Well written, not always well researched
Adams didn't invent the toaster or push the Nazis out of France, but you wouldn't know that from reading this book. Diggins attributes practically every important idea in modernist political philosophy to Adams, as well as other bon mots that were actually said by others. The exaggeration undermines the attempt at a rehabilitation, which is a pity, since Adams does not fit the dichotomies often used to interpret revolutionary politics--which was Diggins's point.
