Overview

Someday soon, you might wake up to the call to prayer from a muezzin. Europeans already are. And liberals will still tell you that "diversity is our strength"-while Talibanic enforcers cruise Greenwich Village burning books and barber shops, the Supreme Court decides sharia law doesn't violate the "separation of church and state," and the Hollywood Left decides to give up on gay rights in favor of the much safer charms of polygamy.

If you think this can't happen, you haven't been paying attention, as the hilarious, provocative, and brilliant Mark Steyn-the most popular conservative columnist in the English-speaking world-shows to devastating effect.

The future, as Steyn shows, belongs to the fecund and the confident. And the Islamists are both, while the West is looking ever more like the ruins of a civilization.

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.

Mark Steyn's America Alone is laugh-out-loud funny-but it will also change the way you look at the world.

What People are Saying About This

John OSullivan
"Mark Steyn is the funniest writer now living. But don't be distracted by the brilliance of his jokes. They are the neon lights advertising a profound and sad insight: America is almost alone in resisting both the suicide of the West and the suicide bombing of radical Islamism."--(John O'Sullivan, editor at large, National Review, and author of The President, the Pope, and the Prime Minister)
Michelle Malkin
"Mark Steyn is a human sandblaster. This book provides a powerful, abrasive, high-velocity assault on encrusted layers of sugarcoating and whitewash over the threat of Islamic imperialism. Do we in the West have the will to prevail?"--(Michelle Malkin, New York Times bestselling author of Unhinged)

Mark Steyn articulates the real problems facing our world today with uncanny zing and backs up his theories with statistics and trends that will make you sit up and think! I recommend this book or audio CD very highly and in fact, have started buying copies for friends and family as gifts.
