The acclaimed new book Life Under Compulsion shows you why the American Spectator says that author Anthony Esolen stands in “the top rank of authors of cultural criticism.” If you have ever wondered how to raise a child who can sit with a good book and read—or who is moved by beauty, or who doesn’t have to buy the latest vanity or gadget—then Life Under Compulsion is the book for you.

“This is at once a deeply entertaining and a seriously impressive book. Dare to approach it with an open mind, and you will not put it down unchanged.” —

“Almost every sentence gives you pause. I found myself noting down a lot, mostly things I want to discuss with my kids, and things they’ll need to discuss with their future kids.” —Patheos
