Rethinking Uncle Tom : The Political Thought of Harriet Beecher Stowe Paperback / softback
Rethinking Uncle Tom thoroughly explains Uncle Tom's Cabin as an articulation of the conditions of democratic life and the nature of modern humanism.
The most mature elements of Stowe's political thought emerge from a close reading of Sunny Memories and of Oldtown Folks.
This book develops familiarity with the moral discourse of abolition and nineteenth-century reformism, and it offers a glimpse of an America envisioned as producing a nobility of soul represented in the human model of surpassing excellence.
