NYT reviews new book on Don't Ask, Don't Tell
According to the review in today's New York Times, "The main attraction in Unfriendly Fire is the agility and tough-mindedness with which [author Nathaniel] Frank presents his arguments."
The core message of Nathaniel Frank’s book about the American
military’s ban on being openly gay can be summed up in a single slogan:
“ ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ Don’t Work.” Mr. Frank has also been offering
succinct five-minute synopses of his argument as he makes the rounds of
the talk show circuit. So why does his book, “Unfriendly Fire,” need
nearly 300 pages of text to make the same relatively simple points?
Because he makes them so discerningly, so substantively and so well.
