Publisher Description

Christianity, Judaism, dead white males, old-fashioned morality, the traditional family, tradition itself—everything the liberals hate can be summed up in two words: Western civilization. Here is the ultimate Politically Incorrect Guide: a sprightly, informative summary of the original source of all things politically incorrect from Moses, Caesar, and Christ, to Dante, Thomas More, and the Founding Fathers.

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 Professor Anthony Esolen's The Politically Incorrect Guide to Western Civilization. This PI Guide will knock down the relativist arguments and show how the West laid the cornerstones for all of modern civilization, including historical, artistic, and intellectual achievements. Using historical evidence and compelling arguments, Esolen proves why we not only owe it to history but also to ourselves to set the record straight and respectfully acknowledge Western civilization's vital role in shaping our values and our world.

    " I liked and agreed with most of this. At the end the author concludes that the only way to rescue Western, i.e. American Civilization is for the nation to follow Jesus Christ. This is the entire premise of the Book of Mormon, so I heartily agree with him. "
