"The most comprehensive, succinct, and well-written one-volume treatment of the subject now available."--Walter Laqueur "As Mr. Hofstadter unfolds the fascinating story, it is no crude battle of eggheads and fatheads. It is a rich, complex, shifting picture of the life of the mind in a society dominated by the ideal of practical success." --Robert Peel, Christian Science Monitor "The most comprehensive, succinct, and well-written one-volume treatment of the subject now available."--Walter Laqueur
