From the Inside Flap
"In arguing for the centrally moral and ethical value of Thoreau's works, Tauber is taking a brave stance in these slippery postmodern times . It's one thing to praise Thoreau for his opposition to the Mexican War, his philosophy of passive resistance, and his fervent opposition to slavery. It's quite another to argue that his entire projecthis whole sense of identity, self-formation, and his relation to natureis part of a deeply moral enterprise .Thoreau's modernity has been defined in many ways in recent years. Tauber adds another important and distinctive dimension to this discussion."H. Daniel Peck, John Guy Vassar Professor of English, Vassar College
