One of Americas most famous writers, and one of the best known Transcendentalists, Henry David Thoreau published a voluminous amount of work in his short career. Thoreau's books, articles, essays, journals, and poetry total over 20 volumes on everything from abolition to ecology and environmentalism, and he lectured frequently against slavery and the Fugitive Slave Laws, including defenses of John Brown. Thoreau's philosophy of civil disobedience influenced the political thoughts and actions of famous leaders like Mahatma Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. His On the Duty of Civil Disobedience is one of the most acclaimed treatises on civil disobedience and protest, and it is still read in American high schools today. This edition of Thoreaus On the Duty of Civil Disobedience includes a table of contents and is illustrated.
