|The Strange Death of Europe is a highly personal account of a continent and culture caught in the act of suicide. Declining birth-rates, mass immigration and cultivated self-distrust and self-hatred have come together to make Europeans unable to argue for themselves and incapable of resisting their own comprehensive change as a society. This book is not only an analysis of demographic and political realities, but also an eyewitness account of a continent in self-destruct mode. It includes reporting from across the entire continent, from the places where migrants land to the places they end up, from the people who appear to welcome them in to the places which cannot accept them.Told from this first-hand perspective, and backed with impressive research and evidence, the book addresses the disappointing failure of multiculturalism, Angela Merkel's U-turn on migration, the lack of repatriation and the Western fixation on guilt. Murray travels to Berlin, Paris, Scandinavia, Lampedusa and Greece to uncover the malaise at the very heart of the European culture, and to hear the stories of those who have arrived in Europe from far away. In each chapter he also takes a step back to look at the bigger issues which lie behind a continent's death-wish, answering the question of why anyone, let alone an entire civilisation, would do this to themselves? He ends with two visions of Europe - one hopeful, one pessimistic - which paint a picture of Europe in crisis and offer a choice as to what, if anything, we can do next.|

|Reviews||"Lively . . . Murray's book is informed by actual reporting across the Continent, and a quality of writing that manages to be spritely and elegiac at the same time. Murray's is also a truly liberal intellect, in that he is free from the power that taboo exerts over the European problem, but he doesn't betray the slightest hint of atavism or meanspiritedness." - Michael Brendan Dougherty, The National Review "This is a brilliant, important and profoundly depressing book. That it is written with Douglas Murray's usual literary elegance and waspish humor does not make it any less depressing. That Murray will be vilified for it by the liberals who have created the appalling mess he describes does not make it any less brilliant and important ( . . . ) Read it." - Rod Liddle, Sunday Times "His overall thesis, that a guilt-driven and exhausted Europe is playing fast and loose with its precious modern values by embracing migration on such a scale, is hard to refute." - Juliet Samuel, Telegraph "A cogent summary of how, over three decades or more, elites across western Europe turned a blind eye to the failures of integration and the rise of Islamism . . . Persuasive." - The Times "This is a vitally important book, the contents of which should be known to everyone who can influence the course of events, at this critical time in the history of Europe." - Sir Roger Scruton "Douglas Murray writes so well that when he is wrong he is dangerous" - Matthew Parris, Spectator "Douglas Murray glitters in the gloom. His pessimism about multiculturalism is so well constructed and written it is almost uplifting. Liberals will want to rebut him. I should warn them that they will need to argue harder than they have ever argued before." - Nick Cohen "Douglas Murray's introduction to this already destructive subject of Islamist hegemony is a distinguished attempt to clarify the origins of a storm. I found myself continually wishing that he wasn't making himself quite so clear." - Clive James "Whether one agrees with him or not Murray has made a valuable contribution to the global battle of ideas." - Amir Taheri, Asharq al-Awsat "A compelling, insightful and persuasively argued narrative . . . a deeply humane book that touches on individual tragedy . . . It may even prove to be the start of a conversation, and for such a dangerously politicized and neglected subject, that would be most welcome. The combination of fascinating subject matter and superb writing make The Strange Death of Europe a title that stays in the mind throughout the reading process and beyond." - Entertainment Focus "A powerful new book." - John O'Sullivan, The National Review, "This is a vitally important book, the contents of which should be known to everyone who can influence the course of events, at this critical time in the history of Europe." - Sir Roger Scruton "Douglas Murray writes so well that when he is wrong he is dangerous" - Matthew Parris, Spectator "Whether one agrees with him or not Murray has made a valuable contribution to the global battle of ideas" - Amir Taheri, Asharq al-Awsat "Masterly" - Christopher Hitchens on BOSIE: A BIOGRAPHY OF LORD ALFRED DOUGLAS|

Truly amazing and informative!
I highly recommend this unique book. I am an American and knew nothing about how or why Europe got into its current disastrous immigration mess. (It was written by an Englishman.) I learned so so much on just about every page. Wow, and wow again.
