This is less engaging than his other works and has remained more dated. It is as little ponderous at times and the author's ability to predict future trends is less accurate. There is much more attention paid to church and religion than is warranted and hardly any to issues of race. He didn't anticipate gender politics at all. However, for some of the core issues it is still useful reading.
