Harvard University Press has partnered with De Gruyter to make available for sale worldwide virtually all in-copyright HUP books that had become unavailable since their original publication. The 2,800 titles in the “e-ditions” program can be purchased individually as PDF eBooks or as hardcover reprint (“print-on-demand”) editions via the “Available from De Gruyter” link above. They are also available to institutions in ten separate subject-area packages that reflect the entire spectrum of the Press’s catalog. More about the E-ditions Program »
In form and function, the modern revival movement is as American as chewing gum and baseball. Lectures on Revivals (1853) is, in its own way, as true a product of Jacksonian democracy as John L. O’Sullivan’s editorials or Emerson’s essays. Expressing the new American pragmatic philosophy, the book became a religious classic and a guide for succeeding generations of revivalists. Its author, originally a lawyer, was one of the nation’s most famous revivalists, and later served as President of Oberlin College.
