Is America a source of pride, as Americans have long held, or shame, as Progressives allege? Beneath an innocent exterior, are our lives complicit in a national project of theft, expropriation, oppression, and murder, or is America still the hope of the world?

#1 New York Times Bestseller

Is America a source of pride, as Americans have long held, or shame, as Progressives allege? Beneath an innocent exterior, are our lives complicit in a national project of theft, expropriation, oppression, and murder, or is America still the hope of the world?

Dinesh D'Souza says these questions are no mere academic exercise. It is the Progressive view that is taught in our schools, that is preached by Hollywood, and that shapes the policies of the Obama administration. If America is a force for inequality and injustice in the world, its power deserves to be diminished; if traditional America is based on oppression and theft, then traditional America must be reformed—and the federal government can do the reforming.

In America: Imagine a World without Her D'Souza offers a passionate and sharply reasoned defense of America, knocking down every important accusation made by Progressives against our country.

Provocative in its analysis, stunning in its conclusions, Dinesh D'Souza's America will be the most talked about book of the year.

America: Imagine a World Without Her 3.7 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1040 reviews.

Fabulous book, very well written, well reasoned by the author who uncovers the goodness of America and the evidence is solid and stands up powerfully to the far left lies regarding this great country. Americans, especially, should understand their country's great history and what our founders had to go through so we can live the way we do with the freedoms we now enjoy. It is a wakeup call to the great evil the progressives would have you believe for their present day sinister plot to destroy America. I went to the movie which is also spectacular. D'Souza did a masterful job with both book and movie. It is truly an eye opener so read the book or go to the movie or do both as it is well worth the money.

This is an interesting read as it's written from the perspective of a legal immigrant who has chosen to assimilate into American culture.

I listened to the audio version of the book, and then went to the new movie based on it. Dinesh D’Souza has created a tribute and defense of our nation unique to his perspective as an immigrant, an intellectual, and a sincerely spiritual man. It is common knowledge that our citizens are sharply divided along political and cultural lines. Have you ever wondered why? Is there a group of people who benefit from this polarization and division? Do we have influential people in America who want to tear down America? Who embrace national suicide? Mr. D’Souza interviews many of these people, and you will be shocked by what they say! This book and movie is scary, funny, inspiring, and thought-provoking.

Very thought provoking, even if you are hard core left it's worth at least learning the perspective.  I notice all the one star reviewers don't come up with actual reasoning for the review but only resort to name calling.  I doubt that most of them read the book as it looks like they posted primarily to sling mud.

This is really good! It makes you stop and think about things that we take for granted. Anyone who doesn't love this great country should go somewhere else to live! The world is definitely a better place because of God Blessing America!

All of the negative review of this book have nothing but baseless and political disagreements given by people who could never objectively read a book even if they were paid to. Read this book yourself and take from it what you must, but disagreeing with the premise does not automatically make this a bad book or the ideas involved bad. Are we not all told to be accepting of all points of view and lend anyone the audience to use their Right to Speak Freely? Do not get caught up in the misguided and emotional reviews of those who dislike the content in this book. Both the reader and professional reviews are nothing more than an attempt to shut you out of the ideas contained within the pages of this book. Be your own person and read it, then draw your conclusions from there.

Wake up people, the country we know and love is eroding under our noses due to those we have elected. We have been deceived!

Obviously, readers will find this book really good or really bad. I suspect those findings, especially by the latter, are largely from the progressive, socialist left who only want to trash the author, have never opened the book.

I had to read this after all the one star anti-endorsements...what are you all so fearful of? It gives a clear and concise argument. It is obvious they never read the book as there is no alarmist jargon, no extremist tendencies. You read it and make the judgement for yourself...is it a good argument, or is it not-you decide

Provocative, interesting and well researched.  It will spark many debates about America's past, present and future.

How can these people writing reviews say that this is his opinion and not fact? The very people that have been perpetrating the progressive movement are directly quoted.  They freely admit it.

Hey you clowns that rated this book one star... maybe you should read the book... instead of trying to pull down the rating...why not be honest? You are the looser in the end...

Thanks to the moronic decision by Costco to pull this book from their shelves, I drove 20 minutes to the nearest Barnes & Noble to purchase a hard copy of this wonderful book. I have a Nook but I wanted to have this book for my kids to read and for me to pass it along (though I will probably buy a few for friends and family for Christmas). Dinesh D'Souza isn't a perfect man and it's clear he doesn't bat for Obama's team. But he is a man who lived a good deal of his life in a country without freedom and he makes no apologies for loving America...he chose to live here, after all. The book, like the movie, is a rebuttal to what we have learned about US History. Were the lands "stolen" from the Native Americans and did the Europeans purposefully bring disease to the New World in order to commit genocide? Did America "steal" the West from Mexico? Is America the only country that had slaves and is there another country or civilization in the history of the World that fought a war against its citizenry to end it? America isn't a perfect country, but it's a darn good one...and to have our leaders in government, the educators of our children and the media try and destroy our country from within is really scary. Dinesh D'Souza's "America" gives us the arsenal we need to defend this great country and if you have children, this book should be required reading at your house.

I just saw the movie and I'm now reading the book. The book is clearly presented and the color photos in the book are very helpful. D'Souza offers a refreshingly balanced look at the reasons behind the decline of our beautiful country and he is not afraid to debate people like domestic terrorist, Bill Ayers. D'Souza is gracious and fair in his pursuit of the truth regarding the causes of America's rise and its growing decline.My favorite movie of the 20th century is "It's a Wonderful Life" where George Bailey get's to find out what life would be like if he had never been born. In Dinesh D'Souza's book, we all get to imagine what life might be like had America never existed. A must-read!

This book was very good. He, the author, is knowledgeable and explains things very clearly. Everyone should read this. Too many Americans do not even understand our history yet this legal immigrant can explain it so wonderfully. Our country, our forefathers were inspired to give us all freedom. We should not let our current government take this away and you'll see why once you read this book or see the movie. I am inspired and hope you are too.

Absolutely thoughtprovoking---well written so even the out of touch can actually grasp what's going on. If you love your country, be open minded enough to read, watch, and listen!

With so much progressive propoganda in education and the media its a relief to read a different perspective

Couldn't put it down. Refreshing to find a Pro America book that captures the real history and not revisionist history of the extreme left.

Unfortunately, nearly everyone who gave this only one star provided, unlike D'Souza, little to no substantiation for their views. Be wise and informed; READ prior to making a judgment. Thank you!

Absolutely stellar. Should be required reading at every university.

America is our country; it's appalling that we're so selectively fed warped views of its founding and growth. Well-reasoned, thoroughly researched, and entertaining in its presentation, "America" is an excellent first step to recovery for victims of public schools.
