Interesting to read this book in the wake of the election of a Democratic president who so far has proved adept at getting out his particular message. Part one consists of half a dozen older essays that include repetitions and redundancies. Part two is more concise and focused.

Both parts contain astute and useful observations on the nature of modern American politics. I suspect (though I can't know for certain, not having read the other book) that it would make more sense to read Moral Politics and part two of this book and to skip part one.
