Review:
"Many of [Dalrymple's] meditations on culture and society...contain striking passages about the decay of societies that can be read with profit."

Jacob Heilbrunn, New York Times Book Review, 08/21/2005

Review:
"Dalrymple has, it must be stressed, written an urgent, important, almost an essential book. OUR CULTURE, WHAT'S LEFT OF IT needs to be read and acted on by policy-makers, by opinion-formers, and anyone who wants to grasp why Britain has become so much less pleasant a country in which to live. The book is elegantly written, conscientiously argued, provocative and fiercely committed....His measured polemics arouse disgust, shame and despair: they will shake many readers' views of their physical surroundings and cultural assumptions, and have an enriching power to improve the way that people think and act."

Times Literary Supplement, 10/28/2005
