14 of 14 people found the following review helpful By J. Wayne Eyre on Jan. 27 2008
Format: Hardcover
To state first things first: America Alone has got to be the most important book published in a generation.
It sets forth--through compelling argument and exhaustive detail--a chilling scenario of an inexorable, Islamist supplanting of the Western world (save, perhaps, of America alone) by a demographic and ideological tsunami that will lead to "a long Arabian Night" comparable to the Dark Ages.
Despite its singular excellence and its importance to the Western world, America Alone apparently has been under-reviewed in the media. Well, the West ignores the message of this book at its grievous peril--which very likely is precisely what it's doing, given the incredible degree to which the Islamic imams are being accommodated and appeased these days, in Europe especially.
Whether Steyn proves to be the voice who finally wakes the soft, self-indulgent West from its slumber or a modern-day Cassandra whom few pay attention to remains to be seen. (But anyone with any familiarity with contemporary Euro-think already knows what the favoured response will be.)
Mark Steyn ought to be given some sort of Nobel Prize. But, again, so deep is the blinding, jealousy-born hatred of the United States in Europe that such an idea would be risible Over There. As many have pointed out, Steyn somehow manages to lay down his apocalyptic vision with hilarious word play and ribaldry, but his vision is apocalyptic nevertheless and attention must be paid.

America Alone is a wonderful book. One that should be widely read. There are a number of points made in the book that are quite important and unique.

1. Demographics

Mark Steyn doesn't believe demographics can explain everything. But he thinks it can explain a good 90%, and he makes a pretty strong case for it.

The facts are that the birthrates in most of the western world are well below replacement rates, while the birthrates in most of the Middle East are well above. This fact, coupled with increasing rates if immigration to the west from parts of the world where the general population is quite antithetical to western values (freedom, democracy etc.) will inevitably lead to confrontation.

2. Cultural confidence

In the west, multiculturalism is law. Literally. It is the sacred cow of the elite that no one dares question. Well, except perhaps Mark Steyn and a few others.

The basic point made in America Alone is that in a clash of cultures where one is self confident and aggressive while the other is self-abasing and passive, odds are on the former. Regardless of what technological and economic advantages the latter may have.

These are very strong points. One may certainly disagree with them (as I do, in many ways) but one can't argue that they are not worth discussing, and this book is a great addition to the debate.

That being said, there are also a few things about the book I found quite irritating.

1. Content

It seems as though the majority of the book was taken verbatim from Steyn's old columns. If you have been a close reader of his work in the last few years, you will find almost no new content here, and certainly no new ideas.

Format: Hardcover
In Mark Steyn's new book: America Alone: The End of the World as We Know It, he argues that there will soon be a conflict between the U.S. and the rest of the world. European and Islamic anti-Americanism, Mark Steyn says, threatens to leave us isolated in the world: the global situation is rapidly reaching a point at which America will have to confront the enemies of civilization without help from anyone else. And when the world is divided between America and the rest, all those who don't want to see the world plunge into a new Dark Age should pray that America wins. Mark Steyn provides a well-thought out argument to just how bad things are likely to get, and what we must do now to ensure that our children and live in freedom. Mark presents a great deal of insight, below are a few:
* The likely outcome of today's global situation, in which Islam is militarily weak but ideologically confident -- while the West is militarily strong but ideologically insecure,
* The correlation between the structural weaknesses of the social-democratic state and the rise of a globalized Islam.
* How the terrorist attacks in Madrid in 2004 and London in 2005 - along with other events such as the murder of Theo van Gogh -- were the opening shots of a European civil war.
* The little-noticed reason why America's European allies failed to grasp the significance of September 11.
* How oil isn't the principal Saudi export, Islamic jihad ideology is -- and our oil money bankrolls its spread.
* Why it is so important for Americans and others who want their families to enjoy the blessings of life in a free society to understand that the life we've led since 1945 in the Western world is very rare in human history.

Format: Hardcover
Mr. Steyn has a way of using humour to slice through the fog created by the self-annointed guides of civilization. His well-researched commentary shows trends that will, even if not precicely as Mr. Steyn suggests, loom largely in the next generation or two. Long after carbon credits become the next "pet rock" of the history books, the demographic picture illuminated by Mr. Steyn may indeed become the conventional wisdom. Mr. Steyn suggests that if the Western culture stems the tide of its own self-hatred, the demographic "tipping point" may yet be avoided. I'm not sure I see a case for optimism.
