Why does the right dominate debates on crime, family values, and economic freedom? Why does the left defend such arbitrary and divisive aspects of affirmative action, while equivocating on questions of ecology and political empowerment for young people? The answer, Cummings believes, is that too many progressives have avoided politically sensitive issues, condemning themselves to intellectual atrophy and political ineffectiveness.
Cummings clearly is not an advocate for the "self-serving, hypocritical right." But he contends that the left handicaps itself with political correctness, and that frank analysis of taboo topics requires us to move beyond the traditional dichotomy of left and right. With passion and rigor, he argues for a transformation of U.S. culture and institutions that will enable individuals to pursue their vital interests without impinging on the rights of others and undermining the public good.

About the Author:

Michael Cummings is chair of the Political Science Department at the University of Colorado at Denver.

Review:

"Stated clearly and concisely - and not bound by the political correctness of radicals, liberals, or conservatives - this book shows how contemporary shibboleths impede constructive communication on issues, harden into fixed positions, and foreclose the possibility of sensible policies. The reader can learn from every page " - Peter G. Stiliman
