'This is a book brimming with observations and arguments, some surprising, many provocative, all engaging.'- Chandran Kukathas, The American Conservative
'An excellent introduction to [Scruton's] range of interests' - Kenneth Minogue, Times Literary Supplement
"Dooley compiles 16 selected essays by English philosopher Roger Scruton on topics ranging from conservative politics to sex, culture, the environment, wine, and hunting, which were written between 1986 and 2008 (most after 2000). He aims to present a companion to his volume Roger Scruton: The Philosopher on Dover Beach and a text for those wishing to teach Scruton's philosophy or become acquainted with his work. The first group of essays relate to Scruton's political conservatism, followed by sections on his theory of the nation and his ideas about sex and marriage, religion, knowledge, and the role of architecture in human life." -Eithne O'Leyne, BOOK NEWS, Inc.
