Editorial Reviews


"It is a small, conservative, philosophical gem, and I love it."--Amos Perlmutter

"Gottfried's book addresses multicultural ideology and its program: to fashion beliefs and behavior in conformity with the multicultural outlook on the world, which is one of victim and victimizer. . . . His analysis of the situation both in the United States and in western Europe is devastating and brilliant, and in providing a precise analysis of what it is we are up against he has produced a book from which any authentic conservative would benefit."--American Conservative

"Gottfried has seen an aspect of multiculturalism and political correctness that previous critics of these doctrines have failed adequately to stress. He uses his insight to develop a brilliant analysis and critique of the modern managerial and therapeutic state. . . . Gottfried has dissected the social effects of the contemporary church better than anyone else of whom I am aware."--Mises Review

For those who can handle the truth, Paul Edward Gottfried serves as a fusion of Aristotle, Joseph de Maistre, and Carl Schmitt. What Aristotle did for the Greek polis, Gottfried has done for the nation-states of the West. . . . Gottfried makes a compelling case that political correctness has become a substitute for Christianity."--Chronicles

About the Author

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Carl Robinson on May 24, 2013
Format: Paperback
This book is a very academic, very dense with words, study on Multiculturalism. In it, the author argues that Multiculturalism-especially importing dysfunctional Third World People-is an outgrowth of America's founding Protestantism.

Many of America's mainline Protestant denominations have lost their belief in the abstract version of Christianity, such as Original Sin being caused by eating a fruit in the Garden of Eden, but still feel the guilt of Mankind's fall. In this case, the plight of Third World people is the sin and redemption comes through Multicultural programs.

This book is written in the heavy style of a peer-reviewed, university-level humanities thesis. The resulting shibboleths shroud its simple idea with complexity which detract from the work.
