Heavier reading than I would like on this subject(which I am loathe and rare to say), because he spends pages going into philosophical nuance, explaining detail upon detail before moving the subject along. Also many pages are used either refuting statements or in support of those prominent on the scene of the 80's-both politically and philosophically. More suited to someone with a degree in philosophy who would like a book that stays deep and doesnt mind its era punctuated retorts and supports. For todays reader I would suggest searching for a more up to date, lighter reading on the topic.
And speaking of more up to date books topical to our day:
