This review made my week, and made me glad that just the day before I renewed my Nation Associates membership. The Nation's reviews are always great, but this one was beyond the usual pale. It was a good review of conservative and neo-con thought, put it in an original context that I'd never thought about, and was so well written that it made me laugh out loud (I was reading it on an inter-urban bus!). I don't have the kind of independently broad background it would take to really critique the review (I somehow failed to learn much in college or law school), so I have to depend on The Nation and its revieers to enlighten me. The Nation never lets me down, and this one did more: it lifted me up, and that's a hard thing to do these days.
