Format: Paperback
Even though I do not agree with this philosopher's stand on war and socialism; nevertheless, as a free thinking individual, I appreciate Mr. Russell's genius and sharp wit. This 336 page tome covers a wide range of material with detailed comments on numerous topics. This book is organized in such a way that makes it a great read. Just look up the topic and it gives you the page number of the quote. This book has taken the comments and quotations from a wide variety of Russell's writings. Some of the topics include: Aggression, America, Anarchy. Anti-Semitism, Artistotle, Asia, belief, religion, books, courage, death, democracy, economics, and numerous other topics. This short review cannot do justice to this very interesting and informative book.

In conclusion, This book is for anyone who has an intellectual curiousity.

Rating: 5 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Never Trust a Politician).

4 of 19 people found the following review helpful By Dmitry Matveyev on October 12, 2000
Format: Paperback
Anti-catholic, pro-jewish, and maybe the most important brain of our corrupt, insane, and bygone 20th century, Russell speaks for a generation that is starting to realize certain inviolable truths vital to the continuation of mankind. Doomed as we are, cynical as I am, and one-hundred per cent correct Russell is when stating human nature is actually corrigible. For when this aspect is fixed, and humans will no longer emulate quasi-virus patterns and replicate wars over and over, only then can Russell be judged as right or wrong regarding the fate of man. What is peace? What is war? What is knowledge? I consider Russell the king of intellectual snobs.
