Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Just read some reviews of Lipset's American Exceptionalism.

They are interesting in what they say obliquely. The first, Publisher's Review is most interesting:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/product-description/0393316149/ref=dp_proddesc_0/105-9631699-272843 2?ie=UTF8&n=283155&s=books

Then I checked out Lipset's biography:


1975-1990 Professor at Stanford University.
During the last quater of his life he was a Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution(Stanford University), and Hazel Professor of Public Policy(George Mason University, Virginia). This at a time George Mason was attempting to hire nationally known rightish academics to improve it's academic street cred.

In 1960, the world changes for Lipset.

The word begins with n and ends with n and contains six letters.

Why would any leftist care what Lipset thought?

I certainly wouldn't buy a book on American labor history or cultural history that he wrote.
