Esolen, “Out of the Ashes”

Next month, Regnery Publishing releases Out of the Ashes: Rebuilding American Culture, by Anthony Esolen (Providence College). The publisher’s description follows:

9781621575146-frontcover-202x306It’s not your imagination: civilized human society is collapsing. Communities no longer work towards a common good; children are no longer our first priority; businesses no longer value “hard work”; arts and skills have been lost; and gender is decided by the individual, not biology.

We cannot reverse national and global trends, says professor Anthony Esolen; but we can build communities that live up to humanity’s promise and responsibility. In Out of the Ashes, Esolen identifies the gaping problems in our society and lays out a blueprint for reconstruction that puts our future in the hands of individuals focused on the good of the local community.
