Changing Patterns of Institutions in Colonial Rhode Island

To discover and explain how one English colony in North America, failing to achieve order in two versions of its original plan of institutions, adopted a different approach in the 18th century, creating a pattern of limited government with rationalized lines of authority, providing within this framework place for a wide range of non-governmental institutions, notably private corporations and non-privileged religious societies, as well as extensive freedom for voluntary association.
