Sendes vanligvis innen 5-15 dager
Essayists including Anne Applebaum, Robert Bork, Robert P. George, Christina Hoff Sommers, Paul Johnson, and Roger Scruton examine the intellectual and spiritual traditions of our belief in individual liberty, from the Judeo Christian origins through Enlightenment philosophy. An essential volume of essays commissioned by the American Spectator and edited by the philosopher Roger Scruton, Liberty and Civilization examines the intellectual and spiritual traditions of our belief in individual liberty, from its Judeo Christian origins on through Enlightenment philosophy. As we are confronted by belligerent atheism at home and jihadist Islam abroad, Liberty and Civilization is an invaluable tool for understanding why it is critical that we defend the cultural, religious, and intellectual institutions that have made our civilization great. As one would expect from the American Spectator, the responses are both fiery and edifying, representing a broad swath of American conservative thought. The essayists include Paul Johnson, Anne Applebaum, Robert Bork, Robert P. George, Christina Hoff Sommers, and Roger Scruton.
