Introduced by Douglas Murray

A collection of twelve provocative essays by the philosopher and political thinker Roger Scruton. Each ‘confession’ reveals an aspect of the author’s thinking that his critics would probably have advised him to keep to himself.

 

Scruton attempts to find a remedy for the void at the heart of our civilisation and seeks to answer the pressing problems of our age: What can we do to protect Western values against Islamic extremism? Why is the Nation State worth preserving? Why do we turn immediately on all those who wish to defend our rooted values against whatever invading force has appeared over the horizon? How should we achieve a timely death against the advances of modern medicine? This diverse collection includes essays on art, music, architecture, government, social media, and culture.

As Douglas Murray writes in his introduction, Scruton was an outsider, yet he showed his readers ‘not just what they should reject, but what they should nurture and love.’ This selection offers consolation and guidance to a new generation of readers.
