The review of fellow-blogger James Crossley’s book is mildly critical, concluding that he only demonstrates superficial awareness of social-scientific criticism – I am sure that James will want to respond. There is already some response over at Deinde. More importantly, the review does not, unfortunately, reveal the identity of the scholar mentioned in James’ anti-preface to the book.
