Publisher's Summary

It's the end of the world as we know it. Someday soon, you might wake up to the call to prayer of a muezzin. Europeans already do.

Liberals tell us that "diversity is our strength", while Talibanic enforcers cruise Greenwich Village burning books and barber shops, while the Supreme Court decides that 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 and provocative columnist Mark Steyn shows to devastating effect in this, his first book on American and global politics.

What the Critics Say

"America Alone is Mark Steyn at his best: funny and irreverent, even while assembling well-reasoned and complex arguments in support of serious insights." (Human Events)
"In America Alone Steyn's acerbic wit and relentless pursuit of politically incorrect truths show how Islam is gradually conquering the West by reverse assimilation, aided and abetted by global-warming ecochondriacs, craven multiculturalists, and self-detonating Islamists of the Muslim baby boom." (Jed Babbin, author of Inside the Asylum)

    "Interesting ..."

    Good topic and thought provoking ideas. Deliberately inflammatory, which can sometimes be eye rolling.

    Pace and diction by reader terrible. Almost occasionally unlistenable.

    "Be better read by author"

    Incredible content and witty as only Steyn can write however would have rather the book be read by him like his other After America. Still the narrator does a good enough job.

    Faced with mindless duty, when an audio book player slips into a rear pocket and mini buds pop into ears, old is made new again.

    Story
    "TRUTH"

    Mark Steyn runs the billiard table from William Buckley to, sadly, Glenn Beck, Michele Bachmann, and Rush Limbaugh in “America Alone”. His commentary ranges from erudite insight to conservative rant.

    Listening to Brian Emerson’s narration of Steyn’s book makes one smile and cringe. In one section Steyn intelligently reflects on the demographics of world population and then, in the next page, whips out a Glenn Beck-like’ riff on the name “Muhammad” that sounds like Michele Bachmann’s guilt-by-association comment about ex-Senator Wiener’s wife’s meeting with a Muslim Brotherhood representative; i.e. Steyn incriminates the entire Muslim religion by inferring that it is a fascist conspiracy to take over the world.

    Steyn is obviously well read and informed but one feels like he plays the publicity game of talking heads like Rush Limbaugh that have the objective of being darlings of an ideological minority that can make them rich. Steyn wastes his intelligence; pandering to an ideological constituency rather than serving the general public by searching for the truth.

    There is a truth and it lies in freedom and equal opportunity. Demographics are not destiny; i.e. demographics are a part of the human condition that can be managed by recognizing human nature’s fundamentals and conscientiously creating nations that are governed by rule-of-law.

    "Dead on"
    Any additional comments?

    The only disappointment in this book was not hearing Mark Steyn's voice reading it. It felt strange hearing his words coming from the mouth of another.

    "THE DEC LINE OF WESTERN CIVILISATION"

    This was my introduction to Mark Steyrn and indeed what an introduction.It will not please those of the left but it will inform the rest of us. Steyrn coragously puts a point of view that is, I suspect held by a majority but regretably not diseminated well a great read reminds me of the writings of Oriana Fallaci, she too made her point well and with courage. I will look for more of Steyrn

    "A Very Interesting Story"

    While the story was very interesting, the reader, Mr. Emerson, was a distraction. Emphasis in the wrong places and odd pronunciation. Probably technically correct, but different than traditional.

    "Pure Steyn"

    Funny, to the point and painfully logical in his de construction and analysis. We need more Steyn!!

    "A Warning for the World"

    Mark Steyn's overview of the subjugation of Europe as they wilt before their Muslim immigrants is powerful indictment of western civilization today. Since he has lived in the society he is describing, the anger and disgust he displays is understandable.

    Mr. Steyn's warning to America about bringing a Muslim culture to the country and then allowing it to be completely separate is very clear. The way in which Muslims always attack, claim victim status (sacred in Western culture), and then work to destroy the freedoms under which they live is laid out for all to see.
