about this book

In this brilliant collection of speeches, essays, and reviews, Crouch brings his vigorous, combative intellect to bear on everything from gangsta rap and the tribalism of minority politics to feminism and African-American literature. Whether he is comparing the U.S. Constitution to an extended blues improvisation, analyzing the implications of The Bell Curve wars, or discoursing gracefully on Miles Davis and Saul Bellow, Crouch is always fresh and provocative, and on every page turns this polemic into a high-wire act of erudition, brio, and verbal style.
