In this international bestseller, originally published in 1959, Jacques Barzun, acclaimed author of From Dawn to Decadence, takes on the whole intellectual -- or pseudo-intellectual -- world, attacking it for its betrayal of Intellect. Intellect is despised and neglected, Barzun says, yet intellectuals are well paid and riding high. He details this great betrayal in such areas as public administrations, communications, conversation and home life, education, business, and scholarship.

In this edition's new Preface, Jacques Barzun discussess the intense -- and controversial -- reaction the world had to The House of Intellect.
