Excerpt from History of the Town of Hingham, Massachusetts, Vol. 1 of 3: Part I, Historical The shore-line of the water-front of the town, as distinct from that Of the boundary, is much more extensive, following as it does the numerous indentures of the coast, and embracing the circum ference of the islands. Notice should be taken of the distinction between the boundary and Shore lines, as they comprise the limits between which the marine forms of life appear that may be here after mentioned.

In this revelatory account of the people who founded the New England colonies, historian David D. Hall compares the reforms they enacted with those attempted in England during the period of the English Revolution. Bringing with them a deep fear of arbitrary, unlimited authority, these settlers based their churches on the participation of laypeople and insisted on "consent" as a premise of all civil governance. Puritans also transformed civil and criminal law and the workings of courts with the intention of establishing equity. In this political and social history of the five New England colonies, Hall provides a masterful re-evaluation of the earliest moments of New England's history, revealing the colonists to be the most effective and daring reformers of their day.
