Abstract

Book Reviews 625 historians of science have given to the topic, she lists just three books and four journal articles all published since 1995 in her accompanying endnote, implying a paucity of extant scholarship (p. 236, note 1). Such claims ought not to be taken at face value. Lišková goes on to cite from a “recent” 2002 book (p. 134) and she affiliates Carl Rogers, one of her key historical figures, with a misleadingly identified “Rochester University of New York” [Rogers worked at the University of Rochester from 1935 to 1940] (p. 143). Setting aside these minor quibbles, these two volumes certainly deserve the attention of historians of all adjacent fields, whether they care about broadly conceived patterns of communication and exchange in world history or wish to delve deeply into histories of specific cultures, eras, and disciplines. I recommend both books highly. DAVID I. SPANAGEL Worcester Polytechnic Institute War and its Causes.By JEREMY BLACK.
