+1 for Charles Coulombe's Puritan Empire, it should be mandatory reading for all American Catholics and a very good read for any Catholic with an interest in American history.
My only gripe about my edition is the poor editing. I am hardly a grammar pro, but even I found the numerous spelling/grammar mistakes somewhat distracting. With that said, I still recommend the book, it has I think, been published in a new edition.
I also have listened to most of those Coulombe/Biersach talks, they are very entertaining, check them out.
