Thoreau was deeply concerned about injustices he witnessed during his life.

A thought provoking and influential work in its time On the Duty of Civil Disobedience it is perhaps more relevant for our day and is a must read for anyone interested in the welfare of our country.

In this collection of essays, Michael Walzer discusses how obligations are incurred, sustained, and (sometimes) abandoned by citizens of the modern state and members of political parties and movements as they respond to and participate in the most crucial and controversial aspects of citizenship: resistance, dissent, civil disobedience, war, and revolution. Walzer approaches these issues with insight and historical perspective, exhibiting an extraordinary understanding for rebels, radicals, and rational revolutionaries. The reader will not always agree with Walzer but he cannot help being stimulated, excited, challenged, and moved to thoughtful analysis.

Completed in April 1918, "in the last days before a period of imprisonment," 'The Proposed Roads to Freedom' contains Bertrand Russell's astute political commentary on anarchism, socialism, and syndicalism. Russell begins with a historical overview of socialism and anarchism, the teachings and organizations of Marx and Bakunin, and the syndicalist revolt against socialism. He then turns to more pressing problems of the future, and how these movements could contribute to reconstruction after the war. Although he has criticism for each movement, Russell respected what they attempted to achieve. "What is new in Socialism and Anarchism is that close relations of the ideal to the present sufferings of men, which has enabled powerful political movements to grow out of the hopes of solitary thinkers. It is this that makes Socialism and Anarchism important, and it is this that makes them dangerous to those who batten, consciously or unconsciously, upon the evils of our present order of society." Bertrand Russell (1872-1970) was a mathematician, philosopher, pacifist, and winner of the 1950 Nobel Prize for literature. As a president of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, he opposed war and nuclear weapons and also advocated world government and peacemaking. The Bertrand Russell Peace Foundation was created in 1963 and it publishes a journal, 'The Spokesman'.

Walden, written by Henry David Thoreau, was first published in 1854. Walden details Thoreau's experiences over the course of two years, two months, and two days in a cabin he built near Walden Pond, amidst nature & ecology, lakes & ponds, and woodland owned by his friend and mentor Ralph Waldo Emerson, near Concord, Massachusetts. The book compresses the time into a single calendar year and uses passages of four seasons to symbolize human development. Henry David Thoreau reflects upon simple living in natual surroundings. The work is part personal declaration of independence, social experiment, voyage of spiritual discovery, satire, and to some degree, a manual for self reliance. Civil Disobedience also written by Henry David Thoreau is an essay that was first published in 1849. While Henry David Thoreau was considered a transcendentalist, his work of writings encompasses social sciences, political science, civil rights, and humanities. In Civil Disobedience, Henry David Thoreau argues that individuals should not permit governments to overrule their consciences, and that they have a duty to avoid allowing such acquiescence to enable the government to make them the agents of injustice. Henry David Thoreau's motivation to pen the Civil Disobedience essay was in part due to his disgust with slavery and the Mexican-American War. As noted, Civil Disobedience is studied in social sciences, political science, civil rights, and humanities, yet while only an essay, Civil Disobedience is often textbook required reading. In addition to Walden and Civil Disobedience, this anthology volume also contains four additional popular essays by Henry David Thoreau which are: Life Without Principle, Slavery In Massachusetts, A Plea for Captain John Brown, and Walking.

Time is but the stream I go a-fishing in. I drink at it; but while I drink I see the sandy bottom and detect how shallow it is. Its thin current slides away, but eternity remains. I would drink deeper; fish in the sky, whose bottom is pebbly with stars.Henry David ThoreauThis edition covers fifteen sections of Henry David Thoreau's well-known Walden and includes several of his early essays from his journals, as well as A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers, "Economy," "Where I Lived, and What I Lived For," "Solitude," "Higher Laws," "Reading," "Life Without Principle," "Friendship," "Love," "Early Essays," "Sadi," "Autumnal Tints," "Style in Writing," and "Walking." The second part of the text is "Civil Disobedience." Thoreau requires no introduction. His writings have been prized for more than a hundred fifty years. He lived life simple and fully. In this simplicity, he describes the true meaning of contentment, and to the reader, his prescription of "simplify, simplify" is echoed throughout his writings.I must add the cardinal fact, that there was an excellent wisdom in him (Thoreau), proper to a rare class of men, which showed the material world as a means and symbol.- Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1862Thoreau speaks to us in strikingly modern voice and on topics that are even more timely today than they were a century ago.- Charles AndersonAuthor of Thoreau's Vision"
