Review of Metaphysics 45 (4):887-888 (1992)

In this admirable book, the most comprehensive ever written on Dewey, Robert Westbrook provides detailed and sympathetic accounts of Dewey's major works and many minor ones. The book's greatest value, however, lies in Westbrook's account of Dewey's political writing and activity. Drawing on unpublished letters and research on the political and historical contexts within which Dewey worked, Westbrook tells a story, in a pleasingly compelling style, that has been largely hidden from view.
