Summary

Summary

Examines the life of the American Samuel Johnson, the first president of King's College, forerunner of Columbia College. In tracing Johnson's long career from his Puritan origins through his remarkable conversion to the Church of England, the author introduces the theories of psychohistory, an approach that is concerned with both individual psychology and more general cultural patterns.
