The three-time presidential candidate provides a provocative examination of the terrrifying decline of Western culture and power due to many events in the world, including decreasing birth rates combined with population explosions in Africa, Asia, and Latin America that will cause a dramatic shift in world power and will have a profound impact on the economy, culture, and international relationships.

Patrick J Buchanan's contentious premise in The Death of the West is that the United States is no longer a healthy melting pot, but instead a confused, tottering "conglomeration of peoples with almost nothing in common." Relying on United Nations population statistics, and citing such diverse sources as Yogi Berra and Rhett Butler, Buchanan sees for America four "clear and present dangers": declining birth rates; uncontrolled immigration of peoples of "different colours, creed and cultures"; a rise of "anti-Western" culture antithetical to established religious, cultural and moral norms; and a "defection of ruling elites" to the idea of world government. His solutions include higher wages and tax breaks for parents than for singles, a dramatic rollback of immigration quotas and a National History Bee. Buchanan's volatile, adamant book eschews any middle ground. Readers will either applaud his ideas or be repulsed by them. --H O'BillovitchReview:
Buchanan is an honest writer who opens his mind and psyche in a way few people can...He minces nothing except an occasional opponent. "The Philadelphia Inquirer""
