Review:

"Newell's anthology covers an astonishing range and is a constant source of ideas about a neglected, almost a suppressed, virtue." -- --Kenneth Minogue, London School of Economics

"Newell's anthology covers an astonishing range and is a constant source of ideas about a neglected, almost a suppressed, virtue." -- --Kenneth Minogue, London School of Economics

"What Is a Man? violates all of the norms of political correctness by reminding us that men have specific virtues -- virtues that are neither the watered-down qualities of niceness and compassion nor aimless and violent aggression. This rich anthology will be an eye-opener for many, but particularly for the young men who are most confused about how they are to act in life." -- --Francis Fukuyama, George Mason University
