Nationally best-selling author (The Tyranny of Big Tech), constitutional lawyer, and U.S. senator for the state of Missouri argues that the character of men and the male virtue that goes along with it is a necessary ingredient to a functioning society and a healthy, free republic.
A free society that despises manhood will not remain free.
The American Founders believed that a republic depends on certain masculine virtues. Senator Josh Hawley thinks they were right. In a bold new book, he calls on American men to stand up and embrace their God-given responsibility as husbands, fathers, and citizens.
No republic has ever survived without men of character to defend what is just and true. Starting with the wisdom of the ancients, from the Greek and Roman philosophers to Jesus of Nazareth, and drawing on the lessons of American history, Hawley identifies the defining strengths of men, including responsibility, bravery, fidelity, and leadership.
As Theodore Roosevelt declared, the “very existence of the state depends on the character of its citizens…. I am for business. But I am for manhood first.” Hawley shows why the foolhardy assault on masculinity in education, the media, the workplace, and every level of government is an assault on freedom itself.
Practical, down to earth, and urgent, Manhood: The Masculine Virtues America Needs is required reading for every American patriot.
