Is radical Islam the “new communism”? Should militant Muslims be immune from criticism on the grounds of religious tolerance? Is Sharia, or Islamic law, compatible with a free society?
Armed with keen insights, a biting wit, and demographic data that will shock and surprise you, columnist and best-selling author Mark Steyn makes the case that Islamic fundamentalism is as much political ideology as it is religion. Steyn’s latest book, America Alone: The End of the World as We Know It, takes on the cult of political correctness and presents the threat that radical Islam poses not only to American security, but to western civilization and ultimately to life as we know it.
One of the most widely read columnists in the English-speaking world, Steyn examines the demographic, cultural, and geopolitical trends that have led to the rise of Islamic fundamentalism in Europe – and the failure of Europeans to act in their own defense.
Mark Steyn, a winner of the Eric Breindel Award for Excellence in Opinion Journalism, writes for publications on four continents, including The Spectator, Jerusalem Post, The Australian, and National Review.
On September 6, please join the Goldwater Institute to learn why people are calling America Alone the most important book of the year.
This presentation is the first event in the Rose Law Group Distinguished Speaker Series.
