I'll review with the table of contents, to give prospective readers a clearer idea of what they're buying.
Preface - 1 page, in which the author posits that citizens of the USA are not being told the whole story.
A wolf in sheep's clothing - 25 pages examining Islam, fairly effectively countering the claim that this is a religion of peace. Goes to source some - there are a group of quotes taken (without context) from the Quran. The quotes without context don't seem to be an unfair representation, but more depth would have been more revealing, and perhaps more convincing.
An Economy in Hock - 10 pages focused on the dangers of relying on oil sources in the Middle East - not only economically, but politically.
La Reconquista - 24 pages revealing the downside of illegal immigration, with primary focus on the Mexican border, Mexican insurrectionist groups, mainstream media's failure to inform the public, and BIA's inability to keep vicious criminals from reentering our country after deportation. Pretty scary stuff.
Abolishing Self-defense - 15 pages examining the demonization of gun ownership and the history of gun control laws in history, with several stories of people who have used guns in self-defense.
Subordinating Ourselves - 16 pages showing the injustices caused by the Affirmative Action program and demonstrating how it's actually preventing anyone from achieving its stated goals while it promotes opposed goals.
Subordinating Our Culture - 8 pages explaining how the Political Correctness and Multiculturalism movements were begun, and a fairly effective refutation.
Subordinating Our Country - 6 pages examining the propaganda of anti-Americanism, largely in scholastic environments, and suggesting the motive for it.
An Ideology of Submission - 6 pages explaining what the author calls "Dhimmism" (a reference to Islamic law, referring to the non-Islams who live under Islamic control), with careful examination of the differences between this and liberalism. Most of the rest of the book deals with the effects of Dhimmism on America.
Enforcing the Ideology - 15 pages showing the methods by which this political philosophy is sold to the American public, and opposing viewpoints are silenced.
Disabling Americans - 21 pages showing how this is force-fed to children and young adults in the nation's schools, to the detriment of their actual education.
Spreading the Ideology - 34 pages examining in closer detail how Dhimmism is spread through the schools, various departments in universities, mass media, news outlets, textbooks, bookstores (side note - I was amazed at Half-Price Book's gaps - for example, books on Economics are scattered throughout the remarkably small Business section; there are subjects you just can't find on their shelves), and libraries. It then goes on to examine the Supreme Court's decisions in this direction, the effect of predatory legislation, and government agencies' actions in both advancing Dhimmism and covering it up when investigating well-publicized crimes.
Can America Be Saved? - 12 pages of the Author's recommendations for policy changes that he believes will help.
Reclaiming the Individual - 12 pages offering advice on raising free-thinking children (focusing heavily on homeschooling), finding better sources for news and entertainment, and a short paragraph on how to spread the word locally.
Reclaiming the Economy - 6 pages examining options for reducing our dependence on foreign oil supplies.
Reclaiming the Government - 4 pages urging participation in the electoral process.
If All Else Fails - 6 pages offering advice on self-defense, strategies for avoiding urban fighting, and preparedness for Islamic attacks, none of it terribly promising or hopeful.
Endnotes - 43 pages of references, not broken into chapters, that you'll become far too familiar with. The author did his research, but you'll want to duplicate that effort.
While the author seems eager to name names when he's citing victims of the above problems, he's annoyingly reticent about doing so in other examples. For example, here's the second and third paragraphs of _Reclaiming the Government_, page 211:
"There are two ways to establish government by the people and for the people.
One is for the people to take over one of the two Parties. This was almost done in the 2004 election by using the Internet. (810) Even in that case, however, the TV studios and the big money contributors co-opted the candidate once he had become the front runner. (In the 2004 case, this candidate later self-destructed anyway.)"
Endnote 810 is: "Joe Trippi, _The Revolution Will Not Be Televised: Democracy, the Internet, and the Overthrow of Everything_, Regan Books, 2004.
So, if you want to know what candidate the author is talking about, you'll have to already know, or look up this other book. Some of the references are internet web sites, others are used repeatedly, so you won't need a different book for all 823 references offered, but you will wish he'd included a bibliography, which he doesn't.
Interesting for students of the genre, frustrating for those not already familiar with the arguments, and probably frightening and oblique enough to turn newcomers to the issues away to more profitable pursuits. This book had promise, and will occasionally be a 'go-to' reference because of its breadth alone, but it's lack of depth is surely its most serious flaw.
Yes, the author is remarkably biased - this book is an examination of why he's biased in that direction. There are very few unexamined opinions or tacit assumptions, though the evidence presented is not convincing without examination of his sources.
All in all, not bad - but there are better out there. Borrow this one and use the endnotes to compile a shopping list.
I am going to list some books at the end of this review because while the author is utterly brilliant and on point, he overlooks all the evil things the US Government is doing "in our name," and I will be the first to say we cannot restore our Republic unless we first restore both our moral compass and the sovereignty of We the People, demanding that the Constitution and Electoral Reform be the only two issues that matter henceforth.
The authors table of contents says it all, and I have never seen a better more organized laydown of content than this one, so good that I am spelling it out here because for many, the table of contents alone is sufficient (but I urge buying the book, it is very readable and thought-provoking).

This is an enormously important book that speaks to the heart and mind of every person of any race or faith who believes in America the Beautiful, in dignity, justice, and liberty for all. That's not what we stand for today, and that is a travesty of epic proportions.
One final observation: the author is completely correct in all that he says, but we have to recognize that it is the virtual colonialism, unilateral militarism, and predatory immoral capitalism (a class war on both our workers and middle class and those of other countries) that are the foundation for the mass immigration toward America. There is plenty of money for peace--for just one third of the $900 billion a year military budgets of all nations, we can resolve every single one of the ten high-level threats to humanity identified by the United Nations (with LtGen Dr. Brent Scowcroft representing America) and created infinite stabilizing wealth, what Medard Gabel calls in his forthcoming book, "Seven Billion Billionaries." We know what needs to be done, we have to take back control of the US Government from the corrupt politicians and crooked Wall Street gangs that have legalized the marginalization of the majority of all citizens.
The blind support for an Israel that is both fascist and genocidal, combined with the idiocy of hundreds of billions of dollars for Egyptian arms purchases and total subservicen to the depraved and desposit Saudi regime are signs of a government that is totally out of touch with both reality, and the possibilities of peace and prosperity. No one in Washington cares about us, only about their next bribe or paycheck or lunch hour.
