Thoreau represent every stage in his twenty-two years of active writing. This edition, introduced by writer and historian Howard Zinn, is a microcosm of Thoreaus literary career.

It allows the reader to achieve a full sense of Thoreaus evolution as a writer and thinker. Most famous of these essays is Resistance to Civil Government, better known as Civil Disobedience. Still a standard text in American high schools, it has long inspired nonviolent protest around the world. It influenced those who opposed apartheid in South Africa and motivated international anti-war demonstrators during 1960s and 1970s. Civil Disobedience will surely continue to influence generations of readers for years to come.
