Reviews

“Institutions of higher learning depend upon expertise in
specialized fields and thus it is rare to find a scholar whose
curiosity is so broad, whose tastes are so catholic, whose depth of knowledge permits him to follow his interests as they come. The present volume is, to borrow a phrase from Eliot, a kind
of ‘reticent autobiography’ of a large and generous mind.”
