In 1873, John Stuart Stuart-Glennie elaborated a theory of 'the moral revolution' to characterize the historical shift from roughly 600 BCE in a variety of civilizations, as part of a critical theory of history. This book brings light to the now eclipsed theory and offers new contexts and understandings of the phenomenon.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Halton has creatively introduced a new voice into the current pursuit of the 'axial age,' so thoroughly that readers who will never see Stuart-Glennie's rare books leave Halton's analysis with a clear understanding of what until now has been missing from the record. Intellectual historians are always on the look-out for fresh, previously overlooked material to reanimate. Halton has thus resurrected Stuart-Glennie with dedication and skill."

- Alan Sica, Professor of Sociology, Pennsylvania State University, USA.
