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.

How many actually read this book?

For so many who knew they would not like the book to have purchased and listened to it defies credulity.

Audible, this site, and folks interested in finding interesting reading material would be better off with objective assessments by folks who have actually read the book.

Treason

Great book, especially having Ann Coulter reading it. It helps to put in perspective what the left is doing currently with the War with Iraq. A current example of the treason of the left.

Lunacy

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.

The latest volley in a massive smear campaign...

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.

Horrible. Simply horrible.

I'm a staunch independent, open to all points of view, but Coulter is a blatant dullard. Her assertion that anyone who doesn't back their president 100% when a country is going to war is a traitor, or guilty of treason, is downright moronic. This woman's books just keep getting more and more inane. Save your money.

Treason

Ann Coulter recounts an extremely if not refreshingly politically incorrect account of the Mccarthy era and then some. Liberals will scream foul while conservatives find redemption in this highly researched narrative of one of America's most controversial senators,Joe McCarthy, debunking many of what has been said of him in the past. His family should feel vindicated.

Eye Opener

Ms. Coulter reviews anti-American behavior and patriotism among liberals and conservatives since WWII. All her conclusions are backed by historical documentation. This book has shattered many preconceived ideas I had regarding Senator McCarthy, Richard Nixon, Ronald Regan.

I have found it rather interesting that all the negative comments regarding this book, actually support what the author says in her book. Namely, that liberals will attack someone rather than attack their ideas.

I recommend this book. I also look forward to reading a factual rebuttal, but have yet to find one.

But were they're communist ......?

This essential question will never be addressed by the left. It no longer amazes me how skewed history becomes once the "major media" gets hold of it. In her research, Ann Coulter does something no liberal would ever consider, study the transcripts instead of the headlines. Bravo! A must read!

Treason

This woman exemplifies what is wrong with debate in this country. People who disagree with her and her worldview are maligned and vilified, and there is no room for rational and well thought out arguments. Anyone who disagrees is accused of Treason and Slander, and because her terms are so outrageous, people buy the book in droves. The Foxification of Amerika continues, while the people who support this type of thing turn a blind eye to the erosion of their own civil liberties and their own prosperity. Oh, and Ann gets rich buy selling lots of books. Does anyone feel manipulated yet?
