Excellent!

Only the politically incorrect will have a civilization in the next generation. The vapid politically correct ones will find themselves in an abyss of despair, decline, and destruction brought upon by their selfish choices.

insightful book read by a terrific reader.

Professor Esolen has written a gem that reminds us of the foundations of the Judeo-Christian West. While he notes that these foundations have been gravely shaken in the past few hundred years, he is still hopeful for it.
