   "Reading Selections",

a review by Carroll Quigley in The Washington Sunday Star, January 21, 1963,

of a book:

MAN IN CONTEMPORARY SOCIETY:

A Source Book Prepared by the Contemporary Civilization Staff of Columbia College of Columbia University

New York: Columbia University Press, 1963

 

"Man in Contemporary Society"

 

MAN IN CONTEMPORARY SOCIETY: 

A Source Book Prepared by the Contemporary Civilization Staff of Columbia College of Columbia University. 

1126 pp. Columbia University Press.  $7.50

 

  This new one-volume edition of reading selections for the famous Columbia University course on Contemporary Western society will never be used for individual reading pleasure, but it would provide an excellent collection for discussion groups who want a single volume of materials. The selections are well chosen, up to date, and long enough to provide material for debate.  A variety of anthropologists, psychologists, sociologists, and others include Carl Rogers on adolescent rebellion, C. Wright Mills on the white-collar class, Myrdal on our negro minority, Niebuhr on moral behavior, Keynes on planning, Ambassador Galbraith on countervailing power and the affluent society, Kautsky, Trotsky, Djilas, and others on communism, and Herman Kahn on thermonuclear war.  The price is very modest for a book of this size and quality.  

--Carroll Quigley
