The American Intellectual Tradition has long been the only documents reader available in American intellectual history. Organized chronologically from the 1630 Massachusetts Bay Colony to the present, and with clear iintrodcutions and headlines, the 2-volume set makes the writing of many prominent American thinkers accessible to today's college students. This fourth edition represents the most thorough revision of the book to date. A total of twenty-one new documents are included, covering such as theology, cultural thought, psychology, and race-class-gender theory as these subjects appeared in the major discourses of their time. Also, many of the introductions have been substantially rewritten, while all headnotes and recommended reading lists have been completely updated. The American Intellectual Tradition is invaluable for courses in American intellectual history, and can also be used profitably as a supplement for classes in American history, American studies, and American literature. In Volume I, new selections by the following authors are included: Jonathon Edwards, "Brutus," Judith Sargent Murray, William Ellery Channing, Nathaniel William Taylor, William Llyod Garrison, Orestes Brownson, Margaret Fuller, and Martin Delaney.
