The idea of covenant was at the heart of early New England society. In this singular book David Weir explores the origins and development of covenant thought in America by analyzing the town and church documents written and signed by seventeenth-century New Englanders. Unmatched in the breadth of its scope, this study takes into account all of the surviving covenants in all of the New England colonies. Weir's comprehensive survey of seventeenth-century covenants leads to a more complex picture of early New England than what emerges from looking at only a few famous civil covenants like the Mayflower Compact. His work shows covenant theology being transformed into a covenantal vision for society but also reveals the stress and strains on church-state relationships that eventually led to more secularized colonial governments in eighteenth-century New England. He concludes that New England colonial society was much more "English" and much less "American" than has often been thought, and that the New England colonies substantially mirrored religious and social change in Old England.

In the first ten years of its settlement, the town of Newbury witnessed murders, kidnappings, earthquakes and a plague of caterpillars. The century that followed—marked by religious conflict, Indian uprisings and public scandal— proved no less challenging to the early Puritan community. In 1640, Massachusetts Governor John Winthrop noted, “As people increased, so sin abounded.” But through the turmoil, Newbury’s citizens harnessed the region’s abundant natural resources and developed a thriving community. Author Bethany Groff introduces the compelling personalities that shaped the history of Old Newbury up until 1764, when Newburyport received its independence from the mother town. From the scandalous exploits of Dr. Henry Greenland to the courageous and sacrificing acts of founding families like the Emerys, Dummers and Pikes, A Brief History of Old Newbury provides a captivating glimpse into the verve of this early New England town.

Irgendwo in Massachusetts, nicht weit entfernt von dem berüchtigten Arkham, liegt die einsame Hafenstadt Innsmouth. Ihre Einwohner gelten als sonderbar und verschlossen, und die Leute aus den Nachbarorten meiden nach Möglichkeiten jeden Kontakt zu ihnen. Doch eines Tages verschlägt es einen Fremden nach Innsmouth, und ein grässliches Geheimnis kommt ans Licht ... Das Meisterwerk H. P. Lovecrafts über menschliche Habgier und die Sehnsucht nach Unsterblichkeit in ungekürzter Neuübersetzung, der es erstmals gelingt, Lovecrafts speziellen Stil und die besondere Atmosphäre seiner Erzählung in deutscher Sprache schillern zu lassen. »H. P. Lovecraft ist der bedeutendste Horror-Autor des 20. Jahrhunderts.« Stephen King Unter dem Titel »The Shadow over Innsmouth« erstmals veröffentlicht 1936 in der Visionary Publishing Company. Erstdruck der Übersetzung in»H. P. Lovecraft – Das Werk« (FISCHER Tor, 2017)
