Excellent, well-researched chronicle written in the indefatigable style that is Bill O'Reilly. ( )
  jayduhon | Apr 12, 2011 |
The very first thing I noticed when I started reading the book was the fact that there were absolutely no citations, references, or footnotes! I immediately thought of Dr. Barfoot, one of my grad school professors. If I turned in a paper that included facts, figures, times and places, and did not cite or reference them, he would have make a notation on the paper, in red ink, that said "Does not meet syllabus requirements" and failed me. This, then, is the substance of O'Reilly's book. It is almost like a transcription of one of his programs: All shouting, yelling, and finger-pointing without any factual material to back up his statements. It is a polemic without any knowledge of the subject. It makes you wonder how he made it through his MPA program!

Enjoyed it! You may not agree with Bill O'Reilly but his point of view provides a valuable counterweight to other more dominant view points in todays media. I found his narrative honest, genuine and very positive. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0767920929, Hardcover)

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.
