Most widely held works by John L Thomas
Alternative America : Henry George, Edward Bellamy, Henry Demarest Lloyd, and the adversary tradition by John L Thomas( Book )
4 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 913 libraries worldwide
Looking backward from 2000 to 1887 by Edward Bellamy( Book )
20 editions published between 1967 and 1978 in English and held by 895 libraries worldwide
This is the America to which Julian West, a young Bostonian, awakens after more than a century of sleep. West's initial sense of wonder, his gradual acceptance of the new order and a new love, and Bellamy's wonderful prophetic inventions--electric lighting, shopping malls, credit cards, electronic broadcasting--ensured the mass popularity of this 1888 novel. But however rich in fantasy and romance, Looking Backward is a passionate attack on the social ills of nineteenth-century industrialism and a plea for social reform and moral renewal
A country in the mind : Wallace Stegner, Bernard De Voto, history, and the American land by John L Thomas( Book )
12 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and held by 594 libraries worldwide
"John L. Thomas details an intimate portrait of the intellectual friendship between two commanding figures of western letters and the early environmental movement - Wallace Stegner and Bernard DeVoto." "Drawing on their writings, personal correspondence, and dozens of articles from the pages of Harper's, where DeVoto was a columnist for years, Thomas places the two men in a vibrant American tradition, supporters of a national commons owned and cared for by all its citizens. The popular works of Wallace Stegner and Bernard DeVoto remain in print decades after they were first published, and, as Thomas makes clear in this illuminating account, their concern for the western environment continues to resonate today."--BOOK JACKET
