Contemporary Culture • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1992

This may as well be titled "History for the Determinedly Ignorant and Naive." Davis takes third-grade ideas and slants them toward faddish political rectitude: capitalists, Republicans and Caucasians are bad; environmentalists, socialists and unionizers are good. He narrates the introductions himself, and we are fairly warned; his voice is appropriately pedagogical--he sounds like a college sophomore. Mercifully, he turns the tapes over to a competent narrator, who is asked vapid questions by three or four stand-ins, one of whom sounds like Davis himself. Anyone with the faintest knowledge of the field will listen with gritted teeth. D.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPT 93]
