"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

“John Gerber's A Pictorial History of the University of Iowa is a beautiful record of our institution and a historic document. I have personally enjoyed the book over and over again. As an administrator, I have often shared it with visitors to our campus and many people off campus in order to demonstrate the proud legacy of our institution in a dramatic and superbly crafted way. I am delighted that the University of Iowa Press is reissuing and updating this remarkable volume. Through the many new photographs of our campus and of our committed university community, we will continue to be inspired by this wonderful depiction of the University of Iowa's proud achievements.”--David Skorton, president, University of Iowa
“I have had the opportunity and the privilege over the last half century-plus to observe and to be thrilled by the remarkable growth and maturation of the University of Iowa. Now John Gerber's enormously popular A Pictorial History of the University of Iowa has been updated by the addition of fifty carefully selected and precisely captioned color photographs. These photos from the last two decades capture the spirit of the university, its structures, its people, and its triumphs and tragedies. This is a book to savor and to treasure. On Iowa!”--Darrell D. Wyrick, president emeritus, University of Iowa Foundation
“For historians, alumni, students, faculty, and Iowans, this is a book not to be missed. It is a model for future pictorial histories of educational institutions.”--Annals of Iowa --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
