    1. This was a somewhat difficult book to read, even for a theory-nut like me. I enjoyed Lott's ability to be a contrarian and willing to critique members of the New Left who have either become centrist or neo-liberal since the Reagan era. No scholar is safe from Lott. His writing style could use more clarity, but I liked Lott's bravery in challenging figureheads from the New Left or individuals that progressives or social democrats find appealing, like Cornel West, Richard Rorty, and Todd Gitlin.
