In response to the ‘Black Lives Matter’ riots and protests, statues and national sites have been vandalised as a new, more extreme brand of leftist thought has consumed the old brand of left-liberalism. We have called this phenomenon of the illiberal left “Wokeshevism”, which describes its mixture of postmodernism, postcolonialism, identity politics, neo-Marxism, critical race theory, intersectionality, and the therapeutic mentality.

In this seminal book, various prominent authors offer insights into the woke revolution sweeping Western nations, including the United States and Australia. Among the 12 contributors to the chapters are renowned professors Robert P. George (Princeton), Steven Alan Sansom, James Allan, Gabriël A. Moens AM and Anthony Gray.
