"James lived long enough, surrounded by intellectuals of all kinds, to have earned many discriptive vignettes of his character. Tributes justifiably dwell upon his attractive personality, almost Victorian characterfulness, shrewd wit, and political generosity. And yet James the private man has seemed walled off from James the strategic and cultural intellectual" (from p.1).
