First published in 1997, this volume follows Catley and Cristaudo as they defend Western Civilization against all comers: against the rest of the world, especially the Third World, and against its own internal irritants: ‘the scribblings of the intelligentsia’ by idealist philosophers, feminists, greens, post-moderns, multiculturalists, Orientalists, anti-nationalists, socialists and Keynesians, most of them tenured academics in the arts and social sciences. As academic political scientists themselves they have done time in a number of the ideological prisons they attack, and they write about those states of mind with experienced cynicism ... As in Paradise Lost, the devil gets all the best tunes. The identification of civilization’s enemies is wildly, sometimes hilariously, politically incorrect.
