“To anyone who has spent time on the inside, as they say, The Marketplace of Ideas
is alternately bracing and chilling.... As ever, Menand writes like an angel, with the wry élan that made his previous book, The Metaphysical Club
, such a winning exploration of the history of ideas.” (Kirk Davis Swinehart - Chicago Tribune)
