Publisher's Description

Winner of the 1964 Pulitzer Prize in Non-Fiction. This book throws light on many features of the American character. Its concern is not merely to portray the scorners of intellect in American life, but to say something about what the intellectual is, and can be, as a force in a democratic society.

Editorial Reviews

"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
