The Humboldt Current
Category: History: U.S.: 19th Century
Author: Aaron Sachs
Copyright/published Year: 2006 by Viking
The naturalist and explorer Alexander von Humboldt (1769-1859)
achieved unparalleled fame in his own time, particularly in the
U.S. Today, however, he and his enormous legacy to American
thought are virtually unknown. In The Humboldt Current,
Aaron Sachs seeks to reverse this undeserved obscurity by tracing
Humboldt's pervasive influence on American history, specifically
looking at the lives and careers of several nineteenth-century
explorers who used Humboldt's notion of "unity in diversity" and
his open-hearted spirit of exploration to develop a critique of
their increasingly industrialized society.
This book is 'remaindered' and may have marks on the cover and/or bottom of pages.
