Reexamining the 60-year history of the Cold War and beyond - including the career of Senator Joseph McCarthy, the Whittaker Chambers-Alger Hiss affair, Ronald Reagan's challenge to Mikhail Gorbachev to "tear down this wall", the Gulf War, and our present war on terrorism - Coulter reveals how liberals have been horribly wrong in all their political analyses and policy prescriptions. She also examines how history, especially in the latter half of the twentieth century, has been written by liberals and, therefore, distorted by their perspective. Far from being irrelevant today, her clearheaded and piercing view of what we've been through informs us perfectly for challenges today and in the future.
With Slander, Ann Coulter became the most recognized and talked-about conservative intellectual of the year. Treason, in many ways an even more controversial and prescient book, will ignite impassioned political debate at one of the most crucial moments in our history.

I doubt the negative reviews below have even ready it; just a knee jerk reaction from partisans. Go ahead and take a chance on it...it is not a perfect book but it is well written, informative and entertaining.
Liberals always think they are smarter than the common man. They think that they need to save the masses. Ann does an outstanding job of exposing the truth of the liberal agenda.
Finally someone who has the guts to expose the Democratic Party for what they really are, "America Haters". Every "Patriot and Public Educated person" should read this book!
It's not hard to believe that history has been twisted by the media and academia. Look at how they are spinning current events. Thanks to Ann Coulter for setting the record straight.
Just when you thought you knew how BAD Democrats and Liberals were, Ann Coulter shows us that they're worse than we thought, and have been for some time.
Unfortunately, the Liberals and Democrats won't get half as angry over this as they should, because you need an IQ in the double digits to comprehend all the nuances.
I spent the first half of the book wide-eyed as Ann revealed the perfidy of Democrats who have since been cleansed by nostalgia and revisionism--chief among the FDR and Harry Truman, who I once thought of as merely a lovable dope.
This should be required reading in any Political Science OR Journalism course, but of course, it won't be. I want to place an order for Coulter's next book right NOW!!
I would have thought this title would be a lot more popular considering that most of her audience probably doesn't do a lot of heavy reading outside of the checkout line at the supermark and would appreciate the ease and convenience of an audio book.
Is the woman crazy? She loves Joe McCarthy and thought Kennedy was an idiot! She defies even the most conventional wisdom. I would hope that she is not a typical example of the American right. If you find guilty pleasure in reading the tabloids, you will LOVE this audiobook.
For the record: I am an Independent, deeply religious swing-voting female who agrees with some conservative views and some liberal views.
Steeped in conservative cant as I am, I still fail to understand what this book is about. McCarthy was good?? Liberals hate freedom?? Huh? I thought liberals were supposed to be too free. Maybe she just means they're bad no matter what they do. What a naive good cop/bad cop worldview. I didn't listen to the end because I realized that the point, the punchline I was waiting for, was never going to materialize.
This book is only selectively researched, and it has a grating hysterical tone that will turn off anyone but the most die-hard neocon. Screaming "traitor, traitor!" doesn't make it so. Someone needs to lay off the caffeine, go condition her hair and spend some quality time talking to her action figure.
Vote with your money: Try Al Franken's book...or the Holy Bible...or Everything I Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten
