Publisher's Summary

America is under attack as never before - not only from terrorists, but from people who provide a rationale for terrorism. Best-selling author Dinesh D'Souza takes on all of America's critics and proves them wrong - as perhaps only a writer with an immigrant's understanding of this country can.
D'Souza presents his case for intelligent patriotism based on an understanding of what really makes America unique in the world. Among other issues, he confronts the hallmarks of criticism of the American way - our history of slavery, colonialism, and materialism. His thought-provoking essay is simply presented. He defends not an idealized America, but America as it really is, and measures America not against utopia, but against the rest of the world.


What the Critics Say

"Engaging and compelling." (Amazon.com review)
"[D'Souza's] fellow travelers will love it; readers on the left will love to hate it." (Publishers Weekly)
"His voice as a reader is almost without accent, sounding conversational, friendly and engaging." (Library Journal)

Truly outstanding!

This book was outstanding! It should be required reading at the high school level. Mr. D'Souza has a wonderful ability to break down into concise, yet thourough chapters, the critical aspects of current American life; each of which have been discussed, debated and written about at great length. He provides historical & current political, social and moral perspectives and then leads to thoughtful, well supported, and logical conclusions. If you are entertained by thoughtful insight with relevance to our lives today, you will love this book. I could not stop listening once I started. I will be seeking out his other works.

I rarely write reviews, but this book is so worthy of your time, I feel compelled to endorse it. I have no idea who the author votes for politically, which speaks volumes for his ability to keep his biases at bay. Very well thought out and reasoned arguments for appreciating and falling in love with your country again.
