Holiday Books: Family values

Only 27 shopping days until Christmas!

The 2008 Holiday Book Sale continues with three great books addressing the "culture war" issues of marriage, family and sexuality:
  • Barbara Dafoe Whitehead's The Divorce Culture: Rethinking Our Commitments to Marriage and Family is a mind-opening examination of the historical development of our society's attitudes toward marriage and divorce. This is a book I enthusiastically recommend to anyone who wants to understand the crisis that currently afflicts the American family.
  • Carolyn Graglia's Domestic Tranquility: A Brief Against Feminism is the best defense of traditional womanhood you'll ever read. Keep in mind that Graglia graduated law school back in the pre-feminist era, so she offers a powerful first-person debunking of the feminist myth that the "women's movement" was necessary to women's "empowerment."
  • Ten years after it was first published, Wendy Shalit's A Return to Modesty: Discovering the Lost Virtue remains a powerful rebuttal to the barbaric culture of promiscuity. Shalit takes on our society's popular mythology of the evils of sexual "repression" in a way that is elegant, intelligent and persuasive.
