From Publishers Weekly

Mostly a stage upon which to beat her stridently individualist chest and congratulate herself for melding seemingly contradictory political ideologies, this book opens with Bruce, a pro-death penalty, gun-owning, pro-choice lesbian feminist and former NOW chapter president who lives in San Francisco and is a Fox News contributor, hailing the 2000 election as "a message from the nation" that we were ready for someone "who was, at his core, decent." Bruce lashes out against liberals, whom she says carry around so much hatred toward the country that it has begun to infect the globe, and explains her unique politics by reasoning "party loyalty takes a backseat to the safety of your family and this nation," and "there's nothing more radically individual these days than a liberal who doesn't conform." Given the current bevy of accusations swirling over the Bush administration and its handling of intelligence, Bruce's extended attack on the "deep depravity of the American Left" seems like a victim of bad timing. Readers willing to wade through Bruce's frustratingly frequent invocations of "hate," "savage" and "evil" will hear the call to readers to think for themselves instead of relying on the party line, be it on the left or right. Unfortunately, her thesis is buried beneath mountains of dismissible rhetoric.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Tammy Bruce is one of the most thoughtful political commentators of our era. Avowedly pro choice, a lesbian activist, and a registered Democrat, Bruce has still managed to provide a thoughtful critique of the much of the cultural left. She rejects identity politics and finds that she prefers George Bush as president because "I know, despite our disagreements, [he] honors me in his work to keep this nation free and great."(p.34) Not surprisingly, Bruce is widely assumed to be some sort of right wing commentator. Indeed, most of the other Amazon reviewers do seem to consider her as such. They either love or disparage her book for this very reason. But she is just what she claims to be: a classic liberal who believes in individualism and personal freedom.

In this book Bruce is optimistic that the cultural left has been defeated. She thinks that after 9/11 Americans regained a sense of identity that rejected the politics of division that the left promotes. She sees in the 2004 presidental campaign a further rejection the narcissist left views of those like George Soros. And she provides a game plan for how the "new individuals" can continue to fight the collectivist propaganda put forth by Viacom' media outlets like CBS. These are very thoughtful suggestions. Bruce shows that individuals can make a difference when confronting large institutions, be they corporations or local governments.

Despite this, I cannot share Bruce's optimism.

Format: Hardcover
Tammy Bruce is a useful person to have around. As someone who has spent a large chunk of her adult life in left-wing organizations, she is able to give her readers an inside view of how they operate. Also, I firmly believe that as long as ideas stay in the realm of intellectuals, they have limited impact. Radio announcers, journalists and those who write general books for the masses are important in taking those ideas and presenting them to a general audience. Bruce is not on the same intellectual par as Tom Sowell or John Lott and that is too her advantage in this respect.

In THE NEW AMERICAN REVOLUTION, Bruce presents the readers with a practical perspective on some issues and gives some practical advice as to what people opposed to the Left can do to fight back against the sneaking advancement of leftist policies into our lives. Unfortunately, she does so in a rather haphazard and disjointed manner. But let us come to that later and start with the positives instead.

Bruce is pretty solid in articulating the various issues in her book. She provides a solid defense not only of gun ownership but of the underlying idea that an armed citizenry is essential to a free society. Bruce provides balance to a media that almost consistently plays up gun use against innocent civilians while ignoring those instances in which law abiding gun owners save themselves or others through the use of firearms. She also is persuasive in her case that those on the left want to take away our right to own guns in order to make us weak and passive and therefore easily led to the utopian society envisioned by the Left itself.

Bruce's take on the United Nations is particularly entertaining. She rightly slams the U.N.

Format: Hardcover
Tammy Bruce's newest book, The New American Revolution (TNAR), should be read by anyone with even a passing interest in politics and social discourse. Her views are refreshing and the narrative brisk.

TNAR offers the reader an unapologetic pep rally on American nationalism while simutaneously warning of the dangers the left wing establishment presents to the future of the country. As a former president of the LA chapter of the National Organization of Woman, Ms. Bruce gives the reader a rare insiders view of left wing organizations and how they manipulate the press to distort the truth. There is plenty in this book for people on both sides of the political spectrum to both agree and disagree with her. Ms. Bruce makes clear that she is an independent thinker and wants only for the reader to THINK about issues before they come to a conclusion. This is an enjoyable read and should be a political primer for those who are just now beginning to pay attention to politics or those who have been following it for years. Highly recommend.

8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Thomas Lindaman on November 21, 2005
Format: Hardcover
"The New American Revolution" is an inspiring, thought-provoking book that not just gives us abstract notions, but actual suggestions for action. Bruce has really evolved as a writer, and as a thinker, since "The New Thought Police," and her growth has been a marvel to watch.

The only thing that prevents me from a five-star rating is that it lacks the punch of her previous book, "The Death of Right and Wrong." After DRW, I looked for the kind of passion, intellectual strength, and moral clarity that Bruce exemplified in that book. Those elements are still there, but somewhat subdued, in my opinion.

Overall, though, it is a great read for liberal and conservative and Democrat and Republican alike. If you're not inspired after reading "The New American Revolution" check your pulse.
