Editorial Reviews

Review

"Into the Cannibal's Pot: Lessons for America from Post-Apartheid South Africa is a very powerful, eloquent, and original indictment of South Africa's 'democracy.' It is a disgrace that such an informative and courageous book could not come out with a major publisher.--PAUL E. GOTTFRIED, Horace Raffensperger Professor of Humanities, Elizabethtown College, author of Conservatism in America: Making Sense of the American Right, After Liberalism (Princeton, 1999), and Multiculturalism and the Politics of Guilt (Missouri, 2002)

"I relish reading Into the cannibal's Pot. Ilana Mercer's conceit in comparing post-apartheid South Africa with post-American-creed America seems brilliant--and timely."--PAUL SPERRY, investigative journalist, Hoover Institution media fellow, author of Infiltration: How Muslim Spies and Subversives Have Penetrated Washington (2005) and the blockbuster book Crude Politics (2003)

"Ilana Mercer has written about a topic that the Western media have almost completely ignored - the failure of [democratic] post-apartheid South Africa to move in the direction of peace, justice, and prosperity."--LEWROCKWELL.COM, anti-state, anti-war, pro-market (July 21, 2011)

"Powerful stuff ...one of the most profound evaluations of human nature and multiculturalism that I have read. It's that good."--JAN MICKELSON, WHO News Radio, 1040

"Cannibal is an achievement of the highest order. Ilana is in much greater supply of that 'manly virtue' than are most male writers today... the richness of Mercer's intellect is as impressive as the soundness of her character"--JACK KERWICK, Ph.D., The New American & Beliefnet's At the Intersection of Faith & Culture.

From the Publisher

This is a book about ideas and ideology. When losing an intellectual argument, there are despicable people who point an accusing finger and shout racism. In our dark times where mob rule and collectivist ideas resonate with so many, this appalling strategy can be very effective. To those who support colorblind civil discourse, rule of law, equality of opportunity, freedom, the golden rule (do unto others as you wish them to do unto you), liberty, freedom of expression and religion and private property rights...regardless of skin color or ethnic background (black, red, white, yellow, brown, green or violet), we extend the hand of friendship. To those who support all forms of thuggery-- including totalitarianism, collectivism, fascism, extremist fundamentalism, unequal treatment under law, income redistribution, nanny state government programs and the soft bigotry of low expectations-- your skin color and ethnicity are irrelevant...and your ideas belong in the dustbin of history.
