My old--very old--friend George Abbott, the director of ON THE TOWN, DAMN YANKEES, and PAL JOEY, died in 1995 at the age of 107 while working on a revival of THE PAJAMA GAME. A few years earlier, in his late nineties, he'd given up playing tennis because all his partners had died. That's the position America is facing in respect to its transnational social life: it'll be turning up to the G-8, NATO, and the EU-US summit only to find that all its partners had died. (from the first line)
From the Publisher:
Arguing that the anti-Americanism of Europe may force America to stand alone in the world against global terrorism and other threats, the author paints a chilling portrait of a nation surrounded by enemies and less-than-loyal allies.
Annotation:
Conservative commentator Mark Steyn addresses the problem of world-wide anti-Americanism with acerbic, witty, insightful, and sometimes frightful, scenarios of a future in which Europe falls to Islamists and America is under assault. In Steyn's view, if America is shunned by the rest of the world, it must go it alone in an "us-or-them" world--and it must prevail.

Praise

"Steyn is a modern Savonarola, a fusion of John the Baptist and Nostradamus, preaching to anybody who'll listen that the rapid change in global demography and the Islamisation of Europe will leave the US as the sole survivor of Western culture by the end of the next generation. Terrifying stuff, but Steyn is possibly the funniest man alive and his book is a gag a minute. Forget stand-up comedians who sweat nightly on stage to make their audiences laugh: any 10 lines of Steyn's book will have you laughing hysterically until you realise he's writing with profound insight into the most terrorising of all subjects: Islamic fanaticism....It's one of the sharpest books on this subject and also the most terrifying." - Alan Gold 01/06/2007
