Reader's note

A heavy read: a first edition collection of Bertrand Russell's first Reith Lectures, Authority and the Individual--a gem among a bounty of out of print rare books and decorative books on our vintage bookstore!

"Seldom has a series of broadcast talks aroused so much interest and comment as did the first Reith Lectures. In choosing Bertrand Russell the BBC gve millions of listeners an unrivalled opportunity of hearing one of the greatest living philosophers, who, with wit and lucidity, examined today's most vital problem--the continual fight between Authority and the Individual. The lectures are concerned with the problem of reconciling public order private initiative. After a psychological discussion of the sources of social and anti-social action, the author sketches briefly the history of the extent and intensity of governmental control, and then examines the role of individuals in the history of art, science, religion and morals.
