Book Summary

Thoreau was motivated in part by his disgust with slavery and the Mexican-American War.

Book Opinions

  • Civil Disobedience

    By bryand.vinci
    Always a promisingly good read. Definitely interesting to see where our country came from politically and how we progressed. Introduced interesting values and ideals. I agree mankind should be self governed and have hopes one day we can achieve this goal.

  • Terrible

    By Jordan 3456
    Worst book ever 10/10
  • Exposition on the relationship of Government and The Citizen

    By Craig Gorsuch
    A quick read that elegantly shows American Government is supposed to SERVE The People, and a reminder that all political power flows FROM The People. A bit anarchistic at times, but the principals hold up in contemporary society.
  • A must read!

    By Chrisvpeace
    In hard times, a reading like this one can influence an individual greatly and "civil disobedience"is one of many of Henry's profound essays. Also iBooks is amazing, thank you.
