America Alone: The End of the World as We Know It | [Mark Steyn]

America Alone: The End of the World as We Know It

Talibanic enforcers burning books? The Supreme Court deciding that sharia law doesn't violate the "separation of church and state"? The Hollywood Left embracing polygamy? If you think these things 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.

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)

    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.

    "Try it again"

    To all of you "head in the sand", "PC", "multi-culturalists" that panned the book in the early days after its release, I suggest re-reading it today! If you're still of the same opinion, you're hopeless.

    "Enlightening"

    This is a sobering, eye-opening book. I recommended it to many people after reading it. Much of its content can be discouraging but the author ends it with suggestions on what steps need to be taken.

    "Viva Steyn!"

    Great stuff! Audible should pay attention to the ratings and offer more of Steyn's books -- preferably read by the author himself. Brian Emerson does a credible job with the narration but comes across as too strident. I infer that Emerson was as outraged as I am upon reading Steyn's lucid analysis and had trouble keeping the anger out of his voice.

    "Fascinating and Funny"

    If there's anyone who can be funny while listing some of the most depressing statistics and info it's Mark Steyn. This is a must read to get the big picture on the threat of Islam.
