A Secondary Bibliography of A History of Western Philosophy, Part I: Extracted Reviews in English. Introduction by John G. Slater
Extracts from the more academic reviews in English follow. They are representative of the totality rather than of individual reviews. Those in the popular press indicate Russell’s high reputation in the mid-1940s but little else. Excluded are blurbs from the Allen & Unwin dustjacket, and there were none on the Simon and Schuster jacket. Copies of all but one of these 132 reviews are in box 1.65 of the Bertrand Russell Archives; they are also preserved in the Russell Archives as PDFs.
