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 »
Lyman Abbott lived from 1835 to 1922. He was a mature and major force on our national scene from the time of Lincoln’s crusade until after that of Wilson. Lyman Abbott was not a profound man, but he was a righteous one, and his capacity to grow was amazing. Ira Brown discusses Abbott’s full life beginning with his early years as a lawyer; then his prohibitionist and anti-slavery stand; his middle years as a successor to Henry Ward Beecher in Brooklyn’s Plymouth Church; his assumption of the editorship of The Outlook; and finally the two decades of collaboration with Theodore Roosevelt.
