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.

Critic Reviews

"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)

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.

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!
