Overview

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.
