An examination of the contributors to the Veblen literature in this masterful volume serves to make clear just how vital Veblen was and remains to our cultural landscape. Whether the reader selects from or reads all of the statements by David Riesman, Douglas Dowd, Max Lerner, E. Digby Baltzell, Wesley Claire Mitchell, C. Wright Mills, Daniel Bell, and the other outstanding participants to this Veblen Century, the pulsating vitality of Veblen himself is well captured. Veblen's Century originated as a project initiated in 1974 by Professor Horowitz to reissue the entire corpus of Veblen's writings in new editions with introductions written expressly with this larger purpose of bringing the mast of economic theory to the attention of a new generation. Project took more than a quarter century to complete. The inclusion of contemporary masters who knew Veblen whole, as well as those writing on specific texts enhance the volume.
