In a follow-up to her number one bestseller Slander, leading conservative pundit Ann Coulter contends that liberals have been wrong on every single foreign policy issue, from the fight against Communism at home and abroad, the Nixon and the Clinton presidencies, and the struggle with the Soviet empire right up to today’s war on terrorism. “Liberals have a preternatural gift for always striking a position on the side of treason,” says Coulter. “Everyone says liberals love America, too. No, they don’t.” 

Reexamining the sixty-year history of the Cold War and beyond—including the career of Senator Joseph McCarthy, the Whittaker Chambers-Alger Hiss affair, Ronald Reagan’s challenge to Mikhail Gorbachev to “tear down this wall,” the Gulf War, and our present war on terrorism—Coulter reveals how liberals have been so horribly wrong in all of their political analyses and policy prescriptions. McCarthy, partially vindicated by the secret Venona project messages, was basically right about Soviet agents working for the US government: Alger Hiss did turn out to be a high-ranking Soviet spy. Reagan, ridiculed throughout his presidency for scandals which resulted in the the investigation, indictment, or conviction of over 138 administration officials, still ended up winning the Cold War. And George W. Bush, also an object of ridicule and scorn, has performed exceptionally well in responding to America’s newest threats at home and abroad.

Coulter, who in Slander exposed a clear liberal bias in today’s media, also examines how history, especially in the latter half of the twentieth century, has been written by liberals and, therefore, completely distorted by their perspective. Far from being irrelevant today, her clearheaded and piercing view of what we’ve been through informs us perfectly for challenges today and in the future. 

With Slander, Ann Coulter became the most recognized and talked-about conservative intellectual of the year. Treason, in many ways an even more controversial book, will ignite impassioned political debate at one of the most crucial moments in our history.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe | 1/22/2014

    " Excellent weekend read with great information about the 'red scare' that many people do not know. I was surprised how much of the book is based not only in this time period but in documented fact concerning the red scare of the late 1940s and 1950s. An excellent read, especially for those educated in public schools. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 L.H. Nail | 1/18/2014

    " Don't always agree with Coulter but loved this book and did not expect to. Did some follow up research about McCarthy afterwards and found her account to not only be corroborated by history, but MISREPRESENTED in current teaching. I felt like I was in a really entertaining history class. As to the Verona Project - shame on the media for failing to clear Joe's name. I was a fool to ever bought into the whole "McCarthyism" mantra. The man did the nation a favor, had tons of proof to back his claims and was excoriated for it. Shame on us. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Naomi | 1/18/2014

    " I thought AC laid out her claims nicely in this book. I read this during a time in which I read all of her works. I haven't quite figured out if she has become more radical or I have become less radical because I won't touch her books now. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jaclyn | 1/11/2014

    " Recommended by a friend who said I was too liberal after my time in education to dispell the "rumors" of Arthur Miller being witch-hunted in the fifties...interesting research. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sheridan | 1/9/2014

    " This woman's caustic and bitchy attacks are funny, and do make you rub your chin in thought. Unfortunately, most of the thought for me was about trying to understand what she was on about, as there was a huge assumption on her side that because you were reading the book, you were politically well educated - particularly in American politcs. I was a little lost on the details at times, but still managed to get the jokes. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Dan | 1/6/2014

    " i would have given it zero stars, but then it would just look like i didn't bother giving it a rating. can i give it less than one star? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bill Parr | 12/31/2013

    " Funny at times, but became tiresome. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael Ware | 12/31/2013

    " I love her brand of crazy. This book is actually laid out logical and agrued well. I agree with her politics, so it is easy for me to be entertained. This was the better of the three I have read. To me, she is the WWE of political commentary. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kris | 10/3/2013

    " I started laughing at Coulter's ability to be a full-blown, conservative, Neo-Nazi quack. But then it just got boring. There's only so much nonsense an intelligent mind can take, ya know? "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ilovebooks14 | 9/22/2013

    " Why does she have so many fucking books? They all have the same message; that liberals suck. Get over yourself Ms.Coulter. Just because you can write 500 books all saying the same thing doesn't mean your great. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pat | 7/28/2013

    " If you haven't read it you are completely uninformed. Like nothing you knew before. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeremy Hatfield | 5/9/2013

    " Unlike many of her more recent books, which tend to be recycled op-ed articles, this book is a very well-researched account of what happened during the McCarthy years. Liberals tend to malign McCarthy in an attempt to discredit what he was on to. Coulter shows that, in many regards, he was right. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rogan Hazard | 3/4/2013

    " A briliant book. Should be read by everyone who wants to understand what really happened in the 20th century. It is so hard to get information that is not distorted through the filter of leftist disinformation, but this book exposes many generally accepted myths of history. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Cheryl Vitale | 2/7/2013

    " A Christmas gift, never did finish reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ernie Dawson | 10/7/2012

    " Ann is quite the author with a superb vocabulary. You might want to have a dictionary on hand when reading her. The by line of her book here is "Liberal Treachery from the Cold War to the War on Terrorism. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephen K. | 8/2/2012

    " Kinda over my head... But she is just a brain! She knows her stuff! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cade | 5/3/2012

    " My favorite of hers so far. Great writer, funny, hated by liberals, and intelligent. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marcia | 2/29/2012

    " I wish Ann Coulter wasn't so crass, she is kinda hard to tolerate sometime, but always very interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Curtiss | 12/12/2011

    " Another of Ann Coulter's collection of political diatribes at the expense of the liberal left, filled with her usual ascerbic wit. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel | 11/28/2011

    " Love her or hate her, this chick can bring it and back it up w/ fact. I think this is a very usefull history type book, esp. now in the midst of a generation who just voted for the most powerful man in the free world on the basis of nothing more than a popularity contest. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Richard B | 8/16/2011

    " Good update of what was found in the Venona documents. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trent | 6/19/2011

    " Lots of good background. Coulter specifically pinpoints how socialism has infiltrated the US Political System. Like all of her books, has good information, entertaining to read, but leaves me with the, "OK...now what?" feeling. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 6/3/2011

    " Really great points. I couldn't agree with her more.

    I LOVE ANN COULTER!!!
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 4/17/2011

    " The usual Ann book. Caustic, confrontational in her polemicist style. Lots of pulls from her weekly columns and TV appearances with some added editorializing at the beginning of each chapter. As usual, entertaining and informative. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 J.E. | 1/13/2011

    " Mean-spirited jokes for people who enjoy that sort of thing. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ilovebooks14 | 12/27/2010

    " She represents what's wrong with society. And that is unwillingness to accept other people's beliefs. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laura | 8/9/2010

    " What Ann Coulter lacks in tact, she makes up for tenfold in insults and witty comebacks. I don't think she wrote more than 20 pages of this book...the rest is just quotations from her column and more extreme interviews. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bradley | 7/26/2010

    " Wow. Political satire is alive and well. She even says many things I agree with. Who knew? Very interesting book. =0 "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ash | 5/26/2010

    " I have read her other books and this one is different in one way-no new material. If you have read her other books or her articles, then it's not worth it. It is basically the collection of her work, a complete and unoriginal review of all of the same things that she talks about all day long. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nancy | 2/17/2010

    " Recycled stuff from her other books. She is funny at times, but this is sort of a cheap lets make a buck off of people sort of thing. nothing really original here. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly | 1/14/2010

    " ok so i havent really read he book itself but i LOVE the title!!!!!!!!!! "
