"It is a great pity that we in the United States do not have our own Roger Scruton. As his . . . collection of essays reminds us, he is an accomplished philosopher who writes trenchantly about many important political, social and religious issues, who cares

passionately about art and culture and who is also a brilliant conservative polemicist. . . .

"Mr. Scruton has two great virtues as a critic. One is his ability to combine a delicate appreciation of culture with the robust analytical skills of a trained philosopher. . . .

"Mr. Scruton's other great virtue is his habit of assessing things from the inside,

taking them on their own terms. If his judgments are often harsh, one nevertheless comes away feeling that he has made the best case possible for his subject. This makes his criticism more devastating yet also more generous than the criticism of most other commentator." - Roger Kimball, New York Times Book Review

"Each essay has been constructed with considerable care, and the positions taken are clearly stated and soundly argued. . . . He shows . . . that the philosopher-critic is alive and well. . . . Recommended for all academic libraries." - Library Journal

" Scruton] writes eloquently of the way in which social bonds, if refashioned in contractual form. 'become profane, a system of fa ade, a Disneyland version of what was formerly

dignified and monumental.'" - Peter Clarke, London Review of Books
