The Quaker Experiment in Government
by Issac Sharpless

An enjoyable, sympathetic history of the Quakers in Pennsylvania from William Penn to the 1780s. The Quakers were more often in the right than not, but their moralizing was tedious. Overall they were more honest and respectable than other sects.

Year Read: 1977
