"...this book should be read by anyone interested in the history--present and future--of the social sciences generally. It exemplifies new maturity and sophistication in the telling and mining of the discipline's own checkered history. Furthering the promise of a reasoned discourse about the social sciences in America, it reflects the many dilemmas inherent in contemporary social and political inquiry."
