THE QUAKERS IN THE AMERICAN COLONIES

BY PROFESSOR RUFUS M. JONES, M.A., D.LITT. ASSISTED BY ISAAC SHARPLESS, D.Sc., and AMELIA M. GUMMERE

SATURDAY REVIEW.--" A book which should soon rank as the standard work on the subject. . . . Not only are Mr. Jones's psychology and political insight true, but he has a fine sense of spiritual values and a command of English which enables him to make the inner beauty of Quakerism live. The perspective of his historical picture, too, is correct, because he sees England and his own country without prejudice. The Introduction, in particular, is a notable piece of imaginative analysis. . . . The matter in the book is the result of patient and well-directed research. Moreover, it is arranged so as to reveal every phase of Quakerism in due proportion. Hence the strength and weakness of the movement stand out in clear relief."

GUARDIAN.--" This is one of the most interesting religious histories that we have ever read. . . . Other books have treated the subject definitely from the Quaker point of view, but Professor Jones is the first to undertake it critically and completely. . . . Professor Rufus Jones tells the story with patient accuracy and real insight. The book is full of quaintness and charm."

ATHENÆUM.--" If the 'series' is continued in the spirit of the present instalment it will constitute a history of Quakerism in which the disinterested historical motive and point of view are for the first time predominant."

EVENING STANDARD.--" The page of history here turned for our benefit is one that is little known to the generality of readers. It deserves to be known thoroughly and to be pondered deeply. From our point of view it is a glorious page in our annals, showing the courage and faith and self-sacrifice of the race in their very highest and purest forms. And the portraiture has fallen into the right hands; the history of these lives is handled with perfect sympathy, not a shade of their meaning is lost."

DAILY NEWS.--" Professor Jones's book should take its place at once as the most comprehensive authority on the subject with which he deals."
