This two-volume anthology brings together some of the most historically significant writings in American intellectual history. The only collection of its kind, "The American Intellectual Tradition, Fifth Edition", includes classic works in history, politics, social commentary, economics, law literature, and philosophy. Organized chronologically into thematic sections, it traces the evolution of intellectual writing and thinking from its origins in Puritan beliefs to the most recent essays on diversity and post-modernity. A short introduction by the authors precedes each work and both volumes include detailed chronologies and bibliographic material. Offering several new selections, this new edition addresses additional themes, including aesthetics, cultural criticism, Americanism, and race, gender, and sexuality.
