The Dignity of Man
The Dignity of Man
By Russell W. Davenport
Harper, 1955, 338 pp

In this uncompleted work, which was edited and published after his death in 1954, Mr. Davenport works to meet Marxism's intellectual challenge to our times. Aware of its power and appeal as he is appalled by its effects, he fights hard, if not always clearly and coherently, for a countermovement of the spirit capable of overcoming the "blue haze of fear."
