I felt like this had a little too much anecdote and took too long to get to the support for its ideas. But it seems interesting and I might give it another look later. One non-relevant thing that caught my eye was its comment about Jimmy Carter's moral equivalent of war speech. In Tam Lin Janet makes a comment in her journal about how hunting was the moral equivalent of war. She could just as well have borrowed that from William James, but I wonder if Dean wasn't thinking of this speech. Though I believe it would have been given after the events of Tam Lin; I'd have to go back and re-read to be sure.
