This book is poorly argued, and I don't think that Moreton demonstrates the connections she is trying (I think??) to make. However, she avoids -- for the most part -- a "what's the matter with Kansas" type of argument, so that, at least, is refreshing; and if nothing else, she holds differing sets of values up for comparison in a way that could even be useful for discussion. I'm still not sure what her aim and intended audience were, though.

Chris I found Moreton's thesis convincing as a talk when I heard her last year. What did you see missing from her argument?
