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 »
The famous minister of the Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church in New York City here presents an eloquent study of the message for the modern world from three “prophets of yesterday”—Thomas Carlyle, the representative of the Hebraic tendency in English thought which stands for the sway of conscience; Matthew Arnold, the exponent of the Hellenic influence which stresses the balance of liberty and law and which pleads for beauty and ideals in their own right; and Robert Browning, the supreme reconciler for the English people of their Hebrew with their Greek inheritance, the representative of that synthesis of conscience and desire under which we live to-day.
