Architects of the Culture of Death0 out of 5
In scholarly, yet reader-friendly prose, DeMarco and Wiker examine the roots of the Culture of Death by introducing 23 of its architects, including Ayn Rand, Charles Darwin, Karl Marx, Jean-Paul Sartre, Alfred Kinsey, Margaret Sanger, Jack Kevorkian, and Peter Singer. This is not a book without hope. The personalism of John Paul II is an illuminating thread that runs through Architects, serving as a hopeful antidote.
