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 »
Edward Bellamy, later famous as the author of Looking Backward, produced in The Duke of Stockbridge (1879) a novel which “gives a more accurate account,” Samuel Eliot Morison said, “of Shays’ Rebellion than any of the formal histories.” Bellamy’s themes of social revolt accompany an affirmation of the American ideals of egalitarianism and the pursuit of happiness. Hitherto, the novel has been available only in a heavily edited version; the present edition, based on the original as it was printed in the Berkshire Courier, offers the first authentic text since its publication.
