Twenty-first-century Western man is living through the reprise of an ancient and epic historical tragedy-the paroxysms of a dying civilization.

Into the Night is a powerful, unflinching review of Western civilization's pilgrimage into a new Dark Age. Exhaustively researched, meticulously written, and panoramic in scope, it merges impressive scholarship with astonishing and original insights forged in daunting real-world experience. History's greatest historians and sociologists-Arnold Toynbee, Pitirim Sorokin, Christopher Dawson, and Oswald Spengler among them-are deployed as scholarly cannonade. Ivy Scarborough draws on diverse skills and extraordinary, far-ranging experiences-from the perspectives of eight war zones, university professor of international studies, history and political science, commentator, and lawyer-to put these scholars' views into the context of twenty-first-century events and our culture's rampant self-absorption.

If it is possible to arrest the decline, the citizens of the West must be willing to courageously face bitter realities and acknowledge the West's abandonment of core beliefs that made it the freest, most prosperous, and most powerful civilization in history. With uncompromising defiance of political correctness, ideological and partisan slants, prejudices, and cultural conformity, the author gives no quarter. Scarborough panders to no group or institution and defers to no individual. His compelling, authoritative logic relentlessly strips away self-delusion, denial, and superficiality to confront the culture's heart of darkness-illuminating its peril in order to boldly propose the one strategy that might alter Western civilization's catastrophic course.
