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 The Politically Incorrect 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.
Bet your college professor never told you:
* Why "Western civ" is the story of...us
* How the "Enlightenment" yielded tyranny and war
* How climate change affects culture (hint: warmer is better)
* Why Jesus is the most important figure in history
* Why the Middle Ages were the real "Age of Reason"
