In his first major book, conservative columnist Steyn takes on the anti-Americanism that fuels both Old Europe and radical Islam. America, Steyn argues, will have to stand alone. The future, Steyn shows, belongs to the fecund and the confident. The Islamists are both, while the West--wedded to a multiculturalism that undercuts its own confidence, a welfare state that nudges it toward sloth and self-indulgence, and a childlessness that consigns it to oblivion--is looking ever more like the ruins of a civilization. Europe is almost certainly a goner. The future, if the West has one, belongs to America alone--with maybe its cousins in brave Australia. But America can survive, prosper, and defend its freedom only if it continues to believe in itself, in the sturdier virtues of self-reliance (not government), in the centrality of family, and in the conviction that our country really is the world's last best hope.--From publisher description.

Anyone without the capacity to think for himself will love having his thinking provided for him by this author.

As always, Mr. Steyn hits it bull's eye! Although this book is a bit old, it has everything to do with what we are experiencing today in this country and around the world. There is an excellent interview with him here: ): http://extremewisdom.blogs.com/extremewisdom/2008/03/mark-steyn---am.html NOTICE: Attempts to censor (“Report this”) my comments will be fiercely fought under the aegis of American Libraries’ beloved principles: Freedom of Speech, Freedom to Read, Intellectual Freedom.

Mark Steyn has taken time to put together an understanding of what radical Islam is trying to do to the world.

Controversial book. Lively writing. Although the argument is over the top, it raises a number of questions to think deeply about.
