About the Author

Lee Harris entered Emory University at age fourteen and graduated summa cum laude. After years spent pursuing diverse interests, including a stint at divinity school, several years writing mystery novels, and a career as a glazier, he began writing philosophical articles that captured the imagination of readers all over the world. The author of three of the most controversial and widely shared pieces in the history of Policy Review, Harris has emerged as one of the most talked-about writers of recent times. He lives in Stone Mountain, Georgia.


Daniel Pipes Lee Harris has emerged as the reigning philosopher of 9/11, the thinker most willing and capable of thinking through the implications of what he understands to be a world-historical event such as the French Revolution or World War I. With relentless logic and with help from such thinkers as Plato and Hegel, he dissects the West's strong and weak points, then unsparingly draws conclusions about the deep-seated changes that need be made to achieve victory over a ruthless foe. Those conclusions, often disturbing, will prompt much reflection. "Civilization and Its Enemies" is indispensable for anyone who wants to understand what is going on in the world today. Lee Harris explains why people are trying to kill us -- and why so many in the West are reluctant to face reality.
Arnold Beichman author of "Nine Lies About America" A learned, imaginative study of the new world of the twenty-first century and the opening gun, 9/11, of World War III. We know in our gut and in our rhetoric that our world is changed forever -- but how and why and what has changed is what Lee Harris's brilliant analysis is all about.
