"Professor Baskerville has written what well may be the most important book of 2017

-- he has written a masterly and authoritative account of how "sexual radicalism" has infected and transformed culture, politics, and the legal system. The entire narrative is supported by exhaustive research among scholars on both sides of the debate about the impact of feminist and homosexual activism on the entire criminal justice system which Baskerville sees as creating an entire network of self-serving agents enforcing laws that ignore the presumption of innocence, due process, and public transparency. Baskerville also shows with jaw-dropping clarity how "no-fault" divorces laws have allowed the intrusion of federal and state government so far into our private lives that "privacy" no longer exists. Single-parent families, in essence, have been promoted by government intrusion and the star chamber demands of "child support" which can so easily end up with the incarceration of fathers by ideologically-driven family courts. Both the government and the divorce industry have a financial interest in the increasing growth of single-parent families and the removal of the father. Brilliant and compelling, The New Politics of Sex issues an​ urgent plea that we cut the Gordian Knot of our radically sexualized culture and polity."  Deal Hudson, President, Morley Institute for Religion and Culture, and former publisher of Crisis magazine

Keynote Address

Ruth Institute Summit on the Sexual Revolution

Lake Charles, Louisiana, April 2019

​"I could not put this endlessly fascinating book down after opening it. It reveals how due-process violations and anti-male bias pervade family and divorce courts, and how the breakdown of the family due to no-fault divorce is costly to taxpayers, even as the welfare state fuels it further. It describes how a suffocating climate of political correctness in academia has kept the public in the dark about these abuses."  

​                        HANS BADER, Competitive Enterprise Institute

The New Politics of Sex is a brilliant, long-needed diagnosis of the deliberately fostered collapse of the institutions of the West. It is a must-read for anyone who has authority (parents, pastors, teachers, politicians, administrators, judges, police, doctors, and more). Never has humankind been up against so darkly brilliant and pervasive an enemy as the one Baskerville unveils. Purchase as many as you can to distribute, and write about it, blog about it, talk about it.”

The First Complete Political Analysis of the Sexual Revolution​​

Sexuality has exploded everywhere throughout our society and is radically altering our culture and institutions.  But what is the effect of radical sexual ideology on our government and civic life?  What is the effect on our freedom and civil liberties?  The New Politics of Sex is the first book that seeks to understand the impact of sexual politics on our public life.  The results are illuminating and sometimes disturbing.
