About this book

This book explores the Society of Friend's Atlantic presence through its creation and use of networks, including intellectual and theological exchange, and through the movement of people.

Reviews

“Jordan Landes’s London Quakers in the Trans-Atlantic World: the creation of an early modern community provides essential background for any historian initiating research on seventeenth-century Quakerism. In thoroughly researched and detailed thematic chapters, Landes provides overviews of the Quakers’ institutional structures, communications networks, approach to politics and commerce, their book trade, migration patterns across the Atlantic and their perception of imperial expansion.” (Geoffrey Plank, Quaker Studies, Vol. 21 (1), 2016)
