Product Description

Monogamous marriage built civilization—will its collapse destroy it?

Author William Tucker's Marriage and Civilization takes readers on a journey though the history of the human race to demonstrate how a pattern of life-long, monogamous pairings has enabled humans to build modern civilization. Drawing extensively on biological, anthropological, evolutionary, cultural and historical evidence, Tucker makes the case that marriage is not only a desirable institution for societies, it's actually the bedrock of Western civilization.

Tucker makes many remarkable and eye-opening observations that highlight how quickly a society can unravel if and when the norms upon which it was built and by which it is upheld become lax. These observations challenge readers to consider what is going on in modern America and the world beyond. Written for the average reader rather than as a scholarly treatise or an original piece of anthropological research, Marriage and Civilization is an attempt by a reasonable, educated person to tackle some subjects that many scholars and academics in the field seem to find uncomfortable.
