Door verder gebruik te maken van deze website ga je hiermee akkoord. What happened to honourable occupations, like managing an underground brothel, flogging heroin or running a numbers game? Born in Russia and educated at Moscow University, Alexander Boot lectured on English literature, wrote art and film criticism, and made a nuisance of himself with the authorities. Someone with the courage to say the unsayable: that one can be for liberty while detesting many of the means by which liberty is achieved. His book is the most readable account of the decline of the West since Spengler, and serenely free from the contamination of academic jargon. Shorn of money, the philistine is easy prey to any Delilah, and he knows it. And has Western civilisation found modernity but lost itself? It should be read by politicians, teachers, bishops and anyone who has anything to do with public administration. The results are often unexpected but always original and invigorating.

We should all read it. Enveloped in wet fog, the figure at a distance appears to be a fellow philistine, whereas in fact it is the disguised nihilist. What made the West western? The author traces the development of Western civilisation from its origins โ€” paradoxically in the East โ€” and examines what he sees as its inexorable decline in all forms of art and all walks of life.

Noone who claims to know anything should open their mouth in public without reading it. The results are often unexpected but always original and invigorating. Many a time throughout the blood-soaked twentieth century, the philistine showed eagerness to kill untold millions in defence of his right to be happy in that tastelessly comfortable way of his.
