No Apologies: Why Civilization Depends on the Strength of Men (2022)

Anthony Esolen

No more apologies for being a man! Best-selling social commentator Anthony Esolen draws on timeless wisdom to defend the masculine virtues of strength, drive, ambition, and determination in building and upholding civilization itself.

It’s time to end the apology tour for traditional masculinity. A generation of young men and boys are being raised in self-loathing, taught that the core of their identity as men is not only abhorrent, but is responsible for most,if not all,  of humanity’s ills.

In No Apologies, veteran author and professor, Anthony Esolen, issues a powerful defense of the virtues of masculine strength. From the thankless brute force of the nameless men who erected buildings, paved roads, and cleared the ground upon which human society stands, to the boundless energy of youth that compelled centuries of global exploration, to the father’s embodied authority as protector, director, and exemplar of law and justice, Esolen shows how civilization has rested upon the strength of men.

With his customary wisdom and wit, Esolen draws on two millenia of historical thought, introducing his readers to giants such as Plato, Augustine, Aquinas, Solzhenitsyn, and even Mark Twain to present a vigorous and timely defense of the masculine ethos.
