I can especially commend The Value of the Humanities to an Irish audience ... [it will] serve both as an inspiration and as a template for authors wishing to take up the challenge of defending research in a broad spread of disciplines from the short-sighted but ultimately ruinous plans of todays utilitarians.
The Value of the Humanities a stimulating, unemotional, closely argued book seeks to shift the debate away from overly negative criticisms of government policies and to adopt a reflective and measured approach to the issues.
a lucid summary of the case for the humanities that avoids the victim complex that is the bane of such discussions.
Helen Small does a good job cheerleading for [the Humanities].
