Meeting House and Counting House

Meeting House and Counting House

$ 24.00

Using primary sources to document the economic, social, and intellectual life of Friends between 1682 and 1763, tolles has drawn a thoroughly uncompromising picture of what happened to this religious community with the achievement of prosperity, social prestige, and political power. William Penn's 'holy experiment' failed, but Quaker contributions to medicine, government, and education cannot be underestimated, and this chapter of colonial history is of immense importance to a fuller understanding of American character and society. First published in 1963.
