Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0195097270, Paperback)

The third edition of this uniquely comprehensive two-volume anthology contains many of the most significant documents in American intellectual history. It includes new selections from a diverse group of authors that cover Puritan theology, communitarian thought, racial ideology, gender theory, cultural criticism, multiculturalism, and postmodernism. The extensive chronology has been revised and expanded to connect over a thousand important books, essays, and artistic works with events in American and European intellectual, cultural, and political history. Section introductions and headnotes have been rewritten to provide updated bibliographical references and to incorporate new ideas from scholarly literature about the selections. This anthology makes readily available substantial selections from the writings of prominent American thinkers, ranging chronologically from the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1630 to the present. Accessible to a wide range of students, The American Intellectual Tradition is invaluable for courses in intellectual history and serves as an excellent supplementary text for classes in American history, American studies, and American literature.
Volume II now offers new selections by Rexfold G. Tugwell, Clement Greenberg, Lillian Smith, Susan Sontag, Malcolm X, Hannah Arendt, Samuel Huntington, Kwame Anthony Appiah, and Judith Butler; and includes writings of Charles Hodge, Charles Peirce, William Dean Howells, William Graham Sumner, Lester Frank Ward, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Josiah Royce, William James, Henry Adams, George Santayana, William James, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., Thorstein Veblen, W.E.B.
