George Selement is Associate Professor of History at Southwest Missouri State University.

Review:

...admirably exemplifies the buoyancy and drive of current American Puritan studies...caps Professor Selement's numerous contributions to the inquiry into early New England culture.>>>> (McGiffert, Michael)

Selement makes helpful judgments about such disputed topics as Puritan tribalism, attitudes toward death, and popular culture. The book shows that the clergy tried to shape a collective culture; how far they succeeded we still do not know. But Selementtakes us a step closer to knowing.>>>
