Today, twenty-five years and one and a half million books later, he has accomplished what has been called " the greatest cultural rescue effort in Jewish history." In "Outwitting History," Lansky shares his adventures as well as the poignant and often laugh-out-loud stories he heard as he traveled the country collecting books. Introducing us to a dazzling array of writers, he shows us how an almost-lost culture is the bridge between the old world and the future? and how the written word can unite everyone who believes in the power of great literature. 316 pages
