Paul James

Author Paul Jamesabout this book: Two elderly men, frustrated by the education available to boys and young men in the Western world, build their own offshore schools and universities, The Modest Proposal Institute of the title, so they can return to the time when boys' education created inventive and dynamic men. It's a fictional coming-of-age story but is intended to add to the current discussion around male failure in Western schools. I became concerned about this subject when I saw how my son was being educated and how little effort was made to engage his interest – or any other regular boy. I became even more concerned when I saw what is offered to young people for reading today. I would never have read any of these books or comic books (Btw, my favorite author is Jane Austen so, no, I' don't dislike women writers) and I see this book, and the series that will follow, as a chance to re-engage teenage boys and younger men in reading.
