Threshold Editions, a division of Simon & Schuster, announced today that Mark R. Levin’s #1 blockbuster bestseller, AMERICAN MARXISM, has sold one million copies across all formats — print books, ebooks, and e-audiobooks–in only 10 weeks on sale. The October 3, 2021 New York Times bestseller list also marks the book’s 10th straight week at #1. In addition, AMERICAN MARXISM debuted at #1 on Publishers Weekly, The Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestseller lists where it still remains in the top 10.
Jennifer Long, Deputy Publisher for Threshold said, “We are thrilled about the astounding success of AMERICAN MARXISM and its enormous appeal to the general public. We applaud Mark Levin for his compelling scholarship and work. Bookscan reports AMERICAN MARXISM is currently the top-selling nonfiction book of 2021, and we anticipate it staying high on bestseller lists through the rest of the year.”
All 9 of Mark Levin’s books have been New York Times bestsellers. AMERICAN MARXISM is Levin’s 7th #1 in a row and is in its 13th printing with well over 1,000,000 copies in print.
In American Marxism, Levin seeks to rally the American people to defend their liberty, traditions, families, and the Constitution from a counterrevolution to the American Revolution that seeks to destroy the existing civil society. Levin explains how the core elements of Marxist ideology have been uniquely tailored to and applied to American society and are now pervasive throughout the culture, forming a variety of sub-movements surrounding such issues as “climate change,” “genderism,” “critical race theory,” etc. These American Marxist movements have become powerful forces in our schools, the media, and corporations, as well as Hollywood, the Democratic Party, and the Biden presidency. Levin describes how they often cloak themselves in deceptive labels like “progressivism,” “democratic socialism,” “social activism,” and more, to disguise their true intentions. Levin also exposes many of the leading institutions, intellectuals, scholars, and activists behind this counterrevolution, and provides us with some answers and ideas on ways to push back.
Mark R. Levin, nationally syndicated talk radio host, host of LevinTV, chairman of Landmark Legal Foundation, and the host of the Fox News show Life, Liberty, & Levin, is the author of seven consecutive #1 New York Times bestsellers: Liberty and Tyranny, Ameritopia, The Liberty Amendments, Plunder and Deceit, Rediscovering Americanism, Unfreedom of the Press, and American Marxism.

He holds a BA from Temple University and a JD from Temple University Law School.
