Publisher's Summary

In a stunning follow-up to her number one best seller Slander, leading conservative pundit Ann Coulter contends that liberals have been wrong on every foreign policy issue, from the fight against Communism at home and abroad, the Nixon and the Clinton presidencies, and the struggle with the Soviet empire right up to today's war on terrorism. "Liberals have a preternatural gift for always striking a position on the side of treason," says Coulter. "Everyone says liberals love America, too. No, they don't." From Truman to Kennedy to Carter to Clinton, "America has contained, appeased, and retreated, often sacrificing America's best interests and security. With the fate of the world in the balance, liberals should leave the defense of the nation to conservatives."

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 like the titles of her books as self-describers"

    Coulter's books Slander and Treason seem more descriptive of *her* work than that of those she criticizes. First she starts with slander (lying with footnotes, 101), then she moves on to outright treason. Nahh, I wouldn't really accuse of her treason just for backing a lowlife like Joe McCarthy who, for his own drunkenly conceived personal gain, destroyed the lives of many Americans and hobbled reforms in this country that might have given us a more reasonable health care system and a shorter work week.
    But, don't expect any hesitancy from Coulter: she'll stop at nothing. Like other neocons, she must believe that politics is a war in which the "enemy" is to be destroyed. Or perhaps, David Brock's comment that she lived on chardonnay and cigarettes (see "Blinded by the Right") might begin to explain the weird views of Ann o'rexic Coulter.

    "Very disappointed RE accuracy"

    I found colter's writing interesting, but then actually checked the accuracy of her endnotes. I found NONE of her "facts" supported by the notes she gives. It raises the question "Why give references if they DISPROVE the statement you just made?" Before you buy the book, look at a library or bookstore copy and do a randon check of her endnotes- they honestly DO NOT support her premises and often contradict them! Perhaps she is a Liberal agent trying to discredit consertavtive support???!?

    "Air-Headed Logic to Promote Hatred"

    Coulter has found a niche, and seems to be playing it for all it's worth. This is a very troubled author filled with demons of hate and confusion. We should no longer encourage her by buying her books and give her time to grasp reality. The author's facts are distorted and twisted to support a sick crusade against free-thinking Americans. This book's slant is clearly un-American, because it confuses unquestioning compliance with patriotism, and insults the majority of Americans who know right from wrong, and are not afraid to say so.

    "Not for the feint of heart"

    Terrible writing but a unique and provocative perspective that deserves open debate. Unfortunatley, this was not good debate. And it was equally unfortunate that it took so much effort to wade through the emotional rhetoric to find credible material. To get something out of this book, keep your emotions at bay and think, think, think. Don't expect high literature. The real value of this book will define itself after an intelligent analysis and rebuttle, if there is one. This is not an easy read; and the brutal attack on liberal leadership is not for the feint of heart.

    "Ann Does it Again!"

    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!!

    "Genius! And I don't use that word lightly."

    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.

    "Action Figure Diatribe"

    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
