Baker & Taylor
Offers examples of the qualities that make America a deserved leader of the Western world, as well as a target for criticism and terrorism, and refutes four major critiques.

Perseus Publishing

Bestselling author Dinesh D'Souza takes on all of America's critics and proves them wrong -- as perhaps only a writer with an immigrant's understanding of this country can. He defends not an idealized America, but America as it really is, and measures America not against utopia, but against the rest of the world in a provocative, challenging book.

Book News
Conservative writer D'Souza celebrates a conservative conception of patriotism, argues that the United States and the West in general are responsible for all the good in the world, dismisses international and domestic critics. Among the ideas argued in his book: outsiders hate us because we are "great and noble," the U.S. should be seen as having ended slavery (rather than having perpetuated it), British and American colonialism brought progress to the backward third world countries, and the United States started going down the tubes when young people in the 1960s rejected god and started propagating the dangerous ideas of Jean Jacques Rousseau.

& Taylor
