Summary
"This edition of Thoreau's political essays includes "Civil Disobedience," selections from Walden, "Life Without Principle," and the anti-slavery addresses, such as "Slavery in Massachusetts." In her introduction, Nancy L. Rosenblum places the essays in the context of Thoreau's life of self-examination, and the debates about the abolition of slavery, and she analyzes the themes of citizenship and resistence that have made Thoreau an enduring influence in political philosophy and practice."--Publisher's description
