Illuminates the connections between key members of the Transcendentalist circle -- including James Freeman Clarke, Elizabeth Peabody, Caroline Healey Dall, Elizabeth Stanton, Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Theodore Parker, and Margaret Fuller -- who created a community dedicated to radical social activism. As a group biography that broadens the familiar cast of characters associated with this movement, it conclusively demonstrates that Boston, not Concord, was their base, and it shows us how these authors and activists laid the groundwork for democratic and progressive religion in America.
