] There is a book by conservative politician Pat Buchanan,
] titled almost identically: "The death of the west"
Despite the similarity of the titles, Buchanan's book has little or nothing to do with the topic of Friedman's article. This much is obvious just from reading the subtitle of the book: "How Dying Populations and Immigrant Invasions Imperil Our Country and Civilization."
Here's what Publisher's Weekly said about the book:
Buchanan argues that "while the prognosis is not good," America must reevaluate itself and reclaim its white, Christian origins; despite the current "coarseness of her manners, the decadence of her culture, or the sickness in her soul," the nation is worth saving. Buchanan's passionately expressed ideology will be too extreme for most readers, and its proud bigotry is unlikely to play well even among most conservatives.
In my view, Tom Friedman's perspective is squarely in the Information Age. In contrast, Pat Buchanan's viewpoint seems lost in the pre-Industrial Age.
How many times has Pat Buchanan won the Pulitzer Prize?
