This book consists of two devastatingly funny essays, closely related in theme and substance, both dealing with political stances and social styles in our status-minded world. InRadical CHIC , Wolfe focuses primarily on one symbolic event: a gathering of the politically correct at Leonard Bernstein's duplex apartment on Park Avenue to meet spokesmen of the Black Panther Party. He re-creates the incongruous scene-and its astonishing repercussions-with high fidelity. In the companion essay, Wolfe travels west to San Francisco to survey another meeting-ground between militant minorities and the liberal white establishment.MAU-MAUING THE FLAK CATCHERS deals with the newly-emerging art of confrontation, as practiced by San Francisco's militant minorities in response to a highly bureaucratized poverty program.
