"This is one of those books full of assertions. His hard to follow academic style does not prevent me from reading with a critical mind. I was hoping for something a bit more factual but so far it seems to be a whole lot of opinion. I admit to bringing my own bias to the work, since he is writing about my ancestors after all. Perhaps there will be more informative facts as the book progresses." Feb 08, 2018 12:34PM
