The fourth edition of this uniquely comprehensive two-volume anthology has been expanded to connect over a thousand important books, essays, and artistic works with events in American and European intellectual, cultural, and political history. After extensive consultation with instructors who assign these volumes to students, the editors have revised this edition to include more discussions of religion, psychology, social theory, gender, ethnicity, and the role of the United States in the world. Ranging chronologically from the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1630 to the present, The American Intellectual Tradition, 4/e, is invaluable for courses in intellectual history and an excellent supplement for classes in American history, American studies, and American literature.
Volume I now offers new selections from Jonathan Edwards, "Brutus," Judith Sargent Murray, William Ellery Channing, Nathaniel William Taylor, Charles Grandison Finney, William Lloyd Garrison, Orestes Brownson, Martin Delany and Margaret Fuller; and includes writings of John Winthrop, John Cotton, Anne Hutchinson, Roger Williams, Cotton Mather, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, Thomas Paine, Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, Sarah Grimké, George Bancroft, Catharine Beecher, Henry C. Carey, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Elizabeth Palmer Peabody, Margaret Fuller, Henry David Thoreau, Horace Bushnell, Herman Melville, John C. Calhoun, Louisa McCord, George Fitzhugh, Frederick Douglass, and Abraham Lincoln.
