Product Overview

The nine colleges of colonial America confronted the major political currents of the 17th and 18th centuries, while serving as the primary intellectual institutions for Puritanism and the transition to Enlightenment thought. The colleges also confronted the most partisan and divisive cultural movement of the eighteenth century--the Great Awakening. This is the first book to present a synthetic treatment of the colonial colleges, tracing their role in the intellectual development of early America through the American Revolution. Distinguished historian J. David Hoeveler focuses on Harvard, William and Mary, Yale, the College of New Jersey (Princeton), King''s College (Columbia), the College of Philadelphia (Penn), Queen''s College (Rutgers), the College of Rhode Island (Brown), and Dartmouth.
