DATA FOR TABLES IN CHAPTER 5 OF
RICHARD A. POSNER, PUBLIC INTELLECTUALS:
A STUDY OF DECLINE

Table I
Table II
 
N.B.:
1. The first data set (Table I) is the set actually utilized for the tables in Chapter 5. The second data set (Table II) is the expanded set referred to in the Appendix to that chapter.
2. Identification of individuals in the data sets as being Jewish is based on last names plus limited biographical inquiry; guesswork was unavoidable, and there are undoubtedly some mistakes.
3. The Tables are in Adobe Acrobat format.

**Update (1/24/2002): Table I is now in total alphabetical order.
