Publisher's Summary

It's the end of the world as we know it. Someday soon, you might wake up to the call to prayer of a muezzin. Europeans already do. Liberals tell us that "diversity is our strength", while Talibanic enforcers cruise Greenwich Village burning books and barber shops, while the Supreme Court decides that 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 and provocative columnist Mark Steyn shows to devastating effect in this, his first book on American and global politics.

What the Critics Say

"America Alone is Mark Steyn at his best: funny and irreverent, even while assembling well-reasoned and complex arguments in support of serious insights." (Human Events)
"In America Alone Steyn's acerbic wit and relentless pursuit of politically incorrect truths show how Islam is gradually conquering the West by reverse assimilation, aided and abetted by global-warming ecochondriacs, craven multiculturalists, and self-detonating Islamists of the Muslim baby boom." (Jed Babbin, author of Inside the Asylum)

Absolutely Essential

Any additional comments?

I already had a copy of this book in paperback but I bought the audio version as well for the pleasure of listening to what I already knew to be a superb book. Steyn's "America Alone" (along with its companion piece After America) is one of the essential books of the last decade. Everyone should read this book, especially those who would wish to disagree with it. Both funny and truthful, it says so many of the things which need to be said but which are usually smothered in silence due to fear of political censure. Steyn turns a searchlight of truth upon the realities of contemporary western society and reveals just how self-destructive ideological correctness has been, and will continue to be in the future as its unplanned consequences play out. The book is a few years old now but it's still as relevant as ever. If you haven't read (or listened to) this book yet, buy it.

Interesting and concerning.

What made the experience of listening to America Alone the most enjoyable?

Steyn's writing is always interesting.


What did you like best about this story?

Plenty of facts to ponder.


Have you listened to any of Brian Emerson’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No. To be honest, I would have preferred Steyn to read his own book


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I was left feeling somewhat uneasy about the political future of the USA, and Europe. Any one who likes their ideas to be challenged would find this an interesting read. Perhaps not the very best of Steyn, but superior to many political writers today.
