Editorial Reviews

Previously published essays and reviews (49 in all) by this major social theorist (sociology, U. of Pennsylvania) selected and arranged by editor Jonathan B. Imber in four sections. Part 1 chronicles Reiff's working through of Freud. The second part, on religion and politics, confirms their connection and their importance for understanding the dynamics of culture. Part 3, on intellectuals and education, considers the fate of teaching and learning in a culture distrustful of both. The final part consists of studies in character and culture. Annotation c.
