Readable and perceptive, although weakened by a tendency to exaggerate the importance of coincidence. The author is no apologist for the old Northeast, but he attributes many of the nation's recent problems to the ascendance of the values and politicians of the region lying south of a line from San Francisco to the Virginia-North Carolina boundary.
