New Thought: Its History and Principles (The Message of the New Thought) is a classic work by William Walker Atkinson that explains how the origins of the New Thought movement, the uniquely American spiritual philosophy that developed at the turn of the 20th century, can be found in the oldest philosophical systems of humanity, and in the revival of Transcendentalism which occurred in America about 1800 to 1825. The text of this new edition has been edited into gender neutral language in recognition of the author's desire to bring the insights of New Thought to all people. Gender neutral language is a subtle but important way to promote equality, and equality is at the core of Atkinson's thinking.  This new, gender neutral edition brings Atkinson's insights to a new generation of readers in need of his timeless insights, and includes a new Introduction.  It also includes the author's "Working Creed", a summary of both his personal beliefs and the New Thought system in general.

William Walker Atkinson (1862-1932) was a lawyer, businessman, publisher, and prolific author writing under his own name and various pen names.  After suffering a mental and physical breakdown, and financial disaster, he found renewal in the New Thought movement.  Atkinson regained his mental and physical health as well as his material prosperity after embracing this life-changing philosophy. William Walker Atkinson contributed immeasurably to the development of New Thought through his many books and articles and other activities.

William F. Shannon is the Publisher and Editor of Hudson Mohawk Press.  He holds a Master of Arts in Integrated Studies/Cultural Studies from Athabasca University in Canada.
