"One reason that Anderson’s book appears a little anaemic is that it 
lacks an engagement with the entire tradition of the Left"

I guess he's still stuck in this mode. The Friedman referred to below is 
Thomas Friedman, one must surmise. Oy vay:

"By contrast, commanding the field of direct political constructions of 
the time, the Right has provided one fluent vision of where the world is 
going, or has stopped, after another—Fukuyama, Brzezinski, Huntington, 
Yergin, Luttwak, Friedman. These are writers that unite a single 
powerful thesis with a fluent popular style, designed not for an 
academic readership but a broad international public. This confident 
genre, of which America has so far a virtual monopoly, finds no 
equivalent on the Left."
