Americans will be astounded to learn the history of the movement to undo the institution and definition of marriage, and its ultimate purposes. Takedown is a powerful documentary in an accessible book, and the one most critical to engage in our time, to face what comes next. --Sarah Liaugminas, host of A Closer Look and author of Non-Negotiable
Takedown by Paul Kengor switches on the krieg lights to expose the shadowy theoreticians and practicioners who have undermined marriage for over a century. Kengor s careful research shows that the hammer used to smash the House of Marriage has been invariably accompanied by the sickle used to cut the power cables. If you want to understand the ideology behind the sudden juggernaut against the millennia-old definitions of marriage and family, get this book. --Patrick Coffin, host of Catholic Answers Live and author of Sex Au Naturel: What It Is and Why It s Good For Your Marriage
