Andrew C. McCarthy Publishes 'Spring Fever: The Illusion of Islamic Democracy'

The antidote to the delirious Arab Spring narrative.

The David Horowitz Freedom Center is pleased to announce the publication of Spring Fever: The Illusion of Islamic Democracy, by bestselling author and commentator, Andrew C. McCarthy, Executive Director of the Philadelphia Freedom Center, our East Coast branch.

McCarthy describes Spring Fever as “an alternative way to understand what is happening in the Middle East, an antidote to the delirious ‘Arab Spring’ narrative.” It shows that Islam is a culture and civilization distinct from and hostile to the West, and that far from being a fringe ideology, radical Islamic supremacism is the dominant interpretation of Islam in the Middle East and the driving force behind the anti-democratic events that have occurred there in the last two years, particularly the recent attacks on U.S. embassies and the murder of U.S. personnel.

Andrew McCarthy is recognized as one of the nation’s preeminent authorities on national security, law-enforcement, and the domestic threat posed by radical Islam.  He is a former attorney for the Justice Department’s Southern District of New York, best known for leading the successful prosecution against Omar Abdel Rahman, the “Blind Sheikh,” who masterminded the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.

Andrew’s first New York Times bestseller was Willful Blindness: A Memoir of the Jihad (Encounter Books, 2008), a critically acclaimed account of the Blind Sheikh investigation.   His   next book, The Grand Jihad: How Islam and the Left Sabotage America (Encounter Books, 2010) centered on the Muslim Brotherhood’s  “civilization jihad” against the West, its entrenched and expanding network of groups and individuals of influence; and its collusion with the hard Left in an ongoing assault against America’s liberty culture.

Spring Fever is being published as an original e-book to capture the urgency of breaking news in the Middle East and to capture too the domination, happening on the ground and in real time, of the  “Arab Spring” movement by the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist groups.

As Director of the Philadelphia Freedom Center, McCarthy administers its popular speaker series, its campus programs including this year’s Islamic Apartheid Week, and its publications. He  also writes columns and blogs for
