This is a straightforward reading of Bork’s condemnation of America’s modern trends toward political and moral chaos. Reader Barrett Whitener projects a confident newscaster’s voice, mildly expressive, neither flamboyant nor monotonic. With no dialogue and no characters to distinguish, Whitener does a competent job, never stumbling no matter how difficult the terminology. The book does not lend itself to histrionics anyway. The advantage to the listener is in the subject itself: Bork traces the failures of liberalism deep into America’s past, probing both the ideological and political/structural reasons for its recent development, especially the explosions of the 1960’s.
