Lucid, Funny, Controversial,
This review is from: America Alone: The End of the World as We Know It (Paperback)
Mark Steyn was one of the reasons I used to read The Spectator - so I'm a fan.
He's not right on everything by any means - he was predicting the iminent capture of Osama Bin Laden by the US around five years ago, for instance - and neither is the USA.
But then, no person is always right, likewise no nation; while Steyn is occasionally too enthusiastic in his cheerleading for the United States, his essential point - that to live in the modern West is to live in the free-est, fairest and safest civilisation the world has ever seen - that's 'ever' - is surely correct.
It isn't perfect, and neither is this book. But I give both 4/5.
