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"

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.

Thoreau wrote Civil Disobedience in 1849. It argues the superiority of the individual conscience over acquiescence to government. Thoreau was inspired to write in response to slavery and the Mexican-American war. He believed that people could not be made agents of injustice if they were governed by their own consciences.
