The glory that was Greece...the grandeur that was Rome" — not so long ago, Western culture was the foundation of every educated American. But not anymore. Plato's teachings? Irrelevant. Roman culture? Chauvinistic. If there's one thing liberal professors and pundits can't stand—it's Western civilization.

Coming to its rescue is The Politically Incorrect Guide™ to Western Civilization—the essential sourcebook for defending everything from Christianity and the Classics to Sophocles and the Founding Fathers. And who better to defend our heritage than one of America's foremost Western civilization scholars—Professor Anthony Esolen. Esolen takes on the "PC police," revealing what they don't want you to know, including:

* How the "Dark" Ages were full of learning, invention, and art—and the Renaissance was rather backward
* How the Enlightenment yielded tyranny and violence, and encouraged the devaluation of the individual
* How the "progressive ideas" of the nineteenth century led to the fascism, communism, and two world wars of the twentieth century

Esolen's The Politically Incorrect Guide™ to Western Civilization brings the battle for truth, tradition, and morality to the doorsteps of leftists who dismiss our heritage and disown our country's foundation. With the West threatened by global jihad, China, and more, defending Western civilization has never been so important. Paperback, 256 pages.
