Description
 
This edition of Gary Nash’s classic study of society & politics in early Quaker Pennsylvania features an a new preface that incorporates the author’s reflections on recent scholarship. In this comprehensive, authoritative, & well written account, Nash shows that the strong Quaker tradition of antiauthoritarianism engendered a negative attitude toward political control, whether exercised by the proprietor, upper-class Quakers, or by imperial agents. A brilliant investigation of the first half century of William Penn’s ‘holy experiment’, in which Nash’s concern is to explore the connections between the structure of society & the nature of politics. “He writes political history that is meaningfully intertwined with economic & social developments.”
