To me this is sort of a history book, a history of very deep questions going on during the 80s, that people active in that time might remember, and that people active now should know. For instance, I knew very little of the Overtown Rebellion that took place in Miami, that is a very big deal but you won't learn about it from most sources. Also an essay on what was then the emerging rap music scene is really interesting. A lot about what was then an impending WW3 also colors this book, along with the contradictions giving rise to this potential war like globalization (which at that point was still emerging), and Russia and other wars goin on. The short and sharp essays make it easy to get into this stuff and retain it, so I think its a valuable book.
