Anti-Intellectualism in American LifeAnnotationWinner of the 1964 Pulitzer Prize in Non-Fiction
In this award-winning classic work of consensus history, Richard Hofstadter, author of The Age of Reform
, examines the role of social movements in the perception of intellect in American life.
"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 in the Christian Science Monitor Awards
