Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

?Liberals? loyalty to the United States is off-limits as a subject of political debate. Why is the relative patriotism of the two parties the only issue that is out of bounds for rational discussion??

In a stunning follow-up to her number one bestseller 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 sixty-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. McCarthy, exonerated by the Venona Papers if not before, was basically right about Soviet agents working for the U.S. government. Hiss turned out to be a high-ranking Soviet spy (who consulted Roosevelt at Yalta). Reagan, ridiculed throughout his presidency, ended up winning the Cold War. And George W. Bush, also an object of ridicule, has performed exceptionally in responding to America?s newest threats at home and abroad.

Coulter, who in Slander exposed a liberal bias in today?s media, 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.

The Cold War began in 1946, not 1945.
the dirty mac
And when she can't find even one liberal to argue for a position, she just makes it up.
David Danzig
A very clear and well researched book.

I seem to be reading her books in backward order, beginning with "How to Talk to a Liberal" which actually makes sense, since its a compilation of articles (some previsouly unpublished) from the past several years.

As for Treason, Coulter has once again shown how easy it is to anger the Left by simply revealing the truth. Personally, I am sick of the spin from both sides of the aisle, and appreciate facts backed up by proof. That's exactly what Coulter delivers in this book. If you disagree, go look up the source material. Coulter meticulously covers all of the bases, sometimes even providing the exact search terminology she uses on LexisNexis so the Doubting Thomases of the world can go do some homework.

As I read her books, I can hear her voice -- and picture her shredding through Liberals one after another, and usually with their own words come back to haunt them.

6 stars out of 5.

Ann Coulter is giving the left (both the malignant narcissists and those in denial) some of their own medicine. That explains the impotent howls of rage displayed in many of these reviews. As for the book, it is factual, well researched and engaging. It also rehabilitates McCarthy after all the slander visited upon this patriot over many decades. I enjoy the author's keen insight and her confrontational approach. Long may she expose the real agenda of those who only seek power. Books of related interest include In Defense Of Global Capitalism by Johan Norberg, Anti-Americanism by French author Jean Francois Revel, The Death Of Right And Wrong by Tammy Bruce, The Quest For Cosmic Justice by Thomas Sowell, Envy: A Theory Of Social Behavior by Helmut Schoeck and The New Anti-Semitism by Phyllis Chesler.

Format: Hardcover
In the political world there are conservatives and then there are liberals. Some times it is difficult, even impossible to know where someone stands, this is not the case with Ann Coulter. She has become a great voice and influence in the conservative political arena.

Over the past several months a number of books have come out "bashing" the left, most since 9/11. Most of them stating that the Liberal Democrat elite have missed the boat on the issues and most of the books do nothing but "bash" them. So why then is this book different? Why then is this book making the news?

Ann Coulter, who has already put together 2 other books, has taken the issues, one by one, broken them down and with documented evidence shown that the left has missed the boat on many of them.

Does she bash the liberals? In some cases very hard, and in others not at all. Coulter takes the Left to task and put the facts in front of them, there is no doubt as to where she stands and this conviction is what makes this book such a compelling read.

I was impressed by her straight forward, no holds barred approach and her unwillingness to leave the core beliefs. So gives no ground and if you look at all the facts and evidence you may start tot think twice about what needs to be changed.

Coulter's work is first rate, leaving no stones unturned in pursuit of the truth. While the liberals may find it hard to swallow the information, the work is complete and well organized. Overall an excellent job!!

I was one of those brainwashed into thinking joe McCarthy was the problem instead of the solution and will now read the Evona Project and the other scholarly book recommended by Ann in this book. She is so clear and documents everything so well - unlike so many today who make up facts to support their premise. I don't always like her analogies - "... by Truman would be like appointing Bin Laden to secretary of state ..." type things - but her writing style is really fun. This particular book clarifies so many things that were confusing to me in my early years and I purchased copies for three friends. It is very important to see just what so many in America are doing today to undermine this great country. It is especially important for the liberals to read this book so that they can redirect their efforts so as to still accomplish their exalted aims without causing so much harm. This book really is a must read - especially by the media moguls who are causing so much harm with their "America is always wrong" reporting.

Who are these idiots who keep giving books one-star ratings without having even read them?! "Treason" is an excellent read. Ann Coulter shows us that the liberals in this country have an uncanny knack for being on the wrong side of history, whether it be by siding with Communists during the Cold War, or by siding against America during the War on Terror (Those who say we deserved to be attacked on 9-11-01.). It's okay for the Libs to savagely attack and criticize America, but when anyone tries to call them on it, these drama queens scream "McCarthyism!" (That myth is debunked here, too.) Nearly a decade after the declassification of the Venona cables, American liberals continue to insist that Alger Hiss and the Rosenbergs were innocent! Yes, this book has become the target of a lot of rage and hate from the al-Quaida cheering section (a.k.a. the Democratic Party, the mainstream media and the Hollywood Left.), but Coulter should be thanked, not despised, for shedding the light of truth on these people.
