Time, the Familiar Stranger


J. T. Fraser is the founder of the International Society for the Study of Time, and the author or co-editor of at least nine volumes concerning, in one way or another, the "meaning of time". The present volume is addressed to general readers. It is, like so much of Fraser's work, a diffuse miscellanya potpourri of things that can be said with graceful, recondite humanism about the elusive object of the author's obsession. Attractively printed, with fifty illustrations, a "glossary" (seven entries), and ten pages of (wildly diverse) bibliographic suggestions.
