These thirteen selections from the polemical writings of Henry D. Thoreau represent every stage in his twenty-two years of active writing. This edition, introduced by writer and historian Howard Zinn, is a microcosm of Thoreau's literary career. It allows the reader to achieve a full sense of Thoreau's evolution as a writer and thinker. Most famous of these essays is Resistance to Civil Government, better known as Civil Disobedience. Still a standard text in American high schools, it has long inspired nonviolent protest around the world. It influenced those who opposed apartheid in South Africa and motivated international anti-war demonstrators during 1960s and 1970s. Civil Disobedience will surely continue to influence generations of readers for years to come.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Henry David ThoreauPublisher: Princeton University PressPublished: 06/13/2004ISBN: 9780691118765Pages: 209Weight: 0.53lbsSize: 8.12h x 5.10w x 0.52d
