Henry Adams & the Need to Know


The essays found here deal with Adams’s reactions to this situation, his relationship with people and ideas, and his belief in the need for knowledge.

Adams's work appeals to a wide spectrum of historical and literary inquiry and claims a place in multiple scholarly contexts. The topics covered in this volume range from international politics (of Adams's age and ours) to portraiture, from orientalism and travel literature to the disintegration of the human mind.
