This is one of the most important works by the most important American philosopher: Henry David Thoreau, vital figure in the Transcendentalist movement, hero to environmentalists and ecologists, profound thinker on humanity's happiness. First published in 1854, Walden collects the penetrating reflections from the two years Thoreau lived in solitude on the shores of Massachusetts' Walden Pond. In lucid, poetic prose, Thoreau ponders the beauty of living simply and in communion with nature. It is a work of pastoral magnificence and wisdom that has moved generations of readers. Writer and philosopher HENRY DAVID THOREAU (1817-1862) was born in Concord, Massachusetts, and educated at Harvard University. His writings on human nature, materialism, and the natural world rank him among the most influential thinkers of American literature.

Timothy Snyder traces the emergence of four rival modern nationalist ideologies from common medieval notions of citizenship. He presents the ideological innovations and ethnic cleansings that abetted the spread of modern nationalism but also examines recent statesmanship that has allowed national interests to be channeled toward peace. A work of profound scholarship and considerable importance.--Timothy Garton Ash, St. Antony's College, University of Oxford Timothy Snyder's style is a welcome reminder that history writing can be--indeed, ought to be--a literary pursuit.--Charles King, Times Literary Supplement A brilliant and fascinating analysis of the subtleties, complexities, and paradoxes of the evolution of nations in Eastern Europe. It has major implications for all of us who want to understand the processes of state collapse and nation-building in the world.--Samuel P. Huntington, Harvard Academy for International and Area Studies Snyder's ultimate query in this fresh and stimulating look at the path to nationhood is how the bitter experiences along the way, including the bitterest--ethnic cleansing--are to be overcome.--Robert Legvold, Foreign Affairs

An innovative and beautiful new take on a beloved classic. Though it had only a modest 2,000-copy first printing in 1854 (which took five years to sell out), Walden; or, Life in the Woods is now one of the world's most widely read books, having sold millions of copies. Thoreau's timeless reflections on his two-year sojourn of self-reliance by Walden Pond still inspire us to search for deeper meaning, greater harmony and more serenity in today's fast-paced world. This pocket-size edition draws us even more profoundly into Thoreau's musings: it features highlighted passages to ponder, an introduction that examines the text from a contemporary perspective and reflective writing exercises (with lined pages to write on). These special extras, with Thoreau's provocative words, provide further motivation for cultivating happiness and making positive life changes.

Inspired by Thoreau, Ilgunas set out on a Spartan path to pay off $32,000 in undergraduate student loans by scrubbing toilets and making beds in Coldfoot, Alaska. Determined to graduate debt-free after enrolling in graduate school, he lived in an Econoline van in a campus parking lot, saving—and learning—much about the cost of education today.
