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.

In this book Ann moves through the actual events and then compares them to the reporting of the events then and now. A very straight foreward read...

Well-researched, exciting read. Commie sympathizers are still claiming Hiss and the Rosenbergs were innocent - even after declassification of the Venona files, tell-all books by Ex-KGB officials, everything except a hand-wringing confession from the lying spies. Ann attacks the blind-faith, totalitarian zealotry of the closet commies and their Hollywood-commie defenders with fact after closet-commie-outing fact. If you think the commie phenomena is over .... hello Hillary!

Format: Paperback
Ann Coulter's thesis in this book is pretty straightforward: left-liberal Democrats have been on the wrong side of every single policy issue, domestic and foreign, without exception, for at least the past sixty years. And she backs up her claim.

It's not that she thinks conservatives are never wrong. But their errors really are _errors_. Over on the Left, they're not just wrong; they're culpably, morally, treasonously wrong. She's had enough noise about their alleged good intentions; their pattern of both opinion and behavior, she contends, is nothing short of sedition.

This subject -- i.e., the claim that left-liberals are traitors to the Republic -- is of course not one that lends itself to a huggy-squeezy let's-all-just-get-along approach. Liberals may find her a bit hard on the ticker; to borrow a phrase from Douglas Adams, Coulter is not above polemic, sarcasm, and invective the way the ocean is not above the sky. But her polemic is backed by facts and her targets deserve what they get.

Her overall approach is to correct the rewriting recent history has undergone at the hands of the terminally pusillanimous. The history she un-rewrites includes, notably, Senator Joe McCarthy and President Ronald Reagan.

In a series of incisive chapters, Coulter sets the record straight about 'McCarthyism' point by point. She reminds us of just what, exactly, Sen. McCarthy was on about (and when; of course, as the 'Sen.' indicates, he wasn't involved in the _House_ Un-American Activities Committee), and points out (to anyone who missed the news ten years ago when the results of the Army's Venona Project became public) that there were, unquestionably, hundreds of Soviet spies in highly-placed positions in the U.S. government.

Ann put together much information that has been buried or distorted. I've come across much of this same info in my history research but of course the media doesn't make a big deal out of it. What are they going to do, admit that not only were they wrong but that they were serial liars for over 40 years?

If you only read one conservative book this year make it this one.

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!!
