As a final wrap-up to the controversy over her book, Diana West has published her rebuttal in book form. In addition to her own 22,000-word “take-down” of Ronald Radosh, she has included reviews and essays by various other writers, some of whom will be familiar to regular Gates of Vienna readers.
She posted this announcement on her blog today:
As some of you may be aware (chortle, chortle), American Betrayal came in for a little flack in the past couple of months.
As I marshalled my forces — all 22,000 words’ worth — many filled the breach with eloquent, passionate, heartfelt defenses both of my book and of free and civil debate overarchingly. I didn’t want these missives from the front to disappear into Internet ether. This amazing record of intellectual battle in real time needed a repository. To that end, I have published both my rebuttal, which originally appeared in three parts at Breitbart News, and a selection of these essays written in my behalf in a new book, The Rebuttal: Defending American Betrayal from the Book-Burners. Authors include Andrew Bostom, Vladimir Bukovsky, Donald Douglas, Edward Cline, M. Stanton Evans, Ruth King, Clare M. Lopez, Ned May, R.S. McCain, Takuan Seiyo, Cindy Simpson, David Solway, John L. Work and more.
I am pleased to announce The Rebuttal it is now available as both a Kindle and a paperback edition at Amazon.
