Promotional Information

Let a thousand flowers bloom, on the too rare occasions when they do, but for the weeds give me the pruning shears of Peter Heinegg any day. He does it again in this new collection, slicing through the sloppy conventional pieties that drape over and choke off the serious discussion of culture. -Jack Miles, author of God: A Biography Never have such a broad range and deep well of historical occurrences, contemporary illustrations, and artistic examples been so relentlessly enlisted in a forced march of lock-step determination to drag humanity to own up to its follies, foibles, vanities, and atrocities. [Heinegg's] high standards form not a City on a Hill but a mighty hammer that smashes what seems to be the essential evil of everything human. -John M. Phelan, professor emeritus of media and politics at Fordham University, New York City, and founding director of their Public Interest Communications Graduate Program
