of symbolic anthropologists . . . deserve close inspection."-- Times Literary Supplement

From the Inside Flap:

Winner of the 1983 Pulitzer Prize in History, this book recreates and analyzes the dramatic political and religious confrontations that transformed Virginia in the second half of the eighteenth-century. (Please see cloth edition published 5/82.)
