Geert Wilders' new book, Marked For Death, is a terrific read in its own right, but it also comes with a foreword by Mark setting the scene for Mr Wilders' sobering account of Islam's war against him and the wider west. And, if you order it from the SteynOnline bookstore, Mark will be happy to sign it for you. Front Page Mag reviews the book here:
The foreword to this title was written by the eloquent Canadian-born political commentator and cultural critic Mark Steyn, who has a special talent for writing about serious topics in a humorous way. He has published several books and written essays for publications ranging from the Jerusalem Post and the Chicago Sun-Times to the National Review, The Australian and Canada's National Post.
Steyn is honest enough to admit that when he was first asked to contribute to Wilders' new book, his initial reaction was to say no. The main reason for this is the potentially high cost of being associated with a man who lives with constant death threats.
Yet, after taking a stroll in the woods, Mark Steyn felt ashamed at the ease with which he was caving in to the enemies of freedom, and decided to accept the offer after all.

The introduction is by Mark Steyn, and as one expects from him, is honest, insightful, amusing in a way that tries to hide the raw horror of the subject at hand, and entertaining.
Diana West notes the Organization of Islamic Cooperation's response to the book here. Meanwhile, Geert himself has been making the promotional rounds. You can see him talking with Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck and Erick Stakelbeck, as well as with The Daily Caller's Jamie Weinstein, who calls him "the most famous bleached blonde since Marilyn Monroe".
