With three straight #1 bestsellers and more than 4 million copies of his books in print, the most powerful traditional force in the American media now takes off his gloves in the ongoing struggle for America's heart and soul. Bill O'Reilly is the very embodiment of the idea of a Culture Warrior--and in this book he lives up to the title brilliantly, with all the brashness and forthrightness at his command. He sees that America is in the midst of a fierce culture war between those who embrace traditional values and those who want to change America into a secular-progressive country. This is a conflict that differs in many ways from the usual liberal/conservative divide, but it is no less heated, and the stakes are even higher. In Culture Warrior, Bill O'Reilly defines this war and analyzes the competing philosophies of the traditionalist and secular-progressive camps. He examines why the nation's motto E Pluribus Unum (From Many, One) might change to What About Me?; dissects the forces driving the secular-progressive agenda in the media and behind the scenes, including George Soros, George Lakoff, and the ACLU; and dives into matters of race, education, and the war on terror. He also shows how the culture war has played out in such high-profile instances as The Passion of the Christ, Fahrenheit 9/11, the abuse epidemic (child and otherwise), and the embattled place of religion in public life--with special emphasis on the war against Christmas. Whatever controversies are roiling the nation, he fearlessly confronts them--and no one will be in the dark about which side he's on. Culture Warrior showcases Bill O'Reilly at his most eloquent and impassioned. He is an unrelenting fighter for the soul of America, and in this book he fights the good fight for the traditional values that have served this country so well for so long.
Very good. Appearance of only slight previous use. Cover and binding show a little wear. All pages are undamaged with potentially only a few, small markings. Help save a tree. Buy all your used books from Thriftbooks. Read. Recycle and Reuse.
I love the way O'Reiley speaks through his writings. Honest,informative and very interesting.Makes you want to be a culture warrior,also.

Fair and Balanced?
Mr. O'Reilly gives a brief history of some of the most sweeping changes in US society that have gone on with relatively little fan fare. Although he can not resist taking some jabs at what he calls secular progressives, I thought that the history of that particular movement is well documented. He does take the time to give his own first hand experiences in the "trenches" and does identify "warriors" on the other side.
If you are not a political person, it is an interesting read. It is a little scary at times what is going on the US especially when it comes to the Justice system. I think that he accurately exposes SP ideas and dissects them, because in actuality they all sound like very good goals.
It is a very quick stimulating read that you can definitely do in a day if you wanted to. It just might change your perspective on some things.

Mr. O'Reilly brings up the subtle things the media tries to slip by us. He is fair and balanced and very enlightening! Glad he's looking out for us!
