In spite of the review by the Publishers Weekly, people with an open mind who may feel that they are middle of the road pollitically should read this book. It has helped me, as an independant, understand some of the sweeping generalities I had felt that were fair but actually only enhance the slide to socialism in the US. Worth your time to read and think about. The review by the Libary Journal may not have read the book base on the alternatives they list in the review. Hopefully others who read the book, from either side of the issues will take the time and effort to objectively review the arguments put forward.

The sooner we stop deluding ourselves that eg. America is a shining city on a hill, God's anointed people, and other fantasies, the better off we'll be. Those needing evidence to do so need only look at our world-leading government and trade deficits, inability to get along with much of the world's Muslim populations, world's highest (and economy-weakening) health care system, floundering K-12 education system, deteriorating and inadequate infrastructure, enormous funds wasted on military, Homeland Security, and government surveillance of our citizenry, having caused the recent world-wide 'Great Recession,' and our paralyzed, bought-and-paid-for government.
