Illiberal education : the politics of race and sex on campus by Dinesh D'Souza( Book )

24 editions published between 1991 and 1993 in English and French and held by 2,539 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

American universities are once again the scene of angry controversy. This time it is the politics of race and sex that has sparked a wave of bitter confrontations. Some of these disputes have made national headlines; many more go unreported. They may appear to be unrelated cases of excessive zeal. But as the author argues in this firsthand report from today's deeply troubled American campus, the conflicts are the fruit of a coherent ideology that seeks to thrust the university into the vanguard of social reform and to establish a model "multicultural community."
The end of racism : principles for a multiracial society by Dinesh D'Souza( Book )

23 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 2,133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The End of Racism goes beyond familiar polemics to raise fundamental questions that no one else has asked: Is racial prejudice innate, or is it culturally acquired? Is it peculiar to the West, or is it found in all societies? What is the legacy of slavery, and what does America owe blacks as compensation for it? Did the civil rights movement succeed or fail in its attempt to overcome the legacy of segregation and racism? Is there such a thing as rational discrimination? Can persons of color be racist? Is racism really the most serious problem facing black Americans today, or is it a declining phenomenon? If racism had a beginning, shouldn't it be possible to envision its end? In a scrupulous and balanced study, D'Souza shows that racism is a distinctively Western phenomenon, arising at about the time of the first European encounters with non-Western peoples, and he chronicles the political, cultural, and intellectual history of racism as well as the twentieth-century liberal crusade against it. D'Souza proactively traces the limitations of the civil rights movement to its flawed assumptions about the nature of racism. He argues that the American obsession with race is fueled by a civil rights establishment that has a vested interest in perpetuating black dependency, and he concludes that the generation that marched with Martin Luther King, Jr. may be too committed to the paradigm of racial struggle to see the possibility of progress. Perhaps, D'Souza suggests, like the Hebrews who were forced to wander in the desert for 40 years, that generation may have to pass away before their descendants can enter the promised land of freedom and equality. In the meantime, however, many race activists are preaching despair and poisoning the minds of a younger generation which in fact displays far less racial consciousness and bigotry than any other in American history. The End of Racism summons profound historical, moral, and practical arguments against the civil rights orthodoxy which holds that "race matters" and that therefore we have no choice but to institutionalize race as the basis for identity and public policy
What's so great about America by Dinesh D'Souza( Book )

20 editions published between 2001 and 2015 in English and French and held by 1,711 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

America is under attack as never before. Not only from foreign terrorists, but also from within. Islamic terrorists declare America the "Great Satan." Many Europeans complain about America spreading its cultural wasteland. And perhaps worst of all, here in our own country, those on the political Left still blame America for every ill in the world. Left-wing multiculturalism -- dominant in our own schools and universities -- teaches students that Western and American culture is no better than, and probably worse than, Third World cultures. Does this imply the death of the West? Quite the opposite, says the author. In his new book he takes on all of America's critics and proves them wrong. The author claims that the flood of immigrants coming to America proves that our values, our system, our freedoms, and our culture are irresistible and superior. The problem, he asserts, is our own inability or refusal to celebrate what makes America great. He takes the alleged "sins of the West" and debunks the myths propagated by the Left: 1. Slavery? The West is unique not in having slavery but in abolishing it. 2. Colonialism? The author, an immigrant from India, gives two cheers for British colonialism, pointing out that the sons and daughters of colonists are the beneficiaries of Western law, culture, education, opportunity, and prosperity. 3. Decadence? Who is truly virtuous, he asks, a society that enforces Talibanic edicts or the West, where virtue is a free-will choice? Where else in the world has the value and potential of the individual been more fully realized than in America? In the aftermath of the September 11 attacks on our country, there is a clear understanding of the moral basis of Western civilization is needed now more than ever. This book offers a powerful defense for America and exposes the truth about who our enemies really are

The enemy at home : the cultural left and its responsibility for 9/11 by Dinesh D'Souza( Book )

12 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 1,222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The culture wars at home and the global war on terror are usually viewed as separate problems. Author D'Souza makes the claim that terrorist acts around the world can be directly traced to the ideas and attitudes perpetrated by America's cultural left. D'Souza shows that American liberals are responsible for fostering a culture that angers and repulses not just Muslims but also traditional and religious societies around the world. He argues that it is not our exercise of freedom that enrages our enemies, but our abuse of that freedom--from the sexual liberty of women to the support of gay marriage, birth control, and no-fault divorce, to the aggressive exportation of our vulgar, licentious popular culture. It is only by curtailing the left's attacks on religion, family, and traditional values that we can persuade moderate Muslims and others around the world to cooperate with us and shun the extremists in their own countries.--From publisher description

Hillary's America : the secret history of the Democratic Party by Dinesh D'Souza( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 942 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dinesh D'Souza has a warning: We are on the brink of losing our country forever. After eight years of Obama, four years -- or possibly eight years -- of Hillary Clinton as president of the United States would so utterly transform America as to make it unrecognizable. No more will America be a land of opportunity. Instead, it will be a land of rapacious crony capitalism, run solely for the benefit of friends of the Obamas and the Clintons and the Democratic Party. It will, in fact, be the fulfillment of a dream the Democratic Party has had from the beginning... a dream of stealing America for the politically favored few. D'Souza presents the sordid truth about Hillary and the secret history of the Democratic Party, including how Democrats transitioned from pro-slavery to pro-enslavement; the long-standing Democratic political war against women; how Hillary Clinton's political mentor was, literally, a cold-blooded gangster; how the Clintons and other Democrats see foreign policy not in terms of national interest, but in terms of personal profit; how Democratically controlled cities have turned into hotbeds of crime and corruption; and much, much more
2016 -- Obama's America( Visual )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 925 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on the work of Dinesh D'Souza, 2016: Obama's America is the highest-grossing conservatively-slanted documentary of all time. It lays out what D'Souza believes Obama would do in a second term as President of the United States. He bases his conclusions on Obama's father's anti-colonialism and on Obama's purported psychological desire to fulfill his father's dream of diminishing the power of Western imperial states. The film is arresting in its presentation and sobering in its conclusions
