Overview

The year is 2012. America's global war on terror is at a fateful crossroads. The rise of Laskar-e-Muhammad, the most audacious and sophisticated terrorist network the world has ever seen, imperils America's national survival. As President Middlefield and top deputy Jim Constance rally America to confront the threat, worldwide criticism hampers their efforts, many detractors arguing for a policy of appeasement. Dr. Jane Crandall Offman, high profile professor and social commentator, joins Islam's intellectual elite in undermining the war on terror. Denounced in the court of world opinion and outmaneuvered by Laskar-e-Muhammad on all fronts, America finds herself abandoned and isolated. With Constance as his only trusted adviser, President Middlefield desperately tries to prevent a final act of terror that will result in the unthinkable: The ultimate doom of the United States and her collapse as a civilization.

A factual epilogue is appended to the conclusion of America 2012 to demonstrate the fictional elements of the novel have their basis in fact. A riveting political narrative in the tradition of The Ugly American, America 2012 is both a futuristic thriller and the cautionary tale of our times written by two authorities in the field.
