Portada
Transaction Publishers, 1964 - 939 páginas
Hailed as a pioneer achievement upon its original publi-cation and awarded the Pulitzer Prize in history in 1944, The Growth of American Thought has won appreciative reviews and earned the highest regard among historians of the national experience. With his elaboration of the complex interrelationships between the growth of American thought and the whole American social milieu, Curti creates not only an intellectual history, but a social history of American thought.
