The Professor and the Fossil : Some observations on Aronald J. Toynbee's A Study of History

by Samuel, Maurice

Condition: Very Good in Good dust jacket


New York: Alfred A. Knopf. Very Good in Good dust jacket. 1956. Hardcover. Black cloth, VG+ with bumped corners. Clean, straight copy. Dust jacket heavily worn; in clear removable cover. Pages: vi, [5] 4-268, ix-index, [1] colophon. From the flap: It is Mr. Samuel's closely and vigourously argued contention that A Study of History misjudges and misrepresents the Jews in history, in culture, and in contemporary life. The result is a lively, illuminating, and discussion-provoking book. "His (Samuel's) book, while inevitably falling into the pitfall of imbalance, is a powerful document, and one that deserves close study." Kirkus review. ; 8vo .
