"Contrasting the Victorian system of virtues--respectability, self-help, discipline, cleanliness, obedience, orderliness--with the opportunistic, superficial morality of modern society, an intellectual historian calls for a deeper commitment to moral responsibility."
"A coherent and devastating attack on the forces of post-modernism in academic studies, literary, philosophical and historical...unashamedly and enjoyably bellicose." - Michael Howard, The New York Times Book Review.
