From the Inside Flap
It's the end of the world as we know it...
Someday soon, you might wake up to the call to prayer from a muezzin. Europeans already are. And liberals will still tell you that "diversity is our strength"--while Talibanic enforcers cruise Greenwich Village burning books and barber shops, the Supreme Court decides 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, provocative, and brilliant Mark Steyn--the most popular conservative columnist in the English-speaking world--shows to devastating effect. The future, as Steyn shows, belongs to the fecund and the confident. And the Islamists are both, while the West is looking ever more like the ruins of a civilization. But America can survive, prosper, and defend its freedom only if it continues to believe in itself, in the sturdier virtues of self-reliance (not government), in the centrality of family, and in the conviction that our country really is the world's last best hope. Mark Steyn's America Alone is laugh-out-loud funny--but it will also change the way you look at the world.
From the Back Cover
Praise for America Alone
"Mark Steyn is a human sandblaster. This book provides a powerful, abrasive, high-velocity assault on encrusted layers of sugarcoating and whitewash over the threat of Islamic imperialism. Do we in the West have the will to prevail?" --Michelle Malkin, New York Times bestselling author of Unhinged
"Mark Steyn is the funniest writer now living. But don't be distracted by the brilliance of his jokes. They are the neon lights advertising a profound and sad insight: America is almost alone in resisting both the suicide of the West and the suicide bombing of radical Islamism." --John O'Sullivan, editor at large, National Review, and author of The President, the Pope, and the Prime Minister

Ardent leftists will, no doubt, give their full effort to dismantling the premise without actually attacking the argument, but I encourage anyone who cares about politics, religion, or international affairs to read this well-done book. Even if you spend the entire time trying to find holes in the argument, its still an enjoyable read.
Unfortunately it's already a little dated, and things have gotten MUCH worse.
How much worse do they have to get before we wake up ?
The muslims are sucking up all the free social services in the socialistic nations of the EU and so they have too much free time to subvert the governments of these nations. The statistics laid down in this book should scare everyone who has half a brain. When America is alone, against Islam, we will be in a very tight spot, because we already have way to many of these fearless anti-democratic system radicals here already... A must read for anyone who loves America and its residual freedoms left over after Obama trashed the borders, the federal courts and our own trust in the federal government.
This book is well worth your time if you're interested in what is arguably the biggest issue facing our world today, and our current debate on that topic would be much more fruitful if everyone were as up-front and honest as Steyn. This gets 5 stars easily.
