Upon its publication, George Seldes'sThe Great Thoughtsinstantly took its place as a classic--a treasure house of the seminal ideas that have shaped the intellectual history of the world down through the ages.  Seldes, a pivotal figure in the history of American journalism and a tireless researcher, spent the better part of his extraordinary lifetime compiling the thoughts that rule the world, casting his net widely and wisely through the essential works of philosophy, poetry, psychology, economics, politics, memoirs, and letters from the ancient Greeks to the modern Americans. Now Seldes's splendid and important work has been revised and updated to include the great thoughts that have changed our world in the decade since the book's first appearance.  Quotations from leaders as varied as Nelson Mandela, Lech Walesa, Yitzak Rabin, Newt Gingrich, and Jesse Jackson reflect the radical shifts in the world political scene.  Toni Morrison and Cornel West speak out on the enduring vitality of African-American culture.  Alvin Toffler and Arthur C. Clarke give us a glimpse into the future.  Gloria Steinem and Monique Wittig define the motives and the goals of late twentieth-century feminism.  Rachel Carson, Aldo Leopold, and Wallace Stegner ponder the meaning of wilderness in an increasingly populated and industrialized world.  These and scores of other thinkers in all major disciplines have added their voices to this new edition ofThe Great Thoughts. USA Todaypraised the first edition ofThe Great Thoughtsas "a browser's delight."  The work of a lifetime, brought up-to-date to reflect the global upheaval of the past decade,The Great Thoughtsstands alone as an enduring achievement and an invaluable resource.
