These are the best known works of Henry Adams, one of the most powerful and original minds to confront the American scene from the Civil War to the First World War. Now brought together for the first time in a single convenient volume, these works show the many forms - fiction, poetry, philosophical and historical speculation, autobiography - in which Adams gave expression to his vision of the meaning of the unsettling changes in American life and values.
