Product description

Review

There is so much learning and unconventional wisdom in it that you want to make the reading last.--Norman Stone

Theodore Dalrymple is the best doctor-writer since William Carlos Williams.--Peggy Noonan

Theodore Dalrymple has succeeded (once more) in publishing a book that is both thoughtful and absorbing.--Paul Hollander "New York Sun "

Ridiculously prolific and a favorite of bloggers.... He's one of the very best social critics of our age.--brothersjudd.com

The sobering, fiery and ominous truth.--Stanley Crouch "Tulsa World "

This highly intelligent and perceptive writer never hesitates to 'tell it like it is'.--Angela Ellis-Jones "Salisbury Review "

Dalrymple has acquired a following on the sarcastic right; if anything, the thoughtful left should be reading him."--Geoffrey Wheatcroft "Newstatesman.Com "

Terrific.... Dalrymple is direct and his judgments are so true.--Stanley Crouch "New York Daily News "

These bracing essays horrify, irritate, enlighten, amuse. They also stir you to remember, as Dalrymple puts it, what we have to lose.--Roger Kimball "New York Sun "

Read the words of a man who has been on the street...who brings a vast intelligence to his conclusions.--Stanley Crouch "Independent "

Dalrymple paints a chilling portrait of what is happening these days in France.--James K. Fitzpatrick "Wanderer "

The brutal, penetrating honesty of his thinking and the vividness of his prose make Theodore Dalrymple the George Orwell of our time.--Denis Dutton, Editor "Arts and Letters Daily "

It's rare to find such a morally coherent, historically informed and human account as Our Culture, What's Left of It.--Rev. Johannes L. Jacobse "Town Hall "

Theodore Dalrymple makes a devastating diagnosis of liberalism's recent ills.--Randy Boyagoda "Globe and Mail "

A clear-eyed assessment of the human condition at the beginning of the 21st century.--H. J. Kirchhoff "Globe and Mail "

It's rare for someone to produce a work on social issues that is so readable.--Kevin Walker "Tampa Tribune "

Striking. Most collections of essays are lackluster affairs, but Dalrymple's is an exception.--Jacob Heilbrunn "The New York Times "

An unexpectedly moving illustration.--Stefan Beck "The New Criterion "

Dalrymple is able to say things with an authority few have.--Michael Platt "Society "

Whether you find Dalrymple refreshing or infuriating will depend on your political point of view. Dalrymple calls them as he sees them, and there is not an ounce of political correctness in him.--Bruce Ramsey "The Seattle Times "

Insightful....[Dalrymple is a] profound British social critic.--Thomas Sowell, Rose and Milton Friedman Senior Fellow on Public Policy at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University "Nationally Syndicated Columnist "

Another classic book...by Theodore Dalrymple.--Thomas Sowell, Rose and Milton Friedman Senior Fellow on Public Policy at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University "Post Chronicle "

Dalrymple writes a clear and considered prose that makes him formidable indeed.--David Pryce Jones "Book Review Digest ""

Theodore Dalrymple is the Edmund Burke of our age. Our Culture, What s Left of It is not simply an important book, it is a necessary one.--Roger Kimball"

Penetrating analysis and literary eloquence make the book a worthy read for anyone concerned with the fate of civilization.--Andrew Martin "Courier Journal ""

The manner in which Dalrymple wields his critical scalpel fixes our attention he makes no promise to fix our condition.--Jay Martin "Antioch Review ""

[This book] depicts the crucial problems in western culture in beautifully rich prose.--Gregory L. Schneider "Topeka Capital Journal ""

The book is elegantly written, conscientiously argued, provocative and fiercely committed...measured polemics arouse disgust, shame and despair: they will shake many readers' views of their physical surroundings and cultural assumptions, and have an enriching power to improve the way that people think and act.--Richard Davenport Hines "Times Literary Supplement ""

Engrossing. Dalrymple is intelligent, witty, uncommonly perceptive about human affairs, and scathingly honest about human folly.--Edward J. Sozanski "The Philadelphia Inquirer "

Review

Whether you find Dalrymple refreshing or infuriating will depend on your political point of view. Dalrymple calls them as he sees them, and there is not an ounce of political correctness in him.--Bruce Ramsey "The Seattle Times "
