Reviews

"A well-researched, powerfully argued, and profound account of the deepest sources of our current cultural crises. Wise and courageous, Mary Eberstadt has written an indispensable book for understanding our time."--Leon R. Kass, professor emeritus, Committee on Social Thought, The University of Chicago"Primal Screams is a deeply thought-provoking reflection on human nature and the fate of our republic."--Mary Ann Glendon, Learned Hand Professor of Law, Harvard University"Some basic questions of identity have overtaken Western politics in the 21st century, and before they can be addressed, they must be understood. With her characteristic clarity and breadth of learning, Mary Eberstadt offers a powerfully persuasive guide to why we are beset by these challenges, and how to take them on."--Yuval Levin, editor of National Affairs"Mary Eberstadt proves, yet again, that she is one of America's most insightful--as well as compassionate--social analysts."--George Weigel, Distinguished Senior Fellow and William E. Simon Chair in Catholic Studies, Ethics and Public Policy Center"Mary Eberstadt understands 'identity politics' better than its practitioners--and any of its critics to date. She takes seriously the question of why so many people feel a need for the sense of belonging that identity politics seeks to provide. Her answer is terrifying--a loss that human beings of modern times have suffered, but of which we have been almost entirely unaware. Until now."--Tod Lindberg, author of The Heroic Heart: Greatness Ancient and Modern"It is scarcely a foregone conclusion that our society will return to sanity on questions of sexual morality and marriage. But if we do, then prophets like Mary Eberstadt will be celebrated in song and story."--Robert P. George, McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence, Princeton University"In Primal Screams, Mary Eberstadt responds to the deepest cries of the wounded souls of our time. Read it and share it."--Kathryn Jean Lopez, National Review Institute

"Primal Screams is and should be controversial. It is also quite brilliant. I can think of few books in recent memory that eschew academic and journalistic orthodoxy in as cutting and well defended a way. Anyone interested in the roots of our current identity-driven dilemmas would be remiss in not reading it."--The Federalist"Eberstadt is a shrewd, thoughtful analyst of our culture, and scrutinizes her subject through a nonpartisan lens....Primal Screams is, then, important for readers of all political and ideological complexions."--Washington Examiner"Mary Eberstadt manages the nearly impossible: finding something new--and worthwhile--to say about identity politics....If we see more books about identity politics in the near future, and doubtless we will, they will have to grapple with Eberstadt's argument, and take a look through the lens she provides."--Washington Free Beacon"Mary Eberstadt's thesis is exactly right, and she backs it up with evidence."--Public Discourse

"Eberstadt's work is not only for conservatives but also for everyone who thinks about contemporary society and finds himself puzzled, worried, or in a foreboding frame of mind about the alarming spike in identity politics as well as suicide, depression, substance abuse, and loneliness."--National Review

"Vintage Eberstadt: clearly argued with conviction....This is a good and helpful book, and the responses of Dreher and company are thought-provoking and constructive....Eberstadt's greatest strength is her consistent calm and compassionate tone. As such, she offer us a model for how political discussion should be pursued."--The Gospel Coalition"An incredibly influential, intellectual, precise commentary about current culture, philosophy, and the fate of the post-modern man."--Jonathan Van Maren
, LifeSite News"Insightful."--The Conway Daily Sun

"I wait for Mary Eberstadt's books the way some people used to wait for the next Harry Potter installment."--Fr. John Hollowell, Pastor of Annunciation and St. Paul's Catholic Church"Primal Screams provides a cogent, prophetic take on how and why it is that so many well-educated, materially well-off people -- after all, this is mostly a Western political development -- do not seem to know who they are."--Black Christian News Network One

"A cogent, prophetic take on how and why it is that so many well-educated, materially well-off people...do not seem to know who they are."--The Christian Post
