Home Invasion : Protecting Your Family in a Culture that's Gone Stark Raving Mad is a rather unusual book to be reviewed here in the Design Bookshelf, but it came to our attention through the User Group Network's Safe Netting department -- with an important message for all parents. While many will see this as an arch-conservative view of the world, the seriousness of the issues should not -- cannot -- be ignored. You only have to look at one day's spam to see Rebecca Hagelin has good reason to be afraid. And you should be too.

"...a must-read handbook for parents..."
Fox News' Sean Hannity says:
"Rebecca's book is a priceless blueprint for parents on how to counter the negative cultural influences that are inundating our children. Read Home Invasion and you'll be prepared to go to battle in the culture war -- and win."
This bold new book takes a look at how today's depraved culture has invaded the last safe place -- the American home. It's an inspiring challenge and winning strategy on how to reclaim the innocence of our children.
Middle class moms and dads have long sought safety for their children in the nurturing haven of the cul-de-sac. Like a safe harbor at the edge of an angry sea, the suburban neighborhood is an environment of protection from the world and all its dangers. Or is it? In Home Invasion, Rebecca Hagelin proves that in today's all-consuming culture of corruption there is nowhere left to hide -- American homes have already been invaded by this insidious enemy that seeks to twist our minds and poison our hearts through the unmonitored Internet, television, magazines, and music that our families ingest on a daily basis.
Speaking as a nationally known social commentator and as a mother of three, Hagelin shows through specific examples and alarming statistics how the enemy has infected the family van, our neighborhood schools and textbooks, the stores in which we shop, and even the churches in which we worship. With warm words of encouragement and practical suggestions, she coaches parents on how to arm themselves with information, strategically plan the movements of their family members, secure allies in the battle, and most of all, muster the guts and the resolve to lead their families to victory against the great beast.
Rebecca Hagelin has championed the pro-family message in both Washington and around the nation for some twenty years. She is a vice president of The Heritage Foundation (Heritage.org) whose vision is to "Create an America where freedom, opportunity, prosperity and civil society flourish." Her weekly column, "Heart Beat", appears on WorldNetDaily.com and Townhall.com and is characterized by its exploration of social and cultural issues through the lens of a mother. Hagelin is a radio commentator for Salem Communications and a frequent guest co-host of Point of View. A poised and articulate spokesperson, Hagelin is the author of numerous articles published nationally and is a veteran of hundreds of radio, television, newspaper, and magazine interviews, including numerous appearances on CNN, Fox News, and national network news programs.
