This is an important reference book for public libraries, school and college libraries -- an exceedingly useful and competent survey of books, their production and distribution, from the Colonial Days to the present. There is a vast amount of sound fact, a good deal that stimulates the imagination. Perhaps there was no place for a more dramatic handling of the material, but one can see where this might have been made livelier reading. However, it is a serious study, done in collaboration with Ruth Shepard Granniss and Lawrence C. Wroth -- a work that was needed. - Kirkus Review

"Why Plato Wrote is the first book to be published in the prestigious Blackwell Bristol Lecture Series in Greece, Rome and the Classical Tradition. In this thought-provoking text Danielle Allen eloquently argues that Plato wrote to change Athenian culture and thereby transform Athenian politics. She makes the case that Plato was not only the world's first systematic political philosopher, but also the western world's first think-tank activist and message man. Allen contends that the roles of philosopher and message man were not mutually exclusive, and that Plato's pursuit of language as a vehicle for affecting cultural norms was grounded in his philosophy of language. Why Plato Wrote is a lucid and engaging commentary on Plato's philosophy of language and its relation to his political theory"--
