Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Marxist Drivel Lewontin has gathered a wonderful collection of straw men and woven them into a beautiful basket to hold his massive catch of red herrings. Nothing but the tired ravings of an old Marxist, disappointed that the proletariat never really rose to the occasion.
