You Remind Me of Carlisle

Stanley Kurtz loves talking about the culture wars and has published plenty of books on the same. His recent work is The Lost History of Western Civilization, where he strongly refutes the idea that Western Civilization was created by powerful peoples.

This report also considers that the academy had an influential role in creating the political and cultural division we see around today. Moreover, Kurtz’s new book also claims that learning the history written by dead men is a complete waste of time.

Kurtz makes small points in the book, but he has (intentionally) ignored some larger contexts. Oxford University’s Daniel Walker Howe believes that Kurtz is trying to convince that the proper study of Western Civilization is indeed a valid foundation of today’s world.
