The Education of Henry Adams
Lieferbar innerhalb von 2-3 Tagen
BeschreibungOriginally written for close friends and family The Education of Henry Adams was released to the public only after the death of its author, American historian HENRY BROOKS ADAMS (1838-1918), a member of the Adams political family, Harvard professor of medieval history, and a journalist dedicated to exposing corruption. A reflective chronicle of life as a man crossing eras, Adams details how he saw the world around him change from the 19th century to the 20th. The schooling he had as a child left him wholly unprepared for the newer, faster world. The 20th century was dominated by scientific development, and Adams's education had been grounded in classical literature and history-areas that, he believed, offered no real advantages to modern man. Readers interested in historical periods of transition will find this autobiography a moving and thoughtful way to access the stresses and fears of those who lived through the last great societal shift.
