The Sexual Revolution, underway for decades now, is a rolling revolution—a set of unfinishable ambitions, all affecting marriage and family life. The ideologies of feminists, contemporary liberals, and sexual liberation theorists form a "rolling revolution" that has sunk deeply into our culture and political regime. As a result, marriage and family life suffer.
How do we curb or even stop the "rolling revolution"? Read or listen to Scott Yenor's new book The Recovery of Family Life to find out.
The Recovery of Family Life combines a focus on first principles with practical advice for Americans, including lawmakers, about how to change the current deadly direction of our culture and policies.
Why You Should Read This Book
The last half century has been devastating for American family life, to the point where one in every two American children will now be raised apart from their own married parents at some point in their lives. Scott Yenor’s The Recovery of Family Life unveils the intellectual sources of our failed family regime and articulates a provocative new vision for family renewal in this century. Above all, he shows us how we must put children at the center of marriage and family life in the twenty-first century in this important, incisive, and thought-provoking book.

You will not agree with everything in this book. And that’s one reason to read it. Scott Yenor is provocative in the best sense, and The Recovery of Family Life will force you to think critically and deeply. Modern sexual and familial practices have come at a cost. Yenor is willing to consider those costs, identify the underlying ideologies supporting modern practices, and propose a better way forward.

Is liberal democracy ever finished working out its twin principles of liberty and equality? Scott Yenor’s important new study explores the three interlocking elements of the sexual revolution—radical feminism, liberal neutrality, and sexual liberation—to show how this ‘rolling revolution’ undermines the foundations of a healthy and moderate political order. His research is comprehensive, and his argument at once courageous and humane. His book should be required reading for every young woman and man who seeks to understand the mysterious interplay of nature and nurture that makes for a happy life.
