Our Culture, What's Left of It: The Mandarins and the Masses Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This new collection of essays by the author of Life at the Bottom bears the unmistakable stamp of Theodore Dalrymple's bracingly clearsighted view of the human condition. In these pieces, Dr. Dalrymple ranges over literature and ideas, from Shakespeare to Marx, from the breakdown of Islam to the legalization of drugs. Here is a book that restores our faith in the central importance of literature and criticism to our civilization. Theodore Dalrymple is the best doctor-writer since William Carlos Williams. --Peggy Noonan. Includes When Islam Breaks Down, named the best journal article of 2004 by David Brooks of the New York Times.

Synopsis:

A book that restores our faith in the central importance of literature and criticism to our civilization. In the twenty six pieces Dr. Darymple ranges over literature and ideas, from Shakespeare to Marx.
