In American Betrayal, Diana West digs into our modern political landscape, dominated by President Barack Obama, to ask how did America turn its back on its basic beliefs and ignore the Socialist movement underway long before the 2012 election. West's surprising answer takes the form of an investigative history that explores the massive, Moscow - directed penetration of U.S. society. She looks at those who concealed it - Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower - those who did the penetrating - Hiss, Currie, Silvermaster, Hopkins, Adler, and hundreds more; and the forgotten heroes who exposed it -Lyons, Bullitt, Dies, Chambers, Bentley, Jordan, Epstein, and even McCarthy. West finds that even before WWII, the U.S. made a deal-with-the-devil, accepting Big Lie after Big Lie from the Soviet Union, concealing them in order to take the stage as the post-war superpower, and losing our values in the process. The sorry story continues today with Americans acquiescing to pro-Islamic radicalism while leading Republicans are fearful of speaking out against liberal excesses. In American Betrayal, Diana West shakes the historical record and dislodges a shocking number of icons to discover how a nation of adolescents became so cowardly that we cannot defend our most cherished values.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Diana West masterfully reminds us of what history is for: to suggest action for the present. She paints for us the broad picture of our own long record of failing to recognize bullies and villains. She shows how American denial today reflects a pattern that held strongly in the period of the Soviet Union. She is the Michelangelo of Denial." --Amity Shlaes, author of Coolidge and the NYT bestseller The Forgotten Man: A New History of the Great Depression

"I have read it, and agree wholeheartedly." - Angelo Codevilla, Professor Emeritus of International Relations at Boston Unversity, and fellow of the Claremont Institute.

"This explosive book is a long-needed answer to court histories that continue to obscure key facts about our backstage war with Moscow. Must-reading for serious students of security issues and Cold War deceptions, both foreign and domestic." --M. Stanton Evans, author of Blacklisted by History

"A brilliantly researched and argued book" - Edward Jay Epstein, author of The Annals of Unsolved Crime

"If you haven't read Diana West's "American Betrayal" yet, you're missing out on a terrific, real-life thriller." --Brad Thor, author of the New York Times bestsellers Black List, Full Black, and The Last Patriot.

"What Diana West has done is to dynamite her way through several miles of bedrock. On the other side of the tunnel there is a vista of a new past. Of course folks are baffled. Few people have the capacity to take this in. Her book is among the most well documented I have ever read. It is written in an unusual style viewed from the perspective of the historian--but it probably couldn't have been done any other way." --Lars Hedegaard, historian, editor, Dispatch International

"Her arguments shred our preconceived notions of twentieth century history." --Jeff Minick, Smoky Mountain (NC) News

"American Betrayal is a monumental achievement. Brilliant and important." --Monica Crowley

"Diana West's new book rewrites WWII and Cold War history not by disclosing secrets, but by illuminating facts that have been hidden in plain sight for decades. Furthermore, she integrates intelligence and political history in ways never done before." --Jeffrey Norwitz, former professor of counterterrorism, Naval War College

"Enlightening. I give American Betrayal five stars only because it is not possible to give it six." --John Dietrich, formerly of the Defense Intelligence Agency and author of The Morgenthau Plan: Soviet Influence on American Postwar Policy.

"American Betrayal is not simply a good book about history. It is one of those books which makes history." --Vladimir Bukovsky and Pavel Stroilov, Breitbart News

"Every once in a while, something happens that turns a whole structure of preconceived ideas upside down, shattering tales and narratives long taken for granted, destroying prejudice, clearing space for new understanding to grow. Diana West's latest book, American Betrayal, is such an event." --Henrik Raeder Clausen, Europe News
