New York Intellect is Thomas Bender's remarkable look at the connections between the life of a city and the life of the mind. New York has never been comfortable or convenient as a milieu for art and intellect, Bender notes. Yet New Yorkers have always struggled to create institutions and styles of thought and writing that reflect the special character of the city, its boundless energies and deep divisions.

Baker & Taylor
Focuses on the changing definitions of intellectual life in New York City, discussing how the aspirations for the European pattern of intellectual life and the historical and sociological conditions of the city produced a distinctive cultural formation
