I really wanted to read this book, but the scanning of it was so poor that after just a few pages I was really getting tired of trying to interpret all the scan errors. Doesn't anybody review the OCR scan results before putting a book out to thr public. Try again.

This is NOT the Richard Hofstadter book "Anti-intellectualism in American Life." I'm not sure what the heck it is, since it appears to be mostly in Latin. But it's mislabeled either way.

The book downloaded was published about 80 earlier than the Hofstadter book. Why?
