Format: Paperback
This is a worrying prognostication from Mark Steyn, wrought with excellent humour and a readable style.

Exercising the demographic bee in his bonnet (as he has since September 11th 2001), Mark Steyn says that America (and, slightly less so, Australia) is an exception to the modern social-democratic society of the West, whose self-indulgent and secularist welfare-junkies are happy to leave the job of producing the next generation to Muslim immigrants. The stupidity inherent in this structural fault in our society is exacerbated beyond measure by the fact that young Muslims are becoming more strongly ideological enemies of liberal society even as they benefit from its welfare subsidies and 'one-way toleration'. For a growing population, in which there are ever more radical young than 'moderate' elders, things can only get worse.

Islam is therefore ripe for a natural take-over of Europe, though the global jihad may be considered to be a violent pre-emption of that event. Steyn's proof is the nightly riots by 'youths' (of unknown description) in Paris that go unreported by the progressive news media; the murder and intimidation of critics of Islam in Holland and Denmark; the gang-rape of women by Muslims in Norway; antisemitic attacks up a thousand-fold around Europe; and women all over Europe intimidated into wearing long dresses and head-scarves because they live on estates with large immigrant populations.

America is an exception in having a religious rather than a welfare-state birth-rate; yet even America is also vulnerable to demographic defeat.

Well written and holding back no punches, this book serves as a warning to those societies which combine strong centralised state control (e.g. heavily subsidised welfare state and pensions) with a historty of high levels of immigration and multiculturalism.

The point is well made; it doesn't matter what side of the fence you sit, once society's demographics have changed, with more people arriving from, or born into other cultures not attuned to the specific Western (read British, American, Canadian, French, Dutch, etc) culture, conflict is bound to increase, as each grouping within society vies for power. And as the elites give more ground to minority cultural groups, so society will shift away from the liberal (free speech) democratic (freedom of voting choice) path it has followed for the last 60-70 years. Steyn doesn't predict a collapse of society any time soon, more an erosion of social values and expectations such that our grandchildren will be born into a world very different (i.e. a lot less free and tolerant, with far more social strife) from the one in which we live today.

A great book, soon to be banned in Britain/France/Netherlands too?

When I purchase and read the latest copy of The Western Standard, which is a Canadian conservative (yes, there is such a thing!) news magazine, the first article I always turn to is the column by Mark Steyn. For this reason, I purchased a copy of America Alone. As usual, Mr. Steyn brings to the readers attention the details that the politically correct mainstream media refuses to report. This book should be a compulsory read for all citizens of voting age in the Western democracies. Whether or not the book would open the eyes of a populace that has been fed a steady of diet of moral relativism/root cause/moral equivalance/multiculturalism by our self hating Leftist establishment would be interesting to find out.
Alas, Europe is now very likely a lost cause. Steyn's anology of the neutron bomb is right on the money; Europe within a generation or two will still have it's historic buildings and landmarks, but there just won't be any people with enlightened Western Christian based values living there. They will have been replaced by Muslims living under Sharia Law. Once that has happened, it remains to be seen whether or not the United States can survive in a Muslim dominated world bent on the destruction of The Great Satan.
The final irony is that Liberals who are so tolerant of everything will in the end find themselves living under the most intolerant religious political system ever devised.
UPDATE: Since I last posted this review on the Canadian Amazon.ca site, author Mark Steyn is being harrassed by the Canadian Human Rights Commission, a "pseudo" court operating outside the Canadian legal system which goes out of it's way to muzzle free speech. Canada, wake up. Our freedoms are under attack because we are so obsessed with political correctness.

In this book, Mark Steyn distills the essence of the danger that modern pluralistic societies face in confronting the Islamists and their de facto sympathisers in Western communities and cultural elites. This is a superb and persuasive summation of the of nature of the conflict which will face all of us increasingly in the future whoever we are, whether conservative or feminist, gay or straight, or anyone who is not an Islamist. Its rocketing up the bestseller charts is a sign of its relevance in these times. If you read one book this year, make this book that book.
