Overview

Jerry Gordon has done an invaluable service in this collection of interviews with some of the brightest minds of our time conducted between 2008 and 2012 for New English Review. These are remarkable people actively striving to defend and to define what is best in Western culture, including politicians such as Geert Wilders and Arieh Eldad, intellectuals such as Ibn Warraq, Bat Ye'or, Sam Solomon, Nina Shea, Robert Wistrich and David Yerushalmi, theologians such as Richard L. Rubenstein and Mark Durie, activists such as David Beamer, Elsabeth Sabaditsch Wolff, Lars Hedegaard, Jonathan Hausman and Charles Jacobs, cartoonists, Kurt Westergaard and Lars Vilks, and journalists Erick Stakelbeck and Kenneth Timmerman. All of them provide fascinating insights into their efforts to fight the complacency and resignation that has contributed to the current state of Western decline and Islamic resurgence.

Editorial Reviews

Steven Emerson
Jerry Gordon’s new book is an absolute classic that is required reading for anyone - civilians, law enforcement, policymakers, Congressmen, journalists - who truly want to expand their knowledge about the extent of the threat to our society posed by radical Islam. The breadth of the interviews conducted is staggering. You may not agree with all of the interviewees but I assure you that you will learn, be challenged, and be informed about the true nature of the threat to western society.
Daniel Pipes
Jerry Gordon’s excellent questions prompt important answers from leaders who appreciate Western culture and worry about Islamist encroachments. The result is stirring.
Raphael Israeli
This collection of encounters between the skilled interviewer and editor, Jerry Gordon, and a selection of 19 extraordinary personalities of many nations, orientations, occupations, and interests, is truly seminal. Few are the published volumes which have attempted such a feat and which have succeeded so spectacularly with flying colors. Compliments are due Mr. Gordon for his selection of his interviewees, for his piercing questions and for the fashion in which he leads them to reveal...
Stephen Kanfer
Jerry Gordon, a former U. S. Army intelligence officer, knows the truth and speaks it to power, without fear or favor. His writing is clear and scrupulous, and his commitment to the truth is so powerful that he has made all the right enemies. Don’t miss this new and revealing work; as usual, Gordon is at once a profound student of history and a rueful predictor of events to come.
