Publisher's Summary

Ulysses S. Grant represented everything that Marie Antoinette disdained: he was for the people, democratically patriotic, and a loutish drunkard, to boot. A meeting with the 2 of them, and Sir Thomas More and Dr. Karl Marx, can only make for scintillating conversation, to say the least. Steve Allen masterminds this great gathering in the second volume of the classic PBS show, with Joseph Earley as Grant, Jayne Meadows as the Queen of France, Bernard Behrens as the pious More, and Leon Askin as Marx, the dogmatic revolutionary. The questions and arguments fly, but comic genius Allen maintains the peace so that no one loses his - or her - head.


What the Critics Say

"Meeting of Minds held our family fascinated. We felt it a conception of originality and courage...a masterpiece of presentation." (Will Durant)
