    This book, and both reviews, are cold-war anti-communism warmed over,
    and nothing but. _Society_ is a hateful, racist neocon rag
    masquerading as scholarship. Unless the review distort Ellis' book
    seriously, it sounds like much the same thing -- another attack on
    egalitarianism, i.e. in favor of, not "most Americans," but the elite.

         "The Nobel Peace Prize winner of 1996, physicist Joseph Rotblat,
     said that he had quit the atom bomb project in 1944 when told that
    its purpose was to develop a weapon not against the countries we were
      then fighting but against our ally, the Soviet Union." - William
                   Mandel, _Saying No To Power_, p. 175.
