UNC Press Books, 1 sty 2014 - 338
Winthrop's ideals were quite different from those generally ascribed to him, and the reality in New England was quite different from the ideals. The broad purpose of this analytical and interpretive study is to establish a Winthropian ideal and assess the difference between the ideal and the reality that evolved. It traces Boston's evolution from a community to a viable society.
