""When Fred Miller Robinson tugs the bowler from the closet in The Man in the Bowler Hat: His History and Iconography, a wealth of cultural and social baggage comes tumbling out after it.""--Esquire

""Entertaining and enlightening. . . . A scholarly, thoughtful, and well-documented cultural critique.""--Journal of Popular Culture

""A hundred years of Western culture pulled out of a bowler hat--it's quite a trick, and Robinson accomplishes it with considerable flourish.""--Roger Shattuck, Boston University

""An attempt to penetrate the bowler's significance in art, literature, and life. . . . [Robinson] has ferreted out plenty of curious and varied information, he has some nice observations of detail, and he offers a good deal to enlighten and amuse.""--New Yorker

""A witty, well-written, scrupulously researched book that is a wonderful fusion of genres: social history, cultural history, and something that falls between belles lettres and fiction.""--Dore Ashton, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art
