Good, but for some reason I had a few problems with it. The writing style didn't pull me for some reason for one thing. There is certainly a lot of very good material here. He does make repeated comparisons between the discrimination of the black person and the Jewish person, which largely works but a few times he seems to veer away from his own argument. Great discussion in class though, historically a very important work.
