I read the excerpt a few months back and I really liked it. Unfortunately the book is just kinda a repetition of the same basic points as that excerpt; the authors remain vague throughout and refuse to get their hands dirty. A post above pointed out how the word "militancy" carries all the baggage they're trying to jettison. They're absolutely right and this is emblematic of the problems with the book.

To be fair, the task at hand is monumental and perhaps insoluble. How do you gesture towards rigid ideologues in a gentle way without that critique becoming just another political position?
