“It is indeed a serious book with perhaps the rarest of things: the potential to change your mind on any number of subjects. That it is written with great good humor and some laugh out loud moments should not disguise that it is very serious and very important…I marvel at its breadth and depth…”
Hugh Hewitt, nationally-syndicated radio talk show host

[Suicide of the West] is damn good.”
Dana Perino, Fox News host

“…a fantastic book…Highly recommended.”
Brad ThorNew York Times bestselling author


In his newest book, Suicide of the WestJonah Goldberg makes the timely case that America – and other democracies – must actively defend liberty against forces pulling us back to the tribal and nationalistic ideologies of the past. Goldberg exposes the West’s suicidal tendencies on the left but also on the right – at a moment when many conservatives are surrendering to tribalism and nationalism. 
The West is dying from ingratitude. Democracy and liberty were accidents of history. If capitalism were natural, it would have popped up long before the 1700s, when humanity stumbled into a miraculous explosion in human prosperity. This miracle was not delivered by God or created by machines. It came from new ideas and values. But what is created by ideas and values can be destroyed them.​ ​In this age of resentment, we reject the gift of liberty and instead listen to the lesser angels of our nature. We find comfort in authoritarianism, tribalism, identity politics, nationalism and aristocracy, all of which brutalized humanity for millennia.
Suicide of the West asserts that for the West to survive, a renewed commitment to classically liberal principles is required. Suicide is painless; liberty takes work.
