Enjoyed reading this very thought provoking book about multi-culturalism.
Alicia Rose
Sunic's book presents a good piece of scholarly and readable work in which the author trashes multicultural and liberal truths of a present day America.
Michael Santomauro
In today's politically correct world, very few authors dare to criticize what is wrong with society.

I must admit beforehand that this review may be biased by the fact that I was fortunate enough to meet Dr. Sunic in person and listen to his presentation of the book. I bought the book and the next morning decided to browse through it. I could not put it away! It is very well researched and written and it is not just about modern American society, but Western liberal ideology as well. I lived in the Soviet Union under communist regime for 30 years and can easily relate to many issues that Dr. Sunic discusses in "Homo Americanus". In fact, for people who came to the United States from the former communist countries, the similarity between communist ideology and practice and western liberalism is often shocking. The main difference according Dr. Sunic is hard oppression (under communism) vs. soft oppression (in the West). While in Russia and Eastern Europe communists came to power staging bloody revolutions, raise of "Cultural Marxism" in the West was not as dramatic. That is why for many Americans, I think, the statement that Dr. Sunic made in his book that communism failed in the East, because it has succeeded in the West may sound unbelievable but it is well proved in "Homo Americanus". After all both ideologies are based on the same foundation - belief in equality. Is not it ironic that most hideous crimes against humanity were committed in the name of liberty, equality and brotherhood: Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot? French Revolution?

Author examines many different topics in the book that led to appearance of a new human creature he dubbed Homo Americanus, who is not surprisingly so similar to Homo Soveticus described by Alexander Zinoviev. I am not going to retell the book here, you just have to read it. For many it may become the eye opener, some will probably hate it, because the views expressed in the book clearly do not belong to "mainstream propaganda" and tolerating dissent is not something that is taught to us under the disguise of "tolerance".

Format: Paperback
In today's politically correct world, very few authors dare to criticize what is wrong with society. Despite the First Amendment, it is often political suicide to realistically recognize what is occurring, and may even cost one's job in some cases, if not more. Dr. Tom Sunic is one of those brilliant and fearless individuals who defies the politically correct ban, and he has written an astounding book that all fans of freedom should take the time to read.

Who is Dr. Tom Sunic, you might ask? He is a man of many talents, whose credentials are impeccable. He obtained his doctorate in political science at the University of California. He is fluent in Croatian, French, and German, and has had articles published in various publications in these languages, as well as several books. He has worked as a US professor, and was also a diplomat for Croatia for some time. He is no lightweight in either the political or intellectual establishment. And yet he dares to speak the truth about the destruction of the West, and doesn't cringe when mentioning the perpetrators largely responsible for America's ongoing transition to third-world status. It should come as no surprise that America's most brilliant psychologist, Professor Kevin MacDonald, has written the foreword of Dr. Sunic's book, for Dr. Sunic is a man to be admired: He is one of those brave-hearted and brilliant souls who dares to stand up to be counted among those who recognize America's reckless nature. He unapologetically speaks the truth of where this once mighty nation is heading: on a one-way, broken roller coaster--downhill and fast.

In Dr. Sunic's most recent book, Homo Americanus, he tries to define just "who" is the American man, and what the American man believes. Dr.

Format: Paperback
Adelaide, 20 May 2007

Anyone who writes about >Americanism< at the beginning of the 21st century is propounding a world view, and for me that means having to get past the view formulated in 2000 by Jacques Barzun in his classic, From Dawn to Decadence: 1500 to the Present: 500 Years of Western Cultural Life.

Multi-lingual Croatian-born and US-educated scholar and former diplomat Tomislav Sunic does not mention Barzun in the index of names of his 214-page paperback book, nor is Barzun's book mentioned in any of the 230-footnotes.

This may be because Sunic is far more modest in his attempt to bring into focus the elements, the myths and legends that make up the USA where >political correctness< has gone overboard. For example, by enshrining in law aspects of the 2001 US government official conspiracy theory that >Arab terrorists< perpetrated 9:11, it is more difficult to investigate the various events surrounding this tragedy. If insurance companies pay on claims made by victims of 9:11, then that supports the conspiracy theory and sets events and incidents in legal concrete. To chip away at such legal structures is thus essential because they effectively distort societal realities. In his book Sunic does not shy away from such an enterprise.

When I began reading Homo Americanus I recalled that Barzun spent relatively little time on illuminating the post-World-War I-II period, something that Sunic does in some detail. Barzun, for example, in less than a page skims over the period that Revisionists literally have thrashed to death: the Holocaust-Shoah that has brainwashed the German people with a sense of guilt to the point of self-destruction.
