Synopsis

For over four centuries, "Puritan" has been a synonym for dour, joyless, and repressed. In the tenth anniversary edition of Puritans at Play, Bruce Daniels reappraises the accuracy of this grim portrait by examining leisure and recreation in Colonial and Revolutionary New England. Chapters on music, dinner parties, dancing, sex, alcohol, taverns, and sports are presented in a lively style that makes this book as entertaining as it is illuminating.

Bruce C. Daniels, Professor of History at Texas Tech University, is a specialist on colonial and Revolutionary New England and on international views of American history. He is a past president of the Canadian Association for American Studies and in the spring of 2005 was the Nikolai Sivachev Distinguished Fulbright Chair at Moscow State University
