Editorial Reviews

Review

"An intellectual joining of Sacvan Bercovitch's "Puritan Origins of the American Self and Michel Foucault's "History of Sex....[F]amiliar and unfamiliar figures, historical and modern, are revealed in a new light....."
-"Religious Studies Review, January 2002
"For those who imagine there is nothing more to say about the vexed relations between Puritanism and American sexuality, this richly inflected, shrewdly edited collection of essays holds many surprises. Treating the entire history of their associations, it adds a new chapter to our understanding of religion and the body in America."
-Giles Gunn, University of California, Santa Barbara
..."nuanced, historically informed readings of Puritan discourses and their afterlives in later cultural texts."
-Glenn Hendler, University of Notre Dame, in the "Journal of Religion

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is not all prurient; rather, it shows how strongly the Puritan theocracy has influenced our nation--and still does. Perhaps, sans the Puritans, we would have been as cavalier about Bill Clinton's escapades as the French would have been.
