Patrick Grimm Reviews Tom Sunic’s New Book Homo Americanus: Child of the Postmodern Age

Homo Americanus: Tom Sunic’s Tour De Force of A Treatise

By Patrick Grimm

One of the best authors I have discovered recently would have to be Dr. Tomislav Sunic. Who is Tom Sunic and why do I praise his writing? Allow me to quote from his book jacket as an introduction to this heavyweight in the intellectual sparring match for our heritage and freedom:

“Tomislav (Tom) Sunic is a former U.S. professor, author, translator and a former Croatian diplomat. Mr. Sunic obtained his doctorate in political science at the University of California. In this book he attempts to explain how the postmodern liberal elites justify their system and their intellectual repression against heretics. Mr. Sunic has already published books, scholarly and newspaper articles in French, German, English and Croatian on subjects of cultural pessimism and the use and misuse of modern language by proponents of communist and liberal ideology.”

Sunic’s book is entitled Homo Americanus: Child of the Postmodern Age. It has a provocative forward written by eminent evolutionary psychologist Kevin MacDonald that sets the stage for the deconstruction of “Americanism” that is to shortly come. I have just begun delving into this very essential volume on the follies of both postmodernist thought, which in many aspects is quintessentially American, and the myths that give Americanism its appealing varnish-like gloss, yet hide the bankruptcy of its egalitarian suppositions and aid in the exportation of its worst excesses.

Dr. Sunic also explains how America’s increasing Judaization and its embrace and tolerance of Jewish hegemony in the United States during the 20th and 21st centuries is a natural result of its own Puritan and Puritanical roots. Self-congratulatory Self-Chosenness and hyper-moralizing reminiscent of those who conducted the Salem Witch Trials, have only aided our speedy cooptation of “political correctness” as a new moral crusade. The language has not changed, though perhaps some of the ideology has. Is it any wonder we are all ‘Jewish’ now?

With chapters such as “Americanism and Anti-Americanism”, “The Biblical Origins of American Fundamentalism” and “In Yahweh We Trust: A Divine Foreign Policy”, Sunic takes the interdisciplinary approach to his topic, and from what I have digested so far, the reader is far better off for it. This subject requires a wide swath of disciplines, rather than a narrow, myopic focus that is minimalist and restrictive.

I will do an even more extensive discussion of this book and its ideas later, but I did want my own readers to be informed of some of the excellent volumes I have happened upon recently. This book has left an indelible mark upon both my mind and my writing. If you wish to purchase Homo Americanus, and I highly recommend that you do, you can find it at at this particular link:

In closing, I must say that I rarely plug books or other products on this site, but every once in a while an intellectual work comes along that deserves a wider audience. Dr. Tom Sunic’s riveting tour de force of a treatise is that deserving work.
