An Intelligent Person's Guide to Modern Culture
What do we mean, and what ought we mean by "culture"? In this book, Roger Scruton argues for the religious origin of culture in all its forms, and mounts a defence of the "high culture" of our civilization against its radical and "deconstructionist" critics. He offers a theory of pop culture, a panegyric to Baudelaire, a few reasons why Wagner is just as great as his critics fear him to be, and a raspberry to Cool Britannia.
