Read for a first-year political science class, where we had to write a critical review. At the time I considered it to be slightly more centrist than the usual "angry leftist" stuff I read, and that viewpoint was actually pretty welcome. It was reasonably well written, too. Of course, this is a five-year-old review, so perhaps if I read it again my opinion would change. Still, worth a read if you're into this sort of book.
