Excellent longer introductions to humanism have been written. Among the best are:
Jim Herrick, Humanism: An Introduction (Amherst, NY: Prometheus Books, 2005).
Richard Norman, On Humanism (London: Routledge, 2004).
Peter Cave, Humanism: A Beginner’s Guide (Oxford: Oneworld, 2009).
Paul Kurtz, What Is Secular Humanism? (Amherst, NY: Prometheus Books, 2006).
I also recommend the BHA’s pamphlet What Is Humanism?, available directly from the BHA.
