A latest work by the author of Day of Reckoning identifies the risks facing America today and what they mean for the nation's future, urging Republicans to embrace the party's core values to protect against what he argues will be irrevocable economic compromises in the face of liberal policy-making and globalization. 250,000 first printing.

McMillan Palgrave

America is disintegrating. The "one Nation under God, indivisible" of the Pledge of Allegiance is passing away. In a few decades, that America will be gone forever. In its place will arise a country unrecognizable to our parents. This is the thrust of Pat Buchanan's Suicide of a Superpower, his most controversial and thought-provoking book to date.

Buchanan traces the disintegration to three historic changes: America's loss of her cradle faith, Christianity; the moral, social, and cultural collapse that have followed from that loss; and the slow death of the people who created and ruled the nation. And as our nation disintegrates, our government is failing in its fundamental duties, unable to defend our borders, balance our budgets, or win our wars.

How Americans are killing the country they profess to love, and the fate that awaits us if we do not turn around, is what Suicide of a Superpower is all about.

& Taylor

Identifies the risks facing the United States in the near future, urging Republicans to embrace the party's core values to protect against irrevocable economic compromises in the face of liberal policy-making and globalization.
Buchanan's latest polemic exposes the risks America faces today and what those dangers will mean for the country's future. He warns against not only the dangers that the country faces under Obama, but also the risk of sliding into irrelevancy that the Republican party faces if it chooses to forget its core values.

Those who would change society begin by changing the meaning of words. At Howard University, LBJ changed the meaning of equality from the attainable — an end to segregation and a legislated equality of rights for African-Americans — to the impossible: a socialist utopia.

Where equality is enthroned, freedom is extinguished. The rise of the egalitarian society means the death of the free society.

The last consequence of a dying Christianity is a dying people. Not one post-Christian nation has a birth rate sufficient to keep it alive….The death of European Christianity means the disappearance of the European tribe, a prospect visible in the demographic statistics of every Western nation.

If [Christopher] Dawson is correct, the drive to de-Christianize America, to purge Christianity from the public square, public schools and public life, will prove culturally and socially suicidal for the nation.

We have accepted today the existence in perpetuity of a permanent underclass of scores of millions who cannot cope and must be carried by society — fed, clothed, housed, tutored, medicated at taxpayer’s expense their entire lives. We have a dependent nation the size of Spain in our independent America. We have a new division in our country, those who pay a double or triple fare, and those who ride forever free.

Paleoconservative commentator Pat Buchanan has a number of titles dealing with American decline, but this one is the most relevant in my opinion. Much of his analysis of what is happening to the United States culturally and politically is very spot-on. The weakest point of the book is the emphasis on preserving the Christian identity of the United States, a statistical reality which will ironically survive the demographic changes Buchanan draws attention to elsewhere in the text. And considering how devoted the churches are to our colonization by the third world… He is still a very accessible author with good instincts about what is going wrong, but keep in mind that he gets to be a public figure because he stays just within the Overton window. Still a great read.
