  • "This Web site is part of a large collection of online texts, with this being the electronic version of On the duty of civil disobedience, by Henry David Thoreau. Come and learn about why Thoreau felt that there will never be a really free and enlightened state until the state comes to recognize the individual as a higher and independent power, from which all its own power and authority are derived, and treats him accordingly."
  • "Present's Henry David Thoreau's 1849 essay in which he urges the public to resist government actions he believes to be unjust."@en
  • "Thoreau advocates for nonviolent protest in his classic manifesto Motivated by his disgust with the US government, Henry David Thoreau's seminal philosophical essay enjoins individuals to stand against the ruling forces that seek to erase their free will. It is the duty of a good citizen, he argues, not only to disobey a bad law, but also to protest an unjust government. His message of nonviolence and appeal to value one's own conscience over political legislation have resonated throughout American and world history. Peppered with the author's poetry and social commentary, Civil Disobedience has become a manifesto for civil dissidents, revolutionaries, and protestors everywhere. Indeed, originally so unpopular with readers that Thoreau was forced to buy back over half of the books from his publisher, this work has gone on to inspire the likes of Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices."@en
  • "Civil Disobedience argues that citizens should not permit their governments to overrule their consciences, and that they have a duty to avoid allowing their acquiescence to enable the government to make them the agents of injustice. Thoreau was motivated in part by his disgust with slavery and the Mexican-American War, but the sentiments he expresses here are just as pertinent today as when they were first written. A true American classic."@en
  • ""Ecrit dans un style lyrique et poétique en 1847, voici le manifeste de la résistance passive à l'Etat, de l'insoumission par rapport aux diktats économiques, de la loi morale supérieure à la loi écrite."
  • ""Thoreau's premise is 'that government is best which governs least.' This essay would later influence Mahatma Gandhi's non-resistance doctrine in India" --Provided by publisher."@en
  • "Originally entitled "Resistance to Civil Government," the classic libertarian essay on self-reliance advocating the active refusal to disobey unjust laws."
  • "Penned by American philosopher and transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau, On the Duty of Civil Disobedience examines the role of the individual's conscience in governmental rule. Thoreau argues that individual citizens must not simply be subject to the decisions of government, but should question every political act to ensure that the system remains a tool for justice and morality'a message that continues to resonate powerfully in modern times. On the Duty of Civil Disobedience, or simply Civil Disobedience, was an important reflection of transcendentalist philosophy which has since come to shape American theories on the role of citizens. Thoreau was a staunch abolitionist, and his writing was informed by the injustices he observed in the American political and social systems of mid-nineteenth century.
