A mixture of sharp insights, sentimental romantic prejudices and in depth discourses on the blatantly obvious. Either DH is very stubborn, or his editor was asleep on the job.

.. The Marxist claim to provide a Theory of Everything is certainly impressive, even while qualifying as comically overreaching. The attempt at conceiving and conveying such a vast project without recourse to a single equal sign: hopelessly, pathetically naive; the outcome: just as expected.

Marx is quite frightening. He may well have some valid points about the defects of capitalism, but the programme put forward here by his acolyte, Hendry, is replete with far grosser problems and leaves too many questions unasked, not to say unanswered.
