Overall I liked this book. The beginning I found rather frustrating though, and nearly gave up. I am glad I didn't though.
I don't like books that frequently say that they will be talking further about a particular topic later. At the beginning the book is full of "we'll explore that later" and "you will learn in chapter x more about this" and, the most over-used of all "as we will see later".
The other big niggle is that there were quite a number of repetitions. I think the work should have been checked over by someone else with a view to cutting these out as unnecessary and to make the book more digestible.
It's rather disorganised too, and the author takes a while to decide whether the book is about him, his career (he touts himself a bit!) or the historical subject. It's untidy.
By the 4th (chapter/part - I lost track!) I warmed to the author. He has taken a subject that needs much more coverage and he has really researched thoroughly. Why haven't more authors considered where political correctness came from? In "Marxism, Multiculturalism and Free Speech" Dr Frank Ellis points out that the first person to use this phrase was Lenin.
Douglas Pratt has taken up where Dr Ellis left off, and I'm glad he did.
Stick with it!
What did you love best about Willing Accomplices?
The work gives the reader a fine overview of the roots of the otherwise inexplicable "politically correct" theme currently eating away at the fabric of the nation.

If you've wondered what Hillary meant when she described herself as a "progressive" in the mold of early 20th century "progressives", this is a must listen!
If you don't like the direction that our government is taking us, this is a must listen!
If you wonder where our education system gets its idiotic ideas, this is a must listen!
It takes a village. Total subjugation of the masses is the goal - collectivism is the kinder gentler term.
