Richard Hofstadter's famous Anti-Intellectualism in American Life, his tenth book, earned him the Pulitzer Prize in Non-Fiction (1964). He argues that, by the mid-twentieth century, anti-intellectualism was pervasive but not dominant in American culture, claiming that "the greater part of the public...has an ingrained distrust of eggheads".

From the Publisher:

"The most comprehensive, succinct, and well-written one-volume treatment of the subject now available."--Walter Laqueur

From the Back Cover:

A book which throws light on many features of the American character. Its concern is not merely to portray the scorners of intellect in American life, but to say something about what the intellectual is, and can be, as a force in a democratic society.
