Puritans and Yankees; the Winthrop dynasty of New England, 1630-1717 by Richard S Dunn( Book )

20 editions published between 1960 and 2015 in English and held by 1,129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Governor John Winthrop established the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1630, he commenced a tradition of public service in which his family would participate for almost a century. His son, John, Jr., and his grandsons, Fitz John and Wait Still, were deeply involved in the colonial government of New England, although their motives were increasingly mixed with private interest. Mr. Dunn's portrayal of this important and interesting family illuminates the two most fundamental themes in early New England history: the gradual secularization of the New England conscience, and the continuous struggle to preserve local customs and privileges within an increasingly centralized English imperial system. Originally published in 1962. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905
The age of religious wars, 1559-1689 by Richard S Dunn( Book )

16 editions published between 1970 and 1971 in English and held by 1,113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the years covered in this volume, Europe experienced a tumultuous period of civil wars and rebellions. Although each upheaval had its distinct character, a common thread running through the age was strife between adherents of the Catholic and Protestant churches. From the day in 1517 that Martin Luther had posted his ninety-five theses, religion became embroiled in politics. But the period of greatest militancy on both sides--of crusaders and martyrs, of plots and assassinations, of mobs and armies--began some forty years after Luther ignited the fuse of religious controversy. There was more to this age than warfare. A new centralization of political and economic power arose within the states of Europe, fostered by the rise of absolutist political theory and the spread of the mercantilist doctrine. Among the great rulers of the age were Phillip II of Spain; Queen Elizabeth I in England; and toward the end of the period, the Sun King, Louis XIV of France. During their reigns, Europe experienced a golden age of intellectual achievement: a great scientific revolution generated by the work of Galileo, Descartes, and Newton; a burst of creativity in painting, sculpture, and architecture known to us as the Baroque; and an era of the drama that has never been excelled--the era of Shakespeare, Molière, Lope de Vega, and their contemporaries. Richard S. Dunn has fashioned a fascinating historical panorama out of this rich and complex period of modern European history."--Dust jacket

The journal of John Winthrop, 1630-1649 by John Winthrop( Book )

18 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 703 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This abridged edition of Winthrop's journal, which incorporates about 40 percent of the governor's text, with his spelling and punctuation modernized, includes a lively Introduction and complete annotation. It also includes Winthrop's famous lay sermon, "A Model of Christian Charity," written in 1630. As in the fuller journal, this abridged edition contains the drama of Winthrop's life - his defeat at the hands of the freemen for governor, the banishment and flight of Roger Williams to Rhode Island, the Pequot War that exterminated his Indian opponents, and the Antinomian controversy. Here is the earliest American document on the perpetual contest between the forces of good and evil in the wilderness - Winthrop's recounting of how God's Chosen People escaped from captivity into the promised land. While he recorded all the sexual scandal - rape, fornication, adultery, sodomy, and buggery - it was only to show that even in Godly New England the Devil was continually at work, and man must be forever militant

A tale of two plantations : slave life and labor in Jamaica and Virginia by Richard S Dunn( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book reconstructs the individual lives and collective experiences of some 2,000 slaves on two plantations--Mesopotamia sugar estate in western Jamaica and Mount Airy Plantation in tidewater Virginia--during the final three generations of slavery in Jamaica and the USA. It also compares Mesopotamia with Mount Airy to demonstrate the differences between slave life in the British West Indies and slave life in the Antebellum US South. The chief difference was demographic. Mesopotamia had a continually shrinking slave population, with many more deaths than births, which was standard throughout the British Caribbean. Mount Airy had a continually expanding slave population, with many more births than deaths, which was standard throughout the Old South. At Mesopotamia the slaveholders imported their laborers from Africa, worked them to death and replaced them with new Africans, so that family life was perpetually stunted. At Mount Airy, where the slaves were all American-born, the slaveholders sold their surplus people or moved them to distant work sites, so that families were routinely broken up. On both plantations numerous individual slaves are observed in action, a mix of leaders and followers, rebels and conformists. A principal theme is slave motherhood and intergenerational family formation; another is the impact of field labor upon health and longevity. The Mesopotamia people engaged with Moravian missionaries and responded to two major Jamaican slave rebellions, while 218 of the Mount Airy people migrated to Alabama as cotton hands. The book concludes with emancipation in Jamaica and the USA. Never before have two slave communities from differing regions in America been portrayed over a long time period in such full detail"--
