Editorial Reviews

Max L. Stackhouse
This collection of essays by noted intellectuals on the academic front lines of 'the neo-conservative movement' clearly reveals that what is driving the movement is not 'a meanness of spirit', an 'anti-societal egoism', or a 'reactionary religiosity', as some contemporary critics claim...Readers may not agree with every assessment of the ethical, philosophical, or cultural situation, as I do not; but they will know why the intellectual vitality in this movement is high and likely to endure.
George Weigel
An exceptionally fine collection of essays that sheds light, rather than more partisan heat, on the debate over America's 'culture war'. If everyone who invokes the image of the 'culture war' between now and the 1996 presidential election would take the trouble to read this book, we might have an electoral debate that would make the Founding Fathers proud of us.
Father Robert Sirico
It is remarkable (and refreshing) to observe the extent to which moral categories are being retrieved in civic discourse and now occupy a central place in contemporary discussions on public policy. Culture in Crisisis an invaluable resource for those who want to intelligently participate in the dialogue.
