ďThe thing I quote most from it is the power of demographics... But the other part is a kind of confirmation of what I know ... that Islamist extremism has an ideology, and itís expansionist, itís an aggressive ideology. And the title I took to mean that we Americans will have ultimate responsibility for stopping this expansionism.Ē
Senator Joe Lieberman (Democrat of Connecticut)
Mark's bestselling book has now been read by Congressmen, Senators, Governors, and even†Presidents.
"Bush has circulated copies of Natan Sharansky's The Case for Democracy to his staff, and recommended Mark Steyn's America Alone"
The Weekly Standard
"Get these insightful books: Knowing The Enemy by Mary Habeck and America Alone by Mark Steyn."
Representatives John Shadegg (R - Arizona) and Pete Hoekstra (R - Michigan)
What they're saying about America Alone...
...in the US:
"The most important book of the year."
Milt Rosenberg, WGN
"If you were to buy only two books this year, get two copies of America Alone: one for your own edification as well as entertainment ...and one for the person you care most about."
David Solway, Books In Canada
"Terrifying stuff, but Steyn is possibly the funniest man alive and his book is a gag a minute... Any ten 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."
Alan Gold, The Australian
"No writer I can think of manages to combine utter bleakness about mankindís prospects with a genius for one-liners like Steyn... Steyn succeeds in packing a series of provocative contentions into this relatively short book in a way which demonstrates a serious engagement with some of the biggest issues in geopolitics. That he does so with humour, lightness of touch and brutal clarity, only demonstrates what a talented writer he is."
Michael Gove, The Spectator
"One of the world's leading conservative journalists, Mark Steyn, has now written an important book..."
Bertil Haggman, Director, Center for Research on Geopolitics
...in the Netherlands:
"He is extraordinarily spirited, writes splendidly, with neologisms and word combinations virtually untranslatable, but is also profound and visionary."
Chris Rutenfrans, De Volkskrant
"The most important non-fiction book of the year."
Hannes Stein, Die Welt
"A depressing prognosis that rings true - with laughs."
Martin Suter, Sonntagszeitung
"Mark Steyn fa la Cassandra (witty)."
Giulio Meotti, Il Foglio
...and in Israel:
"Mark Steyn's must-read new book."
Michael Freund, The Jerusalem Post

"This is by far the most powerful book Iíve read since we launched American Compass in January of 2004, and itís the one book I wish every American would read."
Brad Miner, American Compass Book Club
"The best read I have come across in some time."
John P Rossi, The Philadelphia Inquirer
"Buy this book. Now. America Alone by Mark Steyn is probably the most important book you'll read this year. The fact that it's also one of the funniest and most enjoyable to read is a happy coincidence."
Michael Graham, WTTK Boston
"Mark Steyn is the funniest writer alive and his humorous style makes America Alone entertaining and easy to read"
Dr Jerome C Arnett Jnr, The Journal Of American Physicians And Surgeons
"Mark Steyn is phenomenal - no other word will quite do... When it comes to jokes, word-play, zany allusions, far-fetched language, exaggeration, satirical mockery, scathing ribaldry, he displays so little respect for conventions of every kind as to elude almost any known literary category."
David Pryce-Jones, Commentary
"Being funny is hard. Being funny while writing about suicide bombings, apocalyptic fatwas, beheadings and all the other calling cards of murderous Islamists is just about impossible. In fact, there is only one columnist on the face of the planet who can do it."
Jonathan Kay, The New York Post
"One of the most gifted writer-commentators writing in English today, or indeed in any language... Never has an apocalyptic vision been presented in more amusing terms."
George Jonas, The National Post (Canada)
"Mark Steyn's essential, disturbing and darkly hilarious America Alone is the most amusing description of the destruction of a great civilization since that sly historian Gibbon put down his pen... It's as tragic as it is funny."
Andrew Stuttaford, Book Of The Year, The New York Sun
"For anyone who has constraints on their time but a desire to know how we arrived here and what is ahead, there are four indispensable books... Mark Steyn's America Alone is exactly the sort of unsparing dose of realism that Americans need to absorb, and soon."
Hugh Hewitt, "The Indispensable Bookshelf: The Books You Absolutely Positively Must Read", townhall.com
"Steyn is Canada's gift to the world."
Salim Mansur, The Toronto Sun
"I recently finished Mark Steyn's America Alone, which I believe should be mandatory reading for all US citizens ó indeed, I am tempted to make a close acquaintance with it a condition for citizenship... The book is at once hilarious and depressing."
Roger Kimball, co-publisher/editor, The New Criterion

America Alone: The End Of The World As We Know It brings together some of the big themes of Mark's writing in recent years - demography, the unsustainability of the welfare state, a resurgent Islam, and the west's loss of civilizational confidence. The result is an incisive examination of how the world could look the day after tomorrow, on the brink of a new Dark Ages. Permanence is the arrogant assumption of every era, and ours is no exception. But in Europe, the Middle East and beyond history is on the march, and moving very quickly.
This handsome hardback edition of America Alone: The End Of The World As We Know It is a bestseller in the US and Canada - and, if you order through SteynOnline, Mark will be happy to autograph your copy for you or a loved one.
