Charles Murray's new book is called: Coming Apart: The State of White America, 1960-2010.
Now David Brooks:
The Great Divorce: I’ll be shocked if there’s another book this year as important as Charles Murray’s “Coming Apart.” I’ll be shocked if there’s another book that so compellingly describes the most important trends in American society…
How can a book that explicitly leaves out Asian-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, Amerindians, African-Americans, people of mixed race, and Arab-Americans possibly describe "the most important trends in American society"?
How can the New York Times editors publish a piece without asking David Brooks why he does not dare mention the subtitle of the book he is puffing?
Why oh why can't we have a better press corps?
