By 'rear-guard' I mean a desperate attempt to salvage something
of a reputation from the moral morass that is closing round the
heads of Hopkins and Jacobs.

If you cannot see the problems with Hopkins' methodology, and
how it has defined the development of the abduction phenomenon
into the dangerous monster it has become today, then you have
clearly not read Hopkins's book as carefully as you would have
us think.
