The Legends are Back Buck Hawkins and Dobie Garrett, fresh off the outlaw trail and cleared of all trumped-up charges against them, are back doing what they do best as ordinary cowboys on the Singletree Ranch in the Texas Panhandle, happy as a pup with a buttered biscuit. But they can't escape their largely unearned reputations as deadly, cold-eyed gunmen, living legends of the Old West. Buck and Dobie's contentment ends when a stranger rides up to Singletree headquarters looking for the pair. He makes them an offer - a job that pays more money than they ever dreamed, a chance to earn enough for a ranch of their own. The only catch is that they have to agree to be Special Range Marshals in Necesario, the toughest town in Texas, where rustlers, back-shooters and a brewing range war await them-and they still can't shoot straight ...

Westerners love an existential crisis. Each decade since the First World War has raised up prophets of doom proclaiming the end of the Western world as we know it. But this time it's real. Weighed down by economic woes, the seemingly endless war on terror, and the declining power of religion as a unifying force, the West has been limping along. With the public sphere fraying and authoritarian politics rising, this deep-seated crisis is now urgent, and potentially fatal. How did we get here? Ben Ryan's diagnosis is simple: the West is a myth, and it is dying. Its own people are no longer convinced or united by its defining ideal--a sense of universal morals, and of constant progress towards them. Following a series of 'system failures', Westerners--from urban millennials to post-industrial workers-- have lost faith in the West as a moral force. Yet there is a chance for redemption, if we can forge a new common myth of the West: one reviving its great values, and reshaping its ideals for a diverse, forward-looking world. This smart and thoughtful book explores what the West is, what has happened to it, and how we might save it.

His premise is that civilizations have “life spans,” and the Western civilization that produced America and Europe has been replaced, in our lifetime, and before our very eyes. To people whose minds were made by the West, the civilization we now find ourselves in often feels wrong, evil even, but we also find ourselves feeling oddly affectionate toward this strange new world. And the more time that passes, the more “normal” the New Civ gets to feel. We sometimes have to “pinch” ourselves to remember that society once had roots in a universe that knew something of moral absolutes, where the horrible behaviors we now read about in every morning newspaper were so rare that one such event in a year would have felt like the world is just about to end. But these things are what passes for “normalcy” today. We are still able to be reminded of what we know in our bones, although it gets harder all the time: something has gone terribly wrong. That’s what this book is about.

Filled with unforgettable stories of emperors, generals, and religious patriarchs, as well as fascinating glimpses into the life of the ordinary citizen, Lost to the West reveals how much we owe to the Byzantine Empire that was the equal of any in its achievements, appetites, and enduring legacy. For more than a millennium, Byzantium reigned as the glittering seat of Christian civilization. When Europe fell into the Dark Ages, Byzantium held fast against Muslim expansion, keeping Christianity alive. Streams of wealth flowed into Constantinople, making possible unprecedented wonders of art and architecture. And the emperors who ruled Byzantium enacted a saga of political intrigue and conquest as astonishing as anything in recorded history. Lost to the West is replete with stories of assassination, mass mutilation and execution, sexual scheming, ruthless grasping for power, and clashing armies that soaked battlefields with the blood of slain warriors numbering in the tens of thousands.

How the West was Lost charts how over the last 50 years the most advanced and advantaged countries of the world have squandered their dominant position through a sustained catalogue of fundamentally flawed economic policies. It is these decisions that, along the way, have resulted in an economic and geo-political see-saw, which is now poised to tip in favour of the emerging world. By forging closer ties with the emerging economies, rethinking trade barriers, overhauling their tax systems to encourage savings rather than ravenous consumption, and specifically addressing the three essential ingredients for growth (capital, labour and technology) it might yet still be possible for the West to firmly get back in the race.

Allegory, myth, satire - all three components are here in rich measure as we watch the sudden appearance of a railroad, complete with train, conductor, and new settlers, on the front step of Perdue's home. Then we watch the miraculous overnight contruction of a nearby town, followed by the madness of the First World War fought on the Prairie before Perdue's horrified eyes. We move on through the Dirty Thirties and the wind that blew the land away until 'herds of cattle, mooing plaintively, tumbled through the sky that was no longer sky.' And we move through modern times into the future as the ageless Perdue seeks safety for his wife and child.

In 2018 EP published the original That Hideous Strength: how the West was lost; the book originated as lecture notes author Melvin Tinker prepared for a conference in Jerusalem that year. That edition deliberately had no footnotes and was as compact as possible to appeal to a wide audience. As well as unpacking in more detail some of the ideas of cultural Marxists and the way their strategies are being worked out in our society, the author has also sought to put more flesh on what the Church's response might look like by drawing attention to what has been called 'the Benedict Option' and developing the concept proposed by Charles Taylor"€"the 'social imaginary.' This version includes a Postscript on the rise of 'Black Lives Matter' following the death of George Floyd.

This book relates the historical story of the westward expansion of this country to the Pacific Ocean. As the ever increasing population moved west to create new settlements, homesteaders stretched across the open land as well. It traces:# How our Founding Fathers carefully crafted the Constitution to limit the powers of the Federal Government:# How the American Revolution War debt played an important part in the crafting of the Constitution:How Supreme Court decisions have either altered or reinforced the concept and foundation laid down by our Founding Fathers of defined, limited federal powers:# How the different bureaus of the Federal Government have expanded their power over this same land thus eroded the concept of limited Federal government our Founding Fathers so carefully set forth in the Constitution:# How the different states no longer have their sovereignty that was originally guaranteed:# How even the Supreme Court has taken decisions out of context and compounded the problem thus reinforcing the power of these different bureaus over our land as well as the fabric of our lives-none of which would have been approved by our Founding Fathers.
