Thoreau's political writing is intensely personal and direct. Both his life and work focus uncompromisingly on the question how should I live?. This edition of Thoreau's political essays includes Civil Disobedience, selections from Walden, and the anti-slavery addresses. In her introduction, Nancy L. Rosenblum places the essays in the context of Thoreau's life of self-examination, and analyzes the themes of citizenship and resistance that have made Thoreau an enduring influence in political philosophy and practice.
