The Last Men Essays from the Recent Past

About the Last Men

The Last Men is an imprint of Tower Press Books devoted to publishing the best essays and treatises of the recent past. Focusing on the humanities, The Last Men aims to publish individual talents who defiantly continue the high intellectual tradition of the West in the face of academia’s retreat from truth. We print works that not only educate the reader, but invigorate and ennoble him as well.

The Last Men got its name from the notion of how modernity has whittled down knowledge, reason, virtue, and culture until only a few good souls remain to guard the old truths from the threat of barbarism. These are The Last Men.
