Puritan Attitudes towards Recreation in early Seventeenth-Century New England

With particular consideration of physical recreation


Contents: After a critical survey of the extant literature on the problem of Puritan attitudes towards recreation, which unearthed several fallacies of historians, the book discusses the role of recreation in early New England, the Puritan teaching on this issue as well as the legislation, and the attitudes of the leaders and followers of the Puritan movement.
