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)

    "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.

    "Boring!!!"

    I knew who this author was in that I have seen him interviewed on several videos, so I thought I knew what to expect. Wrong. This book rambled on and on. I listened to the whole thing and am still wondering what he was trying to say. I do not recommend it

    "From smart to insane"

    Unfortunately some of the facts presented here are made up, but I strongly recommend this book, you can learn how American Christians see extreme Islam.

    "Should be titled: "Haters Unite!""

    I bought it because the reviews claimed it was hilarious political humor, which I enjoy. I can only assume that the high star rating results from the author's family and friends submitting "reviews". The negative, sarcastic nature of the book, combined with the typical twisted logic threads, common on the far right, turned out to be totally aimed at those "ridiculous liberals". I will laugh at almost anything, (including liberals) but this simply wasn't funny. You can't wail mercilessly on a group (like Islam) and then act like it was all a joke, especially if there is no punch line except: they are awful, dangerous, zealots, etc. That's not humor. But it IS divisive hate mongering trying to disguise itself as humor, a common tool of Fox News and it's ilk. For example, one recurring premise is that if you are dumb enough to believe that global warming is a problem you haven't got a clue to what's really important, as if world problems are mutually exclusive. Pretty funny stuff. It's very sad to speculate on the number of people who WILL think its funny... One star is way too generous!

    "About TIME!"

    It is about time someone compaired the world to the muslim world. I understand that not ALL muslims are terrorist. However, you do not see the throngs of outcry when one of the psychos goes off either. Until I see thoes throngs of outcry I cannot & will not beleave islam is a religon of love & peace. The western worlds need for a PC life will be its downfall.

    "An author in search of an editor"

    As long as Steyn sticks to his basic premise, that Islam is a dangerous, violent, and agressive religion / philosophy, he is in good shape.

    Unfortunately, he often veers into familiar, knee jerk ultra-conservative territory, with no logic and no data to back up his rant.

    He often mistakes the repetition of a premise for solid proof. Further, a reasonable amount of his premises have been disproven by following events.

    Additionally, he often manages to forget history. While he may state that the demise of Europe is purely a product of the Post WWII welfare state and the later Moslem immigrations, what he does not bother to do is remember that much of what has happened in Europe is quite within the character pattern set almost a century ago.

    His rant against the concept of Global Warming has been completely proven false by a whole series of scientific studies.

    Basically, had he cut the book to about 1/3 of its current length and had he stuck to the premise that we are in a cultural war with Islam, the book would have been infinitely more effective.

    "horrendous narration of an excellent book"

    This is one of the best books I've "read" on the current cultural landslide. It provides material evidence of stark contrast to the culturally suicidal European Union and the American left, who prostrate America with their apologies and concessions, and our weak-willed alleged "allies", whose culture is inherently suicidal and who have therefore, already made the decision to not confront their kevorkians. The foolish hubris of pop-intellectual elitism knows no bounds, and is steering America towards the cliff at the edge of an abyss. Hopefully, as Mr Steyn points out, the abolition of European culture will be enough of a wake-up call to America to realize the error of choosing this luxuriously fatalistic path of least resistance.
    I would have given this book 5 stars if it weren't for Brian...Emerson.?! He speaks every other sentence with awkward breaks like a cross between an automated message and Christopher Walken minus the charisma, and too often, at the point of most importance. In the future, please don't use this emotionally... confused automaton to... undermine material of such severe intensity of... importance?
