First published in 1849, “On the Duty of Civil Disobedience” is an essay by American transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau. Within it, he presents the argument that people should not allow governments to supplant their consciences, and that everyone has an important duty to avoid being pawns for injustice. A fascinating and timeless essay, “On the Duty of Civil Disobedience” is highly recommended for modern readers with an interest in civil disobedience, and it is not to be missed by fans and collectors of Thoreau's seminal work. Henry David Thoreau (1817 – 1862) was an American poet, philosopher, essayist, abolitionist, naturalist, development critic, and historian. He was also a leading figure in Transcendentalism, and is best known for his book “Walden”, a treatise on simple living in a natural environment. Other notable works by this author include: “The Landlord” (1843), “Reform and the Reformers” (1846–48), and “Slavery in Massachusetts” (1854). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.

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.

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"

Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) championed the belief that people of conscience were at liberty to follow their own opinions, and he wrote at length on subjects that either supported or explained his (at-the-time) controversial views. In these selections from his writings, we see Thoreau as individualist and opponent of injustice.
