A comprehensive study of Mark Twain's social and political attitudes. The author traces the growth of Twain's political and social convictions and thus shows his relationship to the age in which he lived. The work is based on research in the newspapers of the day, personal letters, and other little-known material, as well as intensive analysis of the most relevant works by Twain. The material is presented in a forthright style that moves at a springy pace.
