"As an ideological refresher on what the West got right, Shapiro's book gets the job done." -- The Washington Post Shapiro cavorts through 3,000 years of intellectual history in the span of about 250 pages, offering a perspicuous, "user-friendly" dive into some of our civilization's biggest ideas. -- The Washington Examiner "Ben Shapiro knows the power of his voice. He stands up and fights for what he believes with time-tested ideas. The Right Side of History is thoughtful and well-reasoned - exactly what Shapiro's critics don't want you to hear." -- Nikki Haley, former premanent representative of the U.S. Mission of the United Nations. Human beings have never had it better than we have it now in the West. So why are we on the verge of throwing it all away?In 2016, the New York Times bestselling author Ben Shapiro spoke at the University of California&;Berkeley. Hundreds of police officers were required to protect his speech. What was so frightening about Shapiro? He came to argue that Western civilization is in the midst of a crisis of purpose and ideas; that we have let grievances replace our sense of community, and political expediency limit our individual rights; that we are teaching our kids that their emotions matter more than rational debate; and that the only meaning in life is arbitrary and subjective.As a society, we are forgetting that almost everything great that has ever happened in history happened because of people who believed in both Judeo-Christian values and in the Greek-born power of reason. In The Right Side of History, Shapiro sprints through more than 3,500 years, dozens of philosophers, and the thicket of modern politics to show how our freedoms are built upon the twin notions that every human being is made in God&;s image and that human beings were created with reason that is capable of exploring God&;s world.We have these values to thank for the birth of science, the dream of progress, human rights, prosperity, peace, and artistic beauty. Jerusalem and Athens built America, ended slavery, defeated the Nazis and the Communists, lifted billions from poverty, and gave billions more spiritual purpose. Yet we are in the process of abandoning Judeo-Christian values and Greek natural law, watching our civilization collapse into age-old tribalism, individualistic hedonism, and moral subjectivism. We believe we can satisfy ourselves with intersectionality, scientific materialism, progressive politics, authoritarian governance, or nationalistic solidarity.We can&;t.The West is special, and in The Right Side of History, Ben Shapiro bravely explains how we have lost sight of the moral purpose that drives each of us to be better and the sacred duty to work together for the greater good.. Ben Shapiro is editor-in-chief of The Daily Wire and host of "The Ben Shapiro Show," the top conservative podcast in the nation. A New York Times bestselling author, Shapiro is a graduate of Harvard Law School, and an Orthodox Jew. His work has been profiled in nearly every major American publication, and he has appeared as the featured speaker at many conservative events on campuses nationwide, several of those appearances targeted by progressive and "Antifa" activists..

This Book Makes Me Feel So Proud To Be An American! What an essential voice in the political commentary world! I loved Ben’s book “Bullies” and I’m loving this book too so far. I'm on my second reading. You don’t have to agree with everything he says to learn something from him. His arguments and logic are airtight. This book’s thesis is an important one. It IS Reason and Religious belief that makes this country great. Ben’s knowledge of classic Western philosophy is impressive. The scholarship is at times broad and deep. This book dabbles with some of the most powerful ideas in history, and it’s so beautifully written. It reminds me of Richard Tarnas' book, "The Passion of The Western Mind" (where he spends the first half the 500-page book talking about the massive influence of Judeo-Christian values as well). However, I like Ben's style and application to the contemporary American experience. Regarding political speculations, I really hope he does not run for VP. As I read Ben's book, I hear the tone and register in his voice as if I were listening to his podcast: I never want it to end. It would be a shame if The Ben Shapiro Show had to shut down. I want him and his family to live a Long, Prosperous, and Fulfilling life. We need to keep hearing his voice and perspective—without all the constraints being a political leader brings. This is Ben’s best book so far and definitely worth reading ASAP! P. S., If you want to see how consistently good Ben's work is, go to his YoutTube channel and check out Episode 207 (Nov. 10, 2016). Currently, he has only 286 views on it. However, he's still just as insightful and an interesting today with over 658,000 subscribers and around 100K views on his latest videos.
Valuable review of western civilization Kindle edition was released last night and I’ve already finished it. Excellent overview of how the roots of Jewish morality and Greek philosophy of reason led to the development of western civilization, and why we need to adhere to both to preserve goodness and liberty
Every College Student Should Read This Book If you don't know where you've come from, you'll have a hard time knowing where you're headed. Ben gives a great presentation on the origins and development of Western Civilization. Highly recommend!!
Shapiro Does it Again The Right Side of History is historically accurate and philosophically consistent. It stays on the academic and logical side of the delicate balance between patriotic nationalism for no other reason than ‘Merica and a reasonable argument that indeed (as he contends in the book), “As a society, we are forgetting that almost everything great that has ever happened in history happened because of people who believe in both Judeo-Christian values and the Greek-born power of reason.” Shapiro has once again proved his argument through reason and answered his critics with undeniable truth. It’s far more than meager glorification of Western civilization. He spends ample time explain how we got where we are in the West and why the left wants to destroy the idea of democracy. An incredible read which was well worth reading the entire book the day it was released.
Ein Eilmarsch durch die geistige Entwicklung der „westlichen Zivilisation“ Ben Shapiro ist für alle die ihn - nicht kennen – einer der rhetorisch begabtesten konservativen Kommentatoren der USA und mit Mitte 30 auch einer der jüngeren. Shapiro der seiner selbst Identifikation nach orthodoxem Juden ist (im deutschen Sprachraum würde man ihn wohl eher als gläubig oder praktizierend bezeichnen, das Wort orthodox weckt hier wohl bei den meisten andere Assoziationen) argumentiert immer von einem Standpunkt der seine Religiosität mit konservativ/freiheitsorientierten Werten verbindet. So auch in diesem Werk: Er sieht zwei Gründungsort des modernen Westens Jerusalem (für die jüdisch-christliche Tradition) und Athen (fü die rational logische Tradition) und untersucht wie von diesen aus „der Westen“ wie wir ihn heute kennen sich entwickelte. In „The right Side of History“ stellt er im Eilmarsch die wichtigsten Denker und Entwicklungen dieser beiden Tradition von ca 3500 vor Christus bis heute vor und argumentiert wo von Shapiros Standpunkt aus Fehler in der heutigen Rezeption und im Umgang mit diesen Werten und Ideen gemacht wurden. Man muss dabei beachten, dass Shapiro ein (intelligenter) politischer Kommentator ist und kein Philosoph oder Forscher. In seiner Darstellung geht es um Verständlichkeit und Lesbarkeit und die Darlegung seiner Sicht auf die Welt, nicht um akribische Offenlegung von Wurzeln und das Verfolgen von Gedankensträngen im Detail. Er bleibt daher meist eher an der Oberfläche, doch seine Ausführungen laden dazu ein sich mit den genannten Denken und Philosophen sowie Gedanken und Ideen näher zu befassen. Aus Sicht des Rezensenten mach dies das Buch zwar auf der einen Seite nicht unbedingt zum tiefschürfensten Werk zu dieser Thematik, aber gleichzeitig den Text extrem gut lesbar und auch für „Einsteiger“ geeignet. Shapiros Werk könnte man durchaus als Einladung zur Disputation sehen oder wohl eher noch zur Auseinandersetzung mit einer konservativ religiös fundierten Sicht auf die Welt wie sie größere Teile der Bevölkerung der USA durchaus noch pflegen. Aus dieser Perspektive mag das Werk auch für Menschen, die mit Shapiros Meinung und Standpunkt nicht übereinstimmen von Interesse sein. Der eine oder andere wird sich aber ohne Zweifel mit der Idee der USA als „der besten und entwickelten Gesellschaft die jemals existierte“, der Vorstellung „City on the hill“ Ausfluss des Gedankens des amerikanischen Exzeptionalismus sicher etwas schwerer anfreunden, da uns diese Art von Denken eher fremd geworden ist.
Thought provoking and enlightening A brilliant history book on the foundation of morality and reason in western civilization. It is very lean and dense at the same time. As a non-western I have understood and learned how to articulate my appreciation of the western civilization and have definitely been well enlightened by the lessons of this history’s failures and success.
Everyone should read this book! I don't usually finish a book of non-fiction in one sitting, but this one I could NOT put down! Extremely well written and articulated, Ben gets his points across with finesse and ease. This book is important not just for those living in the United States but the world over. As a Canadian citizen, I am witness to a governmental and social system that is a prime example of the dangers Ben lays out for a country devoid of religious purpose and Reason. Keep up the great work, #Shapiro2020
A must read. Very interesting and insightful Ben Shapiro gives an excellent insight as to how Judeo-Christian values, Greek thought and the combination of logic, reason and faith are the foundations of Western Civilisation. It also speaks on how we on the verge of throwing all that is good about todays society down the drain. It is well written and accurate in its telling of philosophy and history. I Definitely recommend for those who are interested in religion, philosophy, politics and history or those who just want to learn something new.
Great book for everyone not just people living in USA Hi extremely well researched and written book on how our predecessors made The West great and how we should keep it. The historical review of evolution of ideas was the most valuable aspect of the book to me as it delivers easy to read and understand summary of Judaeo-Christian and Greek influences on humanity and why we should not discard it so easily in today's world.
Interesting book Interesting book with some very well made points.
