About the book:

Professor Walzer offers a provacative analysis of the social roots of Puritanism and in the process mounted a fresh tilt at Max Weber's tattered sails. He has also death the Marxists another swipe for clinging too closely to class determinism. He sees Puritans as intellectuals and literate gentry, as new men who were made new by Puritan ideology. Walzer's study is both bold and clever with suggestive studies he has underlined the fact that Puritanism infected teh whole of a man's life, from imagery to military tactics. Like many before him, the author is trying to recover the impact of Puritanism on personality. His instincts are splendid.
