Scholar, journalist, and former White House policy analyst D'Souza addresses the various criticisms leveled at the superpower--decadence, colonialism, and racism--and explores the reasons so many people claim to hate America. He challenges arguments for reparations to African-Americans, contrasts American colonialism with the many imperialist regimes that preceded it, and underscores how America provides its citizens choices and freedoms unknown in his native India and in most of the Third World. His arguments are as cogent as they are controversial. D'Souza reads clearly and precisely. At times, he increases his vocal intensity for dramatic effect, but his voice generally remains flat, and his precision sometimes comes across as stilted. S.E.S.
