4-0 out of 5 stars A Great Bathroom Book
Before I begin, I must state, that I have read this book... unlike many Amazon 'reviewers.'
3-0 out of 5 stars Though not in complete agreement, I nodded A LOT!
I bought this book after seeing Mr. Goldberg on the Today show.I was not sure what I would think after reading his book and was surprised to find that while reading, I was nodding more than shaking my head.I liked Mr. Goldberg's style of writing - similar to how I reactively think - but I did find him a bit repetitive.He also made a lot of sweeping generalizations that made me roll my eyes and skip ahead a couple paragraphs.
2-0 out of 5 stars Unenjoyable
This hardcore conservative did not enjoy this book.The book is filled with a wealth of eye-opening information on significant people that I did not know but should (like Hugo Chavez's new best friend, Noam Chomsky), but the reading is so laborious and draining that I cannot recommend it.It has none of the light-hearted fun that we often get from Rush Limbaugh.Rather, it brought to mind the dark experience of listening alone to Michael Savage in a bad mood after dark.The cheeky title is misleading - this was a joyless book to read. ...

Editorial Review

The thesis of this provocative and potentially important book is the increasing threat of violence arising from renewed conflicts between countries and cultures that base their traditions on religious faith and dogma. This argument moves past the notion of ethnicity to examine the growing influence of a handful of major cultures--Western, Eastern Orthodox, Latin American, Islamic, Japanese, Chinese, Hindu, and African--in current struggles across the globe. Samuel P. Huntington, a political scientist at Harvard University and foreign policy aide to President Clinton, argues that policymakers should be mindful of this development when they interfere in other nations' affairs. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars 8 Civilizations Or Political Groups?
There aren't really 8 civilizations. The Western European, Eastern European and Latin Americans are all from different branches of a same Judeo-Christian civilization despite their political differences. Japanese is obviously a branch of the Confucian civilization despite their huge economic success. The African world is really split between the Islamic and Judeo-Christian civilizations. So we only have the Judeo-Christian, Confucian, Islamic and Indian civilizations.

5-0 out of 5 stars A prelude ......
This book is one of the introductory 'literature' preceding and preparing for the principal and more important actions a small bit of which we are witnessing nowadays.
5-0 out of 5 stars Magnum Opus
This is the eminent Professor Huntinton's magnum opus, and it deserves to be read. No one can profess an understanding of modern global politics without studying this masterful work which was written in 1996.It remains a treasury of prophetic insights for our present day.

Editorial Review

This forceful, sarcastic, and often hilarious book offers tips on arguing with liberals, which include the following: don't be defensive, always outrage the enemy, and never apologize to, compliment, or show graciousness to a Democrat. Welcome to the world according to Ann Coulter. Ever combative, Coulter is unafraid to court controversy or confront her detractors head-on, whether they are mainstream journalists and talk-show hosts who have misquoted her without apology or "weak and frightened conservatives" craving liberal approval. Though the writing is often over-the-top, the book if full of one-liners that will delight conservatives, such as "the best way to convert liberals is to have them move out of their parents' home, get a job, and start paying taxes." But there is more here than just insults and countless jabs at Bill Clinton, and even her most devoted readers will find much new material in the book. Largely a collection of her syndicated columns from the past decade, Read more

Sometimes she raves and sometimes she rants, the really interesting parts are when she tries to do both at the same time.
1-0 out of 5 stars Not Like Seeing Her In Person
Having seen Ann Coulter once it is rather hard to catagorize this book, especially in view of how she acts in person and her "vocabulary" off camera. Since I generally review military books I will try to stick with that topic.

1-0 out of 5 stars Laura can have an opinion - Entertainers can't!
Ingraham is an elite herself.Her opinion is valid, why?Because she is not a entertainer?Does she mention that the 'great' Ronald Reagan was an entertainer?So you can be an entertainer with a legitimate view, but you should have the same view as Laura!Subverting America?Doesn't every American have the right to speak, the duty to speak, their mind?I'd tell Laura to shut up and write, but that wouldn't be polite now would it?Of course being polite/charitable isn't a concern of the right wing.

3-0 out of 5 stars Solid Republican conservatism
Ingraham rails against elitism in six separate areas: politics, media, arts andentertainment, ivory tower (academia), business, and international organizations.For the most part, she makes her points with solid references, especially to the liberal Hollywood actors and actresses who seem to think that because we pay to watch them play dress-up, they are entitled to tell us who to vote for.It's a relevant and eye-opening book about the state of America today and why changes need to be made.

4-0 out of 5 stars Solid conservative writing
Shut Up and Sing by Laura Ingraham is an insightful look into not only the liberal elite but how conservatives view them.Ingraham's book is similar to Ann Coulter's Slander and Women Who Make the World Worse by Kate O'Beirne, but better in that she explains things with so much more detail.It does seem that the same stories about unhinged liberals seem to circulate from book to book.I've read the same crazy stories in all three of these books, plus a few that were in Michael Savage's The Enemy Within.I would have to place this book near the top of the heap of this kind of writing.Ingraham doesn't engage in name-calling and backs up her writing with lots of source material.Her voice in writing is straight-forward without the histrionics that make up so much conservative writing.My one complaint is that she seems to see Communism everywhere.Maybe I'm naive, but I thought that The Red Scare was over.Not according to Ingraham, and she doesn't come off as a quack, she's got the sources to back herself up.Scary reading. ...

My life is no longer run by fear.After reading 20-30 conspirator books, I see nothing but some facts with weak links targeted to intelligent people that become an elitist to fight against other elitists. Look at some of the major failures."Population bomb" predicted 1/2 the world starving to death by 1980.Y2K embarrassment.Rapture, baised on liberal and bad Bible theology.Wise people need to spend their time with real people on local problems that are real and fixable.

Jones belongs to that school of thought that believes behind every failure of a system, or every historical cycle, there lies a guilty party. This search for conspirators is the sort of thing that generally leads to pogroms and inquisitions.

Editorial Review

After the terrorist attacks of September 11,many Americans yearned to understand why Muslim extremists felt such passionate animosity toward the Western world, particularly the United States. Since that historic attack there have been many books and discussions about this very question, but few of them offer such a readable and relevant response as this excellent offering by renowned historian Bernard Lewis (Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Why democracy won't work in Islamic countries
This book gives a concise overview of why the U.S. is currently the target of so much animosity from Islamic terrorist groups and most Middle Eastern/Islamic countries. A previous reviewer said that this book is not for the layman, but I disagree; it is precisely for the layman that Lewis has written this book. If a reader wants more detail, then he knows what to search for once he has read Lewis' book. Even without further research, the reader will have an understanding of the complicated history of the Middle East and the U.S.'s role in that history.
5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Read for those who wish to Understand the war
Before 9/11, I worked with a couple of Lebanese Engineers.They had both traveled to the United States and decided to stay and raise their families here.In the Spring of one year before 2001, they both decided to pack up their families and move back to Lebanon.I had a long conversation with one of them about the big move to such an "unstable" place.He told me that we were in a war but were too ignorant to realize it.Of course, I laughed...what war?Another person of Middle Eastern descent told me to read something written by Bernard Lewis...his was the most honest depiction of the middle east.I've read Mr. Lewis since then, including "The Crisis of Islam: Holy War and Unholy Terror."A must read for all americans who wish to understand this war we've been in since....2000.

3-0 out of 5 stars Mostly history, the rest...weak analysis
The Crisis of Islam is presented in such a way that it makes the reader think he or she will be getting in-depth analysis of Islamist terrorism in the post 9/11 world.However, this book is largely a very brief historical crash course most likely intended for those casual observers of international politics.If the book had been presented as a historical book, I most likely would have come away with a more favorable impression, but when you expect one thing and get another, it will affect your perception.

5-0 out of 5 stars (very) good questions...
Having never really questioned the official account of 9/11 until recently (this fifth anniversary seems to generate a bit more buzz than usual) I was only curious to read what one of the most prominent 9/11 "alternative analysts" had to say. Well, after reading this, I am not sure what to believe anymore, but I sure know what to NOT believe: any single word of the official account.

2-0 out of 5 stars Overly Opinionated
I'll admit that the official story of the events on September 11 are suspect. But that's all I will conclude. The way the story unfolds in the media and the explanations for it all appear to be hiding some evidence. Why? I don't know, and frankly, after reading the author's very slanted view of events, am even less interested to find out. I was interested in reading the facts and evidence that exist, but his whole book was one big conspiracy theory strung together by edited quotes and simplified facts. And his summary about not fighting the Axis of Good was just over the top. Maybe the truth would only hurt us more than we know. Call me naive and ignorant, but I would rather live my life with a "half full" mentality. I enjoy my life and the choices I am able to make in America and since I have not the power to change the unfortunate events of Sept 11, I'll continue to live my humble life and not waste any more time worrying, fearing, and doubting the catastrophic events of that day. What will that accomplish? What I will continue to do is pay respect and remember the 2,000+ lives that were lost - people I didn't know - but sons, daughters, wives, husbands, friends, moms, etc.

2-0 out of 5 stars Painfully Stupid
Eric Hufschmid believes that Bush and Cheney and the entire government were involved in a large conspiracy to take down the WTC towers and building 7, as well as the Pentagon and another target. To believe this one must not answer the "painful question" of "Is the government's story a cover-up?" but "Is our bumbling and stumbling government capable of pulling this off?"

The sins of child molesters, thieves and murderers pale in comparison to the crimes of the Bush family and the Democrats and Republicans who turned their heads on 9/11.

5-0 out of 5 stars An elegiac last call from the greatest American author
Kurt Vonnegut has his detractors, some of whom can be found reviewing this book, but thankfully he also has numerous fans -- and you can put me at the forefront of his supporters any day. In this work (which will most likely be the now eighty-four year old author's last) Vonnegut looks back at the life he has lived, the people he has met, those who have influenced him, the world he has inhabited, and reflects on where the human race seems to be headed. Surely there will be people who disagree with Vonnegut's politics, but what he is preaching (if anything) is the importance of kindness -- and, really, who could possibly find fault with that? He challenges his readers to stand up to the political machines, the corrupt corporations, et al and to hold on to their integrity in a world that no longer rewards honesty and hard work. Vonnegut certainly has no love for President Bush and the current administration -- which naturally provokes a knee-jerk defensive position from the conservatively inclined reader, but if you take the politics out of the equation you are left with what Vonnegut recommends to a man on page 107: "There's only one rule that I know of: Go****mn it, Joe, you've got to be kind!" Again, who could argue with that? Wouldn't the world be a better place -- and wouldn't life be a lot easier to live -- if we just made the modicum of effort that it takes to be nice to each other? Perhaps, being apolitical myself, it's easy for me to put aside my differences with Vonnegut and focus on what he is trying to say. There are also those who complain that Vonnegut is overly simplistic. Well, if I've learned anything it's that oftentimes the most obvious things are the hardest to see -- and if everyone already knew what Vonnegut is saying the world wouldn't need much fixing in the first place. Turkish author Orhan Pamuk just won the 2006 Nobel Prize in Literature, and I'm sure that he deserves it, but it just stupefies me that Vonnegut has never been honored with that prize during his long career. With a canon that includes "Mother Night" (my favorite Vonnegut book), "Slaughterhouse Five", "God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater", "Breakfast of Champions" and so much more he just seems like a great choice. And at eighty-four Vonnegut has lost none of his mental prowess and signature wit. If this elegiac work proves to be Vonnegut's last it would be a fitting, melancholy note to end his career on. I just can't help but selfishly hold onto the hope that he will be around a while longer to entertain us with his unique blend of comedy, tragedy, and poignant themes. God -- or whatever is out there -- bless you, Mr. Vonnegut.

3-0 out of 5 stars A master writer but not at his best
I have long been a fan of Kurt Vonnegut.Yes, he is a socialist and, yes, his writing is not balanced.He is espousing a point of view.Nothing is masked.I accept that and appreciate the wit and originality for what it is.He has written masterpieces of American literature and this is written as the words of an aging great man.
1-0 out of 5 stars ICONOCLASM TRUMPS TALENT
Not having read any of Vonnegut's work for 30 years, I opened A Man Without a Country and remembered why I'd SO assiduously avoided him. As a natural conservative I much enjoy the thrust and parry of lively political debate. But KV, like almost every socialist I've ever met, doesn't do debate, preferring mockery, innuendo, myth and wilfully distorted facts. It's the superior sneer of the self-styled intellectual who doesn't know what he's talking about. His unwavering belief in doctrinal socialism brings to mind a line from Emerson: "Foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds."

5-0 out of 5 stars God knows this was long overdue!
Estrich has finally dared to take on whom Al Franken once called the "reigning diva of the hysterical right", and really nails it, exposing her innacuracies, hypocrisy, and general hatefulness...notice how the 1-star reviews on this page do little more than attack the author's physical appearance, deride her for making the title a parody of Coulter's latest attack piece (um, didn't you neo-cons do the same 10 years ago w/"Al Franken is a Buck-Toothed Moron"?), and regurgitate conservative talking points (the book's an attack on GOPers, Christianity, etc.)..if you actually READ the book, you'd see it's actually a debunking of someone who's distorting these values you supposedly hold dear and making your party look bad by assocation. And if you do read the book, I'm sure you'll find it to be a real eye-opener.

1-0 out of 5 stars Trash!Trash!TRASH!
The author of this work of fiction must think it amusing to slander Christians, Republicans, and all those who know what the truth is and are not afraid to promulgate it.If Ms. Estrich were a true follower of the Jewish faith, which she clearly advertises by wearing the Star of David, she would not be writing this trash.For anyone who has read this fictitious piece of trash, do Right-wingers a favor and admit that liberals, including Susan Estrich, are wrong.

5-0 out of 5 stars Another score for Susan
In keeping with her tradition, Susan has written another insightful book that is not only well written and easy to read, but that truly informs.Well done, and keep them coming! ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars REVISIONIST HISTORY
I would like to remind the readers, who are crying over the fate of the poor victimized Palestinians, that every inch of the State of Israel was bought from these so-called victims, not only with blood, but with hard cash. Try to remember the little blue box marked "Keren HaKayemet," where even school children donated part of their allowances so more land could be purchased.
5-0 out of 5 stars The Lemon Tree will open your eyes
After years of seeing the Israel-Arab conflict through the eyes of an agenda driven media,I was pleasantly surprised to learn that behind the bombs and gunfire live very real human beings.Tolan's presentation is heartbreaking and very touching.For the first time I realised that there is two sides to this story and none of the parties can hope to get everything they want unless a compromise is reached.
5-0 out of 5 stars A wonderful reading journey
I just finished reading "The Lemon Tree" and I truly enjoyed it. Much of my reading took place during the most recent conflict/war in Lebanon. It is so sad that we still have to witness so much bloodshed.

5-0 out of 5 stars Offers strengthening conclusion to attest to religion's importance past, present and future.
Secular progressives have been predicting the demise of religion for over two hundred years; but even those who were to be liberated by such aren't agreeing: such is the message of THE GOD THAT DID NOT FAIL: HOW RELIGION BUILT AND SUSTAINS THE WEST explores both biblical faith and the rejection of its foundations, which has encouraged ignorance of its history as a central force in the development of the West. Readings of religion in ancient Greece and Rome, of Christianity and Judaism and through the decades offers strengthening conclusion to attest to religion's importance past, present and future.

1-0 out of 5 stars Thinkers Beware
If you have already concluded that a Christian Republican is an oxymoron, that conclusory statements supported only by anecdotal evidence constitutes a pursuasive argument, that debate is about who can shout and complain the loudest, then this book may be for you.Otherwise, do not waste your time with this book.
5-0 out of 5 stars What's Wrong with the Right
True to his word, Balmer writes as a jilted lover.He wastes no time in launching into an account the Religious Right's fixation on abortion and homosexuality, which he sees as paradigmatic of what is wrong with the Religious Right.According to Balmer, their fixation is not a function of religious or moral conviction so much as a result of political expediency.
5-0 out of 5 stars Bush republicans will not appreciate this book
Mr Balmer explains very well the connections between the Religious Right and the current administration/conservative republicans. They make use of the Old Testament to justify their policies on the environment and torture. Mr Balmer 's perspective comes from the teachings of Jesus and the New Testament. I tend to agree with him, although I am not a great believer/follower of organized Christianity. A good book if you disagree with legislated morality and government involvement in your daily life. If you need someone to tell you what to do, who to follow and what to believe, you will not appreciate this book. I see a few of these people have read and reviewed the book already. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The Devils Highway
Not being a avid reader ,if a book doesn't interest me in the first few pages I put it away. This certainly was not such a book. Written by a Mexican American I expected the story to be slanted toward anti immigration only to find a balanced view of the Border situation from the prospective of those desperate to make a better life for their familys, to the Border Patrol and the almost impossible job before them. Two things that stand out are the compassion of the Border Patrol and how the immigrants are so often preyed upon by their own people. A must read before making a judgement about our border situation and the people who live {and die} there.

2-0 out of 5 stars Misplaced Sympathy for an Invading Army
It seems like this book has appeal for the come one, come all immigration proponents and multiculturalism fanatics.I take no joy in hearing the stories of human suffering, whether it be south of the border or elsewhere, but there is a heavy cost for allowing millions of mexicans into America.Many locales with large illegal immigrant populations have seen a sharp increase in violent crime and gang activity.
5-0 out of 5 stars He may as well have been...
Jonathan Miles of MEN'S JOURNAL wrote this of Urrea's sublime tribute to the immigrant's journey, "A tour de force account of an adventure unlike the ones you're used to reading."And it's true.What makes THE DEVIL'S HIGHWAY shine is Urrea's ability to lend his novelist's eye to a story more true than most of us would like to imagine.For whatever side you hold in the Border debate, Urrea will make you believe in the people who walk. Even if he doesn't pull you toward empathy for those taking this journey, he will at least illuminate for you what happens to a group of men who feel like crossing the infamous Devil's Highway is the only option.From their first step into the desert to their rescue just short of the U.S. border, you will not want to put this book down.Urrea takes the magnifying glass that is the Border Control Issue and focuses that hot sun down to a small group later called the Wellton 26.Literally. Every step through this Pulitzer Prized Finalist will force you onto the desert with these men : walking with these men, following with these men, thirsting with these men, and dying with these men. Urrea has made me want to keep going.Luckily, in the rear of the book, he's given me more with suggested readings to further my lusty desire to ingest all I can about this issue. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Cohen's Book Offers Rare Insider Insight on Cable News
Jeff Cohen's new book Cable News Confidential offers readers a rare behind the scenes look at the 24 hour cable news world.Cohen describes his experiences at CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC. He offers many personal stories, which were always engaging and often quite humorous. They painted a clear picture of how conservatives control and frame the news we see on cable. While I have read many other books on this subject, I have never seen a book that offers as many crisp, clear examples of the way today's cable news industry operates.
