KIRKUS REVIEW

This fits right in with Bernard Smith's The Democratic Spirit, for here are the forerunners of the ideal of democracy, -- the Greek and Roman philosophers, the prophets of the Old Testament, the founders of the Christian church, of successive systems of philosophy, a few epic documents -- 400 pages of evidence, from the prophet Samuel to John Dewey. Valuable reference material, but no more stimulating reading than Mr. Edman himself in his introduction which charts the course.
