A companion to American thoughtUser Review - Book Verdict
Edited by two leading intellectual history scholars, this work makes an original contribution to studies in American religion, history, literature, philosophy, politics, social work, and related areas from the Colonial period through modern times. Over 300 scholars contribute 363 subject essays and 316 short entries on leading figures in American thought, all linked through cross references and a detailed subject index. Topics including abortion, democracy, education, republicanism, tradition, women's rights, and youth feature individuals from Benjamin Franklin to Susan Sontag. All entries include brief bibliographies that illustrate the use of recent scholarship. A useful introductory essay by the editors place the dictionary in line with scholars attempting to cultivate a body of common knowledge while providing a forum for debating new ideas. The work also presents some of the last essays by scholar and social critic Christopher Lasch, who died in 1994. Scholars, students, and lay readers will find this work valuable as a reference, introduction for research, or browsing tool. One of the most important reference works issued this year; recommended for all libraries.--Stephen L. Hupp, Capital Univ. Lib., Columbus, Ohio
