The Bloomsbury Encyclopedia of the American Enlightenment

The August update on Oxford Reference Library adds the first edition of The Bloomsbury Encyclopedia of the American Enlightenment, now available through institutional title-by-title perpetual access.





The Bloomsbury Encyclopedia of the American Enlightenment is the first reference work on this key subject in early American history. With substantial and original essays on key American Enlightenment figures, including Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, David Rittenhouse, Benjamin Rush, Jonathan Edwards and many others, it provides a comprehensive account to complement the intense scholarly activity that has recently centered on the European Enlightenment. This wide-ranging collection also includes topical essays, and entries on dozens of often-overlooked secondary figures.

The Encyclopedia contains 500 entries across two volumes.
