In this controversy yet compelling book, Richard Koch and Chris Smith identify six key pillars of Western civilization: Christianity, optimism, science, economic growth, liberalism and individualism. They show how these ideas have suffered a century of sustained attack from within and no longer inspire or unite the West, making a drift towards collective suicide appear inevitable. However, all may not be as bleak as it seems. A careful examination of the six factors shows that they have great resilience.
