America's Secular Challenge: The Rise of a New National Religion

Tuesday July 2008


Herbert I. London President, Hudson Institute

In this timeley and wide-ranging book, Herbert I. London argues that the rise of secularism in the United States is a poor response to the challenge presented by radical Islam. He contends that in the war of ideas, our belief in relativism has handicapped our ability to thwart the inroads of fanaticism. America’s Secular Challenge is a sobering wake-up call and a battle plan for the political and existential trials of the 21st century.

London is a noted social critic, whose work has appeared in nearly every major newspaper and journal, including the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, and the Washington Post. He is a contributing editor for the St. Croix Review and the American Arts Quarterly, and is the author and editor of 22 books.
