"The controversial pundit dishes out and takes punishment in this anthology of rancorous essays by him and the leftist comrades he abandoned to embrace the invasion of Iraq. . . .There's red meat aplenty for pro- and anti-Hitchens readers."--Publishers Weekly
"Most of Hitchenss reasons for keeping the hawkish faith can be found in this collection."--New York Review of Books
"Cottee and Cushman have produced not only a priceless collection of Christopher Hitchenss key writings over the past few years; they have also documented wonderfully the most essential characteristics of the post-9/11 Anglo-American left. Christopher Hitchens and His Critics is must reading for anybody interested in the big topics befalling our lives."--Andrei S. Markovits, University of Michigan
"Hitchenss style is so dazzling it is easy to forget that it is rooted in a solid belief in secularism, feminism, and reason. These are the core principles of the Left and we have no choice but to defend them. As they are assaulted by psychopathic Islamists abroad and betrayed by empty headed phonies at home, it is good to know that Hitchens is on our side."--Nick Cohen, columnist "The Observer "
"The 52 essays, articles, and exchanges are among the best in post-9/11 literature, and shimmer with pugilistic intelligence and wit."--Capitol File Magazine
