Author's Three Books Speak Truths on Critical Themes in Today's World
Eye-opening thoughts on multiculturalism, Islam and America
SARASOTA, Fla., Jan. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Author Alfred S. Golding shares truths and thoughts on multiculturalism, America, the Middle East, Islam and Islamism in his three published books, Multiculturalism, America and the Middle East: An Expose, An Indictment; It's The Culture...! Why We Don't Understand the Middle East and Its Terror; and Islam and Islamism: A Primer for Non-Muslims - Why A Rabid, Radical Islam Poses A Threat for America, Western Democracy and Judeo-Christian Values. He invites readers to open their eyes and minds to the impact of Islam and Islamism upon Western society today.
Multiculturalism, America and the Middle East makes Americans aware of the often malign character and impact of this still fashionable doctrine across the liberal spectrum, doing so with attention to its anthropological origins and moral contradictions, for multiculturalism champions a supra-nationalism and cultural relativism that undercuts our political ideals and, indeed, very view of the past.
The shocking events of 9/11 have finally elicited public inquiry as to why such acts of terrorism happen and the Mideast mindset that sets them into motion. It's The Culture...! provides answers to these now highly important questions for America's security, for terror is a phenomenon found in the Middle East since time immemorial, of which our leaders should have been aware. Using an anthropological approach, the author suggests that an endemic tribalism in the region is a major cause for the degradation of its people, and the despotism and corruption of its governments.
America is now being challenged by a radical Islamism, itself sprung from Islam's soil. Sadly, the American public knows little about that faith. Golding's Islam and Islamism, A Primer for Non-Muslims, therefore, has significance in being able to disclose Islam's basic tenets, practices and history as well as those of Islamism, its political arm, in a simple and readily understandable way for the average reader.
