The New Politics of Sex
Sexual Revolution, Civil Liberties,
Growth of Governmental Power
A book published in 2017 by
Stephen Baskerville, PhD
"I had postponed reading [this book], probably because I had a sense that it would be devastating — which it is. This is the most frightening book I have read in years. Baskerville is relentless in showing how our society has waged war against marriage, and how little judicial protection is available today to those of us who resist the attack."

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 and the first written by a qualified political scientist (other than academic-ideologues). The results are illuminating and highly disturbing.
"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."

What the Critics Say
"...a politically incorrect and outrageous book..."
ROBERT REILLY, Westminster 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.”

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."

“This is perhaps the most important policy book in years.”
“It's not often that books from academia are unputdownable and required reading but Baskerville makes a habit of writing such. … Baskerville is your academic's academic. No claim is undocumented, and yet most uncharacteristically of his scholastic brethren, he is eminently readable, which of course makes him a damned fine writer.”
“Oh man! Talk about letting the skunk out of the proverbial perspective bag. You can choose wisely when it comes to power games creating chaos, discord, and destruction hiding. I love other books from this man too! Good job again Stephen Baskerville. Thank you!”
“Baskerville has the courage to say what many "conservatives" think but are unwilling to admit out loud.”
“I’ve never felt compelled to write a review. This book along with “Taken Into Custody” are different. … These books represent the most rigorous and sober assessment of the dominant political ideology of the Anglo-Saxon West that I’ve come across. The books track the emergence, evolution and manifestations of this ideology and analyze its consequences. “The New Politics” more so than “Taken Into Custody” puts this ideology in civilizational context…. Both of these books are milestones in political analysis and, one day, during more aware times, they will be honored as such.
Besides a reader, I’m also a survivor of totalitarian communism. Growing up in Eastern Europe, I would lock the door and listen to broadcasts of The Voice of America for a chance to hear truths unadulterated by an oppressive ideology. How sad that, over the course of just two or three generations, America would succumb to an oppressive ideology herself.”
"Even if you think you already know about these issues, you will be stunned by many of the anecdotes and studies related by Baskerville.”
"Causes You To See The World Differently.
Baskerville shows how the “Politics of Sex” has infected nearly everything in modern society. After reading this book, you will see how so many issues in the daily news or in your everyday life are completely overrun by the politics of sex. For example, “domestic violence,” AIDS prevention efforts, the UN, the divorce industry... While the sexual revolution may have started with what seemed like a harmless bunch of hippies fornicating in the mud at Woodstock, today it has usurped power in nearly every major institution, and threatens to undo the fabric of our entire civilization."
