Praise for the previous edition
"This is a wonderfully rich collection of primary source readings, intelligently selected and usefully organized. This updated edition is indispensable for undergraduate courses in American intellectual or cultural history, a stimulating supplement to any undergraduate course about the United States, and required reading for graduate students."--Dorothy Ross, Johns Hopkins University
"This sourcebook continues to serve as the cornerstone of my teaching in American thought for undergraduates and graduate students alike. The American Intellectual Tradition provides a comprehensive survey ranging from the Puritan theology to postmodern critical theory. The fourth edition includes updated versions of Hollinger and Capper's superb critical commentaries and comprehensive bibliographies, essays as valuable for specialists trying to keep track of new work in cultural history as for students seeking guidance as they embark on the historical study of ideas."--James T. Kloppenberg, Harvard University
