Gerhart Niemeyer, who taught government at the University of Notre Dame for several decades, was one of the foremost conservative political theorists of the twentieth century. He was the author of seminal books and articles exploring the nature of Communist ideology, classical and modern political theory, foreign policy, Christianity, the relation between faith and philosophy, the philosophy of history, and education. This definitive, handsomely produced family biography introduces readers to the eventful lives of the German-born Gerhart Niemeyer, his wife Lucie, and their illustrious ancestors. This sewn cloth bound edition, richly illustrated and printed on superior gloss paper, makes it an excellent gift or collector copy.
What They're Saying...
"Pause for one minue (Just one minute) to admire the book itself, never mind the text. It is something of sheer beauty, glossy paper cloth-bound, with 200-plus photographs and illustrations. It is as fine an example of modern book craft as I have seen, and it tells the story of Gerhart and Lucie Niemeyer…It is fine that there is now this volume, so successful in recalling his life and career."
