This chapter explores the social interaction between Quakers and the world. There was a greater degree of cooperation between the early Quakers and their contemporaries than has hitherto been appreciated. To accept that relations between Quakers and the world were not universally hostile and were conducted at times in a spirit of moderation is not to suppose that they were uniformly rosy. Religious belief had a direct and practical effect in social relations between Quakers and the world.
