inclined personally to want to rush right out and buy it. Not to
say that I entirely disagree with everything Jenkins writes in this
first chapter, but it's so gosh-darn methodologically sloppy. Just
the sort of rambling, loosely-reasoned, over-generalized thingy that
lib-arts majors love. As far as I can see, there's very little
rigour to his analysis. He might find an acorn once in a while,
but it's likely to have been an accident.
