Review Text

  • By A customer on August 30, 1999

    Bertolini uses the driest of styles to discuss a rather basic theory of American individualism through some fictional works. In the end, his ideas, which are based on the work of other scholars, fail to yield any real insight.

  • By A customer on May 9, 1999

    Bertolini has an interesting thesis about the manifestation of American individualism in four of the greatest American novels (The Scarlet Letter, Moby Dick, Huckleberry Finn and The Great Gatsby) and the nuances of Hobbesian-Lockean philosophy in the context of modern political policy. A thesis worth exploring to be sure, but fairly specific to academics in the discplines of philosophy, politics and literature.

    I found the book very informative. Not having read many political or literary works ( I had read a little Hobbes and Locke, but none of the novels dealt with), I found almost every page interesting and filled with new ideas. I look at America in a different way now than I did prior to reading this book.

    As a student of Dr. B, as we all call him, I held his ideas in high esteem. His view of political science, is a bit different than mine, but his arguements are well made. If this was used in softer language, political science majors would be able to stay up all night, and whats the fun in that. Buy Dr. B's book, he could use the money to update his wardrobe
