The lives of leading intellectuals--including Rousseau, Shelley, Karl Marx, James Baldwin, and others--are explored in light of the "heartlessness of ideas" that the author finds endemic to much of intellecturalism

HARPERCOLL

A fascinating portrait of the minds that have shaped the modern world. In an intriguing series of case studies, Rousseau, Shelley, Marx, Ibsen, Tolstoy, Hemingway, Bertrand Russell, Brecht, Sartre, Edmund Wilson, Victor Gollancz, Lillian Hellman, Cyril Connolly, Norman Mailer, James Baldwin, Kenneth Tynan, and Noam Chomsky, among others, are revealed as intellectuals both brilliant and contradictory, magnetic and dangerous.
