`[...]Carneiro deserves praise for dealing with one of the most important questions in both social science and history. This book will have the affect of helping social scientist and scholars more self-consciously examine their assumptions regarding the nature of history and the role the social sciences and the humanities in historical investigations.'
Journal of the History of the Behavioral Sciences, 37:3 (2001)
'[...] the range of authorities cited makes the book a fascinating read. [...]the polemics themselves, and the thoughtful development of the literature, makes this book a useful source, and the author's infectious enthusiasm for his project should be widely emulated.'
