Diana West’s answer to the astonishing attack on her book American Betrayal, initiated by David Horowitz and Ronald Radosh, is now available as an ebook and in print. I’m honored and humbled to be included among the many authors who came to the defense of Diana’s work. From her website today:
As some of you may be aware (chortle, chortle), American Betrayal came in for a little flack in the past couple of months.
As I marshalled my forces — all 22,000 words’ worth — many filled the breach with eloquent, passionate, heartfelt defenses both of my book and of free and civil debate overarchingly. I didn’t want these missives from the front to disappear into Internet ether. This amazing record of intellectual battle in real time needed a repository. To that end, I have published both my rebuttal, which originally appeared in three parts at Breitbart News, and a selection of these essays written in my behalf in a new book, The Rebuttal: Defending American Betrayal from the Book-Burners. Authors include Andrew Bostom, Vladimir Bukovsky, Donald Douglas, Edward Cline, M. Stanton Evans, Ruth King, Clare M. Lopez, Ned May, R.S. McCain, Takuan Seiyo, Cindy Simpson, David Solway, John L. Work and more.
