KIRKUS REVIEW

Do you remember several years ago a Harvard professor wrote his autobiography, and it became a best seller? The book was Bliss Perry's And Gladly Teach (Houghton, Mifflin). Here is another professor's story -- the story of a full life, of a man who has known almost everyone of importance in the political world, a man who made history out of his method of teaching, a man who changed the ""dismal science of economics"" into a science of human relationships. It is an absorbing story, from his own early struggles for an education, his graduate student days in Heidelberg, his successive educational posts -- Johns Hopkins, University of Wisconsin, North-western. He numbered men such as Woodrow Wilson and John Finley among his students. His influence was -- and is -- great. The round table conferences for students and professors was his idea. He has made his life story an exciting history.
