The American family used to be the fundamental institution of our stable, liberty-loving, and very successful society. It is the essential building block of a free society with limited government. In the last hundred years, the American family has been attacked, debased, maligned, slandered, and vilified by every facet of society.
Who Killed the American Family explains how changes in the law, in court decisions, in the culture, in education, and in entertainment have eroded the once-precious institution. Any one of these factors would not have been enough to impact our families, but together they added up to a mighty force.
Veteran conservative activist and thought leader Phyllis Schlafly not only exposes the tactical charge the Left has implemented, but she offers hope and a plan for stopping anti-marriage incentives and how to restore in our culture sacred nature of the family unit.
Phyllis Schlafly is a national leader of the conservative movement since the publication of her best-selling 1964 book, A Choice Not An Echo. Author of 20 books, Schlafly has written a monthly newsletter since 1967 called The Phyllis Schlafly Report and a syndicated column, which appears in 100 newspapers. Her daily radio commentaries are heard daily on over 600 stations, and her radio talk show on education called Eagle Forum Live is heard weekly on 90 stations. She lives in St. Louis.
