A scion of the famous Adams family of American statesmen, historian Henry Adams was more drawn to scholarship than to politics. His well-known autobiographical work--privately printed in 1907 and published posthumously in 1918--reflects his constant search for order and unity in a world he regarded as teetering on the brink of self-destruction. Adams subtitled his work 'A Study of 20th-Century Multiplicity' and cast himself as a modern everyman, seeking coherence in a fragmented universe and concluding that his education was inadequate for the demands of modern society. This Dover reprint will be the least expensive unabridged edition of this landmark in 20th-century American literature. Unabridged republication of a standard edition.
