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)

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?

Never Again

Mark Steyn is a bigot. This is proof that anyone can publish a book even a racist like mark. He deserves the lawsuit he’s going through, and I hope he gets what’s coming to him.
