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.

This book doesn't surprise me. Released to coincide with Hillary Clinton's book this is just the latest example of the "Big Lie" phenomenon that any outrageous lie repeated often enough and loudly enough will begin to sound sensible to individuals. This book is the worst form of demogoguery. It is no accident our country prospered as it did during Clinton's administration. Despite his personal problems (sexual addiction), Mr. Clinton was a highly capable and effective leader for his country. When the right figured out they couldn't beat him at the polls they decided he must be destroyed at all costs.
Lunacy--this should be the title of Coulter's book. I listened to this thing out of interest to see what the woman had to say. Now a realize she's in it to make a buck from those more interested in partisan politics, than in the long term survival of the United States. If it is Treason to question the Bush administration regarding each of his intelligence points that have proved false, I really worry what shall become of this country.
It makes me sad that, ever since 9/11, we are rapidly losing sight of the simple idea that freedom of speech is a fundamental, and integral, concept of democracy. To brand anyone who doesn't agree with you as a traitor is to deny one of the simplest and most beautiful principles of this country. I thought that was one of the things we are supposedly fighting, and dying, for in Iraq. Or am I wrong?
More tedious preaching to the choir by Xenophobia, Warrior Princess. Her fans will undoubtedly love it, but anyone with a three-digit IQ is unlikely to find her arguments convincing.
Anyone who suggests their IQ is above 3 digits is either deluded or alien. DMather I think a demand for fact is annulled by your own laughable claims.
Dmather says "I have more than a three-digit IQ - I can distinguish facts from fiction. I can tell the difference between unsupported attacks (such as the above) and factual, well-supported arguments."
The best thing about this audiobook I can say is that since it is abridged, it contains fewer lies and less hate than the unabridged print version.
