Editorial Reviews


Kay Hymowitz thoughtfully takes on the minimalists who say a marriage is just a shack-up plus a piece of paper. Her elegant essays show that marriage is an essential culture-preserver, poverty-fighter, and life-improver. -- Marvin Olasky, editor–in–chief, World News Group, WORLD

America could save itself a lot of trouble by paying attention to what [Hymowitz] writes. -- Theodore Dalrymple, author of Our Culture, What’s Left of It

A sobering investigation of the widening gap in the American social structure that's being caused by new attitudes toward marriage. -- Ron Haskins, Brookings Institution

The most fascinating (but grimmest) with child-rearing skills in unmarried America. -- Charlotte Hays, The Wall Street Journal

Marriage and Caste in America should provoke serious thought about how marriage has become a class issue―and what we can do about it. -- Christine B. Whelan, New York Post

Essential. -- David Brooks, The New York Times

Hymowitz...has concluded that the family revolution [is both] bad news for children [and] has had the effect of stratifying the country as a whole., Steve Goddard's History Wire

Hymowitz provides an arresting diagnosis of American social ills. -- Cheryl Miller, The American Conservative

Hymowitz has the gift of being able to convey complicated ideas, theories, and history in lucid and witty language. -- Lisa Schiffren, COMMENTARY

A strong case for the value of marriage., Today's Machine World
