If you do, you will read some of these books written by dead white males. Not because I think their viewpoint is correct or laudable, but because in the past, unfortunately, only white men had access to education and leisure time necessary to create art. Therefore, their contribution to Western Civ which is currently passing away is the most important.
Of course women and minorities should be represented when the quality of their work is high. I mean compared to historical standards, whatever you might define those to be.
Writers of English Series
