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.

This would probably be a good "first Tammy Bruce" book for a lot of people.
At least I'm reviewing her book and not her politics.
Like many others, I became acquainted with this incredible woman through her first book, "The New Thought Police". Her arguments about the left's attempt to shut down democratic dialogue (borne from her own experience as LA's NOW chairperson, and as a feminist and lesbian activist with her own talk show) really hit home for this Ann Arbor native. According to Ms. Bruce in presentations since publication of this book, "The New American Revolution" builds on material lain by her first two books, "TNTP" and "The Death of Right and Wrong". Therein lies my only criticism of the book...it does seem to presuppose the reader is a supporter of Ms. Bruce's theories, and does not do as terrific a job of explaining the classical liberalism that underlies all of her writing as does her first book (I have not read the second, and so cannot comment on that).
That being said, there are a lot of us who do agree with Ms. Bruce on most salient points, and who see our ideas and political parties being hijacked by people who want to pull them to either the left or right extreme. For us, this treatise on the individual as self- and neighborhood protector is good reading.
Unlike the Democrats of the past, the current leaders of the party are anti-American leftist who show by their words and deeds that they want America to lose the war on terror. They pit one group against another, and seem to want bad things to happen to our country. They are socialists who despise capitalism, big business and individualism. They constantly disrespect the office of the President as they show utter contempt for George W. Bush. They have abandoned classic liberalism for a far left version that bears no resemblance to the liberalism of Roosevelt, Truman or Jack Kennedy.
As a feminist and former President of NOW in Los Angeles, Ms. Bruce speaks with a perspective forged from inside the conclaves of modern liberalism. She admits to having gone along with their radical ideas and tactics for far too long. As it did for so many American, 9/11 was her wake-up call. She began to question the goals of the left and disagree with their hate filled mentality. She writes of how the left use charges of racism, homophobia, and bigotry to silence anyone who disagrees with them. As a lesbian and a feminist Ms. Bruce writes with authenticity and inside knowledge of how the left operates. Reading her book you will find out how the left uses the mainstream media and how the media is all too willing to partner with them to advance their agenda.
She writes about the left's drive to ban guns. Find out how the media distorts the news to convince Americans they would be safer if all guns were banned. Find out what happened in Great Britain and other countries when they confiscated all guns.
All of the things that has made America the most prosperous, the most generous, and the freest nation in the history of the planet are the things that the far left want to eradicate. They attack religion, undermine our military, and they hate capitalism. They want bigger government, redistribution of wealth, and always higher taxes.
Ms. Bruce describes how the individual spirit that Americans embody is reclaiming our heritage from those who what to destroy it. You will find out how individual Americans are making a difference everyday and what you can do to counter the left's agenda.
I believe that any person (especially Democrats) who love this country, owes it to themselves to read The New American Revolution. If you have gone along with the Democrats just because you always have, you need to wake up to how these new Democrats are hurting our country. If you will read this book with an open mind, you will be transformed. Tammy Bruce is an articulate and persuasive author armed with the truth and first hand experience.
