Publisher's Summary

Western civilization is under attack. At universities and in the media, professors and pundits decry Western civilization as exploitative, destructive, and without value. But fear not: coming to its defense is this "P.I." guide to Western civilization. Using historical evidence, Professor Anthony Esolen knocks down the relativist arguments and shows how the West laid the cornerstones for all of modern civilization, including historical, artistic, and intellectual achievements.
We owe it to history and to ourselves to acknowledge Western civilization's role in shaping our values and our world.

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.
