The NYT 2-word review

Email Print

Tom, I was especially taken with the
NYT’s two-word description
of your book in their list. There was your book name and then the following was added: A conservative interpretation.

Conservative = biased, stupid, partisan, unscholarly, and probably racist.

Interpretation = biased, imagined, invented, non-objective, non-factual.

Indeed, if it were only a “conservative interpretation” it would not be worth reading. Thankfully it is not. It is analytically rigorous, which is why it ends up as (my three word review follows) revisionist, radical, and sweeping.
