Neither nor

I'm doing a class presentation on Zeev Sternhell's Ni droite ni gauche. The book is sort of what Liberal Fascism would be if it weren't a partisan polemic (or, more accurately, ni partisan polemic, ni revisionist history). I can't decide if I should mention Liberal Fascism in said presentation--it's part of what made me interested in Sternhell's book, and is, let's face it, where Sternhell's ideas have most recently been adopted in American thought (or 'thought,' depending how one sees it). But bringing it up is also ni bringing up a serious piece of scholarship, ni referencing Ann Coulter's latest rant, but something in between.

That's the end of the French grammar lesson of the night.
