Book Description

Aug. 8 2011
Optimistic About America’s Future?
Don’t Be.


In his giant New York Times bestseller, America Alone: The End of the World as We Know It, Mark Steyn predicted collapse for the rest of the Western World. Now, he adds, America has caught up with Europe on the great rush to self-destruction.

It’s not just our looming financial collapse; it’s not just a culture that seems on a fast track to perdition, full of hapless, indulgent, childish people who think government has the answer for every problem; it’s not just America’s potential eclipse as a world power because of the drunken sailor policymaking in Washington—no, it’s all this and more that spells one word for America: Armageddon.

What will a world without American leadership look like? It won’t be pretty—not for you and not for your children. America’s decline won’t be gradual, like an aging Europe sipping espresso at a café until extinction (and the odd Greek or Islamist riot). No, America’s decline will be a wrenching affair marked by violence and possibly secession.

With his trademark wit, Steyn delivers the depressing news with raw and unblinking honesty—but also with the touch of vaudeville stand-up and soft shoe that makes him the most entertaining, yet profound, columnist on the planet. And as an immigrant with nowhere else to go, he offers his own prescription for winning America back from the feckless and arrogant liberal establishment that has done its level best to suffocate the world’s last best hope in a miasma of debt, decay, and debility. You will not read a more important—or more alarming, or even funnier—book all year than After America.

Review

Praise for After America

“Mark Steyn is a modern day Jeremiah with a quiverful of devastating one-liners, nailing what the liberals have done to our country. He presents an alarming—and frighteningly convincing—prophecy of where we’re headed. The choice is stark—we either listen to Steyn and act on his recommendations or face economic and cultural armageddon.”
—Mark Levin

“Mark Steyn has done it again. In his new book, After America, he clearly defines the dangerous signals which show America is embracing the same doomed path as the failed European economies, and how vital it is to implement and avoid policies right now to prevent us from the same fate.”
—Sean Hannity

“Only Mark Steyn can write about the decline of America and leave you laughing.”
—Ann Coulter

4.0 out of 5 stars Good writing Oct. 30 2011
Format:Hardcover
I picked up this book after learning about Mark Steyn and his contribution to Canada's Maclean's magazine. I was interested in this book solely because I wanted to hear what one of Canada's prominent writers has to say and not because of any personal political view. Without a doubt, Steyn is a fine writer, one of those genius self-taught writers. To an extreme left-wing reader, this work would come across as nothing but a collection of right-wing conspiracy theories and the language in the book can be extreme in his descriptions of the nanny state, especially the "conformacrats", and the commander-in-chief of conformacracy - Barack Obama. However, one has to agree with his some of Steyn's observations, especially his view that college education is failing the students. The government's approach to education and easy student loans have not been helpful. Nevertheless, the book is in large part an attack on the Obama presidency. His obsession with Barack Obama at time seems unfounded. He appears to be a Bush-era war crime apologist and throughout the book, he makes no mention of George Bush's role in further endangering the American economy by amassing trillions of dollars of debt to fund two wars. Instead, his focus is on the incompetency of Obama and his "citoyen du monde" approach to governing. Consistent with a right-wing conservative's views, Mark Steyn fails to question America's complicity in Middle East and the ongoing senseless wars.

Overall, Mark Steyn is a fine writer and I greatly admire him for his use of literary references. The book is humorous throughout, typical of Steyn's style. The left-wing environmentalists and socialists will not be too amused with this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's the end of the world as we know it, Part 2 Oct. 21 2011
By D Glover TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
To summarize my appreciation for this book, I echo the sentiment of Ann Coulter in that only Mark Steyn could make you laugh this hard while reading a book on the death of America. However, unlike Coulter, my praise for Steyn's astute observation and critique of the ills must be counter-weighted by my disappointment and downright puzzlement at what Steyn proposes in place of the status quo. With a problem this bad, the solution must be far more radical than Steyn proposes. For these reasons, I give him 4 stars for this critique and elucidation of the problems but only 3 for his answers to them (more on this later).

In his previous book, America Alone (see my review), Steyn argued from a demographics perspective that the Islamic world was taking over the west and that the U.S. was the only nation in the west with a birthrate that didn't portend a hopeless national death spiral. In After America, Steyn looks at the world through the lens of economics and he determines that the U.S. has joined the rest of the west in a self-destroying debt spiral, one which will result in a short shift of power to countries like China and Russia, but which will ultimately end in the balance of power going to the new world order that radical, determined and forward-planning Islam is working hard to establish.

Since Steyn published America Alone, a lot has happened. Obama was voted in by a star-struck, celebrity worshipping, fiscally suicidal U.S. majority who believes that Obama's personal charisma can underwrite an eternal and bottomless credit line with China and other (often hostile) foreign creditors. But unlike most party-line republicans, Steyn recognizes that, while Obama has done much to worsen and hasten the U.S. fiscal death spiral, he is not the real problem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Steyn Does It Again June 27 2012
Format:Hardcover
When last we heard from Mark Steyn in "America Alone", the fate of the Western world was bleak. Europe had sacrificed itself on the altar of multiculturalism, Britain and the commonwealth were following suit and only fortress America stood as a bulwark against the corrosive effects of political correctness and suicidal demographics. Unfortunately, as the title "After America" suggests, things have gotten worse.

According to Steyn, the America we once knew is declining fast and will no longer be the guarantor of Western values that it once was. Rather than standing as a beacon of liberty and freedom, America has jettisoned the founding ideals of the Republic and embarked upon a Euro-trip of big government spending, over-regulation and unsustainable debt. The end result of this inexorable growth of government has been the suffocation of individual liberty. In the name of "progress", America has become an economically and spiritually bankrupt nation; unable to pay the bills and unwilling to defend the culture.

Lest you delude yourself into hoping that "Uncle Sam" can weather the economic and demographic storm by electing a Republican to the White House in November 2012; don't bother. Setting the stage for America's perpetual big government political environment, has been a bi-partisan effort.

Mark Steyn will have you turning pages quickly, just so you can alternately chuckle and then wave your fist at the many anecdotes produced to illustrate the point that America has become a land of "small citizens" living in a "big government" country.

Read "After America" to gain a full arsenal of real world examples highlighting the excesses of big government. The next time you hear someone say "the government needs to get involved", "why don't we have a law for that" or "celebrate diversity", you'll be glad you did.
