Summary This book takes a fresh look at the controversy surrounding the publication of the Book of Sports and the cultural battle over the tension between Sunday observance and traditional revelry in pre civil war England. Its author shows how a new form of sabbatarianism became the hallmark of radical Protestants who sought to impose their beliefs on society and to suppress all Sunday recreations.--Publisher
