It covers a wide range of subjects, from immigration to popular culture via religion and the electoral system, in a mere 300 pages (at high speed, therefore. Hold on to your hats!).
The only problem with this opus is that it was published in 1999, and no small amount of water has run under the bridges since then.
What on earth possessed me to grab this and actually read it almost all the way through, you would be well-informed to ask?
I haven't got the foggiest. Am experiencing some trouble finding incentive to read, at the moment...
