“Liberals’ loyalty to the United States is off-limits as a subject of political debate. Why is the relative patriotism of the two parties the only issue that is out of bounds for rational discussion?”

In a stunning follow-up to her number one bestseller Slander, leading conservative pundit Ann Coulter contends that liberals have been wrong on every 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.” From Truman to Kennedy to Carter to Clinton, America has contained, appeased, and retreated, often sacrificing America’s best interests and security. With the fate of the world in the balance, liberals should leave the defense of the nation to conservatives.

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 horribly wrong in all their political analyses and policy prescriptions. McCarthy, exonerated by the Venona Papers if not before, was basically right about Soviet agents working for the U.S. government. Hiss turned out to be a high-ranking Soviet spy (who consulted Roosevelt at Yalta). Reagan, ridiculed throughout his presidency, ended up winning the Cold War. And George W. Bush, also an object of ridicule, has performed exceptionally in responding to America’s newest threats at home and abroad.

Coulter, who in Slander exposed a 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, 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 and prescient book, will ignite impassioned political debate at one of the most crucial moments in our history.

    " Tell it like it is. 5* "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenni | 2/12/2014

    " My favorite Coulter book. Brilliant piece on McCarthy. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tara | 2/8/2014

    " She is scary. Fanaticals are scary no matter who's views they believe, think: Michael Moore as a case agains Democrats. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 2/5/2014

    " Engaging, as Coulter always is, but this one felt a little less relevant. (It wasn't written recently). McCarthyism isn't used as a slight nowadays so I wasn't as interested in the subject matter. But still, it was well-researched and thorough. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Cheryl Vitale | 2/4/2014

    " A Christmas gift, never did finish reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jay | 2/1/2014

    " I love Coulter, I love her sharp and acerbic wit and mastery of the language. Occasionally her use of irony itself can be obfuscated in context and it appears she's saying the opposite of what she means, causing a double-take. An eye-opening book, mixing both fact and opinion. I felt that even if I disagreed with her assertions (which I don't: I think she nails it) you gotta respect her presentation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike | 1/30/2014

    " Interesting arguments. I never thought I'd ever read someone defending Joe McCarthy...but she sure did it well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeremy Hatfield | 1/23/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marcia | 1/16/2014

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

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ilovebooks14 | 1/13/2014

    " 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 Naomi | 1/13/2014

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 K | 1/7/2014

    " Excellent. Went through it twice. Good the hear the other side of McCarthyism. One of these..We did what?!!! books "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brian Nord | 12/18/2013

    " distortion and fabrication of history "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kris | 12/18/2013

    " 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? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Curtiss | 12/13/2013

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

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ernie Dawson | 12/10/2013

    " 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. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bill Parr | 8/22/2013

    " Funny at times, but became tiresome. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel | 8/8/2013

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andy Pullen | 7/17/2013

    " If you like Ann Coulter, you will enjoy her books. I have "read" this one and have another that I have not read yet. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael Ware | 5/8/2013

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris | 3/23/2013

    " Actually a good book, A good read for a democrat that is not a hard left person. A true conservative can appreciate this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dean Akin | 12/27/2012

    " Very informative book on the McCarthy era and how Joseph McCarthy turned out to be right but never vindicated. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trent | 10/25/2012

    " 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. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mike | 6/25/2012

    " This chick is to right wing for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark Peacock | 2/3/2012

    " In the first half of this book you get an insight to Ann's thinking and she sxposes you to an intellicual and historical perspective of how we got into the condition we're in. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephen K. | 1/27/2012

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

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark Cooper | 10/14/2011

    " Coulter outlines how Democrats have fought this country and its goals for more than 60 years. "

  • 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!!!!!!!!!! "
