This book is so poorly written, that one needs a shovel to read it. If B. can take a page to say what should be handled in a sentence, he'll do it. Worse, the writing is so poorly organized on a paragraph by paragraph basis that you can tell that he plunked this out lounging at a computer. I keep wanting to scream (as I do at my students): "Outline! Outline! Outline!!!"
Plus the material, fascist society, is already incredibly boring - even on its own. Better to stick with Tannenbaum. He's also dry as an autumn leaf -- but at least he's concise.
