Pressestimmen"New York Observer" "In "Beyond the Revolution", intellectual historian William Goetzmann reminds us that the most brazen utopian ambition of them all had nothing to do with sex or rapture, but was rather founded in the radical provisions of 'we the people' and those 'certain inalienable rights.'""New York Times Book Review" "[Goetzmann's] strange and valuable book...is richly populated with radicals and utopians who, with one eye on the innermost soul and the other on world history, created a tradition of open-ended experiment."Howard R. Lamar, Sterling Professor Emeritus of History, Yale University ""Beyond the Revolution" is one of the most complete, wide-ranging, readable, and insightful accounts of American intellectuals we have ever had. It deserves to be recognized as a major classic history of American intellectuals to be read by every thinking American.""Virginia Quarterly""An excellent summary of American thought before the Civil War. It is sure to engage readers interested not only in the history of ideas but also in the history of the early nation.""Texas Observer""We now have Goetzmann's life of learning distilled into what may be the capstone of his career to help us understand who we were."
