Ann Coulter, whose examination of the Clinton impeachment was a major national bestseller and earned widespread praise, has taken on an even even wider and more controversial issue in Slander.
At a time when Democrats and Republicans should be overwhelmingly congenial, American political debate has become increasingly hostile, overly personal, and insufferably trivial. Whether conducted in Congress or on the political talk shows, played out at dinners or cocktail parties, politics is a nasty sport. And, in Coulter's opinion, it is 'the liberals' who are to blame.
Cultlike in their behavior, vicious in their attacks on Republicans, and in almost complete control of mainstream national media, Coulter asserts that the left has been merciless in portraying all conservatives as dumb, racist, power hungry, homophobic, and downright scary. This, she points out, despite the many Republican accomplishments of the last few decades, as well as the Bush administration’s expert handling of the country’s affairs in the wake of the worst attacks on American soil and of the war that followed.
With incisive reasoning and meticulous research, Ann Coulter examines the events and personalities that have shaped modern political discourse—the bickering, backstabbing, and name-calling that have made cultural mountains out of partisan molehills. She argues how the media, especially, are biased—and usually wrongheaded—and have done all in their power to obfuscate the issues and the people behind them, in the process villainizing the right, while rarely missing an opportunity to praise the left.
An unabashedly conservative look at modern U.S. politics, Slander is sure to provoke discussion and opinions amongst students.
“Ann Coulter is one of the fiery new breed of conservative commentators who don’t worry what the Establishment thinks of them.” —Robert D. Novak
“The conservative movement has found its diva.” —Bill Maher

“One of the twenty most fascinating women in politics.” —George magazine
