Summary
"Breaking new ground in James family studies, James Duban's The Nature of True Virtue explores the pertinence of Jonathan Edwards for the elder Henry and his illustrious sons. In broadest terms, Duban's book is a demonstration of the persistence of Edwardsian thought in American high culture, and specifically in the writings of the James family."--BOOK JACKET
