Abstract:

"With What's So Great About America, Dinesh D'Souza is not asking a question, but making a statement. Dinesh D'Souza former White House policy analyst and bestselling author argues that in the aftermath of September 11, 2001, American ideals and patriotism should not be things we shy away from. Provocative, challenging, and personal D'Souza's book offers the grounds for a solid, well-considered pride in the Western pillars of "science, democracy and capitalism," while deconstructing arguments from both the political left and political right. As an "outsider" from India who has had amazing success in the United States, D'Souza defends not an idealized America, but America as it really is" --Cover, p. 4.
