Euro-American Men

A great article that I read last year referenced a book called "The Great New Wilderness Debate." (1988)  The authors described themselves in the introduction as:

"Euro-American men [whose] cultural legacy is patriarchal western civilization in its current post-colonial, globally hegemonic form."

Nice of them to tell everybody up front what filters they brought to writing the book!

But really, that's us, isn't it?  We modern American men of a certain age?  It does kind of sum us up.
