Format: Paperback
This is a shockingly bad book by a pugnacious but failed 'race warrior' who plays the colour card while holding his own people in contempt. His claim of racial discrimination failed dismally in a U.S Court. He is a stupid man with a ponderous Victorian style that can't disguise an entire absence of thought.
His book depends on the notion that White Rationality aint the same as Upper Class Bengali Rationality as exhibited by the only Bhadralok Bengali too stupid to get admission to Oxford or Cambridge till given a veneer of Econometric prowess (back in the mid Seventies, still intellectually plausible) by a degree from the LSE.

True, Hilary Putnam, in his dotage, says similar things- but Putnam is bright. Roy isn't. Never has been. Never will be.
