Description

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 alteration as a society and an eventual end.

This is not just an analysis of demographic and political realities; it is also an eyewitness account of a continent in self-destruct mode. It includes accounts based on travels across the entire continent, from the places where migrants land to the places they end up, from the people who pretend they want them to the places which cannot accept them.

Murray takes a step back at each stage and looks at the bigger and deeper issues which lie behind a continent's possible demise, from an atmosphere of mass terror attacks to the steady erosion of our freedoms. The audiobook 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.

This sharp and incisive audiobook ends up with two visions for a new 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. But perhaps Spengler was right: 'civilizations, like humans, are born, briefly flourish, decay, and die'.

Grandiose

Perfect and constant performance for the narrator. Also that story needed to be told. Douglass Murray is very well spoken

Disturbing dystopian preview of tidal wave

Douglas Murray gives the background of the wave of immigration, legal and illegal, that has swept Europe. The introduction of new cultures to Europe, when it occurred at a time that European culture was secure, added new ideas, new costumes, and new cuisines to the continent. However, when those arriving have little interest in assimilating, have even less interest in the parliamentary and relatively free economies, and the history and culture of the host countries, we risk a hostile take-over rather than an enriching and diversification. This is the point of this book's grim conclusion.

The first few chapters outline the problem in philosophical form. Then we get the historical numbers, followed by illustration after excruciating illustration of actual real-time happenings.

Much like herd immunity, when most of a population is secure in its beliefs, newcomers add variety in a constructive way. But if the population no longer values its identity and the newcomers have a more robust but antithetical identity and ideology, the newer and more virulent strains will eventually prevail.

Hopefully Murray's jeremiad is exaggerated, but I fear otherwise.

I'm so glad I read this book!

I didn't understand what all the fuss and hostility was about in Europe these days and this book explained a lot. Douglas doesn't waste words he gets right to the point and then thoroughly explains the moving parts affecting each situation. There are plenty of points made in this insightful overview of pertinent recent history. It's funny that we are inundated with news and media but it seems to function as a big sponge soaking up all the happenings and squeezing them into a grey sludge. The Strange Death of Europe is like a lamp that allows you to see the whole shocking picture. With plenty of detail. Yikes. Good luck Europe. We will all miss you if you don't get your shit together.

A sobering tale

Extremely well written, Douglas Murray presents a cogent, clear and concise treatise on the sad state of affairs in Europe and the betrayal of the European people by their leaders. It is the most bizarre of times where so many are obsessed by race, racism and stamping out fascism. All the while allying themselves with some of the most backwards of ideologies and depraved people of those found in radical Islam. The book doesn't offer much hope, but perhaps offers the best medicine - truth. Something Europe's ruling class and media outlets seem to care little for.

Appalling European government crime cover up.

Where does The Strange Death of Europe rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is an excellent book. I can now understand what is going on in Europe and make sense of all the contradictory reports I hear on the news and watch on TV. I am appalled by the government cover up of crime against women in all European countries. I hope Prime Minister Justin Trudeau reads this book and understands what has happened in Europe with respect to immigration and Islam.

What does Robert Davies bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Robert Davies is able to communicate with the tone of his voice again and again facts which seem incredulous to the listener. I found myself shaking my head time and time again.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

I don't think Hollywood will be able to find a super hero in this book, and that’s all Hollywood can do anymore.

Must read

for anyone who wants to know what's happening to Europe and Europeans in relation to immigration since 1945 but especially in last few years has to read this book
lack of direction and clearly defined policies, delusional and lying politicians, tolerance of immigrants' sadism and primitivism, liberal dictatorship and censorship, masochism and nihilism of Western European populace, complete rejection of religion and much more is tearing the Europe apart and Europeans have only themselves to blame
this was actually an incredible but disturbing read

“The more a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those that speak it”

This book is a must have. As “one sided” as some may think, it is based on indisputable facts. Two world wars and many lives were lost to maintain and keep a democratic Europe. Now Europe faces another war, a war of ideology and religion. This book gives a very detailed account of that war and what if anything can be done to stem the tide of defeat.

Real story about open borders policy

Real,true story about consequences of uncontrolled flood of migrants, and mass media covering it. Manipulation of media coverage of the story,and politicians telling Europeans, that what they see,and experience,its not there.

The most important story ever to be ignored.

Should be carved into granite so that the future peoples that come back to enlightenment thousands of years after the coming dark ages have a tool to guide their way.

My head is spinning. My heart is heavy. But I am very grateful to the author and publishers of this book. It is extremely well written. It speaks the truth that so many are unwilling to acknowledge or address.

Europa schafft sich ab

Eine junge Frau wird von 3 Migranten/ Flüchtlingen vergewaltigt. Zunächst gibt die Frau an Ihre Peiniger seinen Deutsche gewesen, um dann später wahrheitsgemäß auszusagen. Die junge Frau schreibt einen offenen Brief an Ihre Vergewaltiger in dem sie(!) sich entschuldigt: Sie sei Opfer einer sexistischen Gesellschaft, die drei Männer seien das Opfer einer rassistischen Gesellschaft und zudem wunderbare Menschen - meistens.
Hier sollte es sich doch sicher um eine geschmacklose Falschmeldung handeln. Weit gefehlt. So geschehen im Januar 2016 in Deutschland.
Sarah Wagenknecht fordert von Ihrer Partei eine Flüchtlingspolitik mit menschlichem Augenmaß, fordert von Ihrer Partei die Ängste in der Bevölkerung ernst zu nehmen und muss sich prompt der üblichen Rassismusvorwürfe erwehren.
Kritiker des Islam benötigen Polizeischutz, islamistische Hassprediger können ihre menschenverachtenden Agitationen lancieren.
Großbritannien schien mir stets eine uneinnehmbare Festung des gesunden Menschenverstandes zu sein. Doch auch hier wirkt das Gift der political correctness und richtet Verheerungen an. Ist denn niemand in den politischen Eliten bereit Europas kulturelle Identität zu verteidigen. Soll es das gewesen sein? Eine schwedische Spitzenpolitikerin wird nach der Bewahrungswürdigkeit ihrer Kultur gefragt, um dann zu antworten: Welche Kultur?
Warum gilt als chauvinistisch was anderen Nationen und Kulturen geradezu verbissen zugebilligt wird: Kulturelle Identität pflegen und verteidigen.
All die Terrorakte sollen gar nichts mit dem Islam zu tun haben?
Stimmt es denn nicht das auf Salman Rushdie noch immer ein Kopfgeld ausgesetzt ist?
The Strange Death of Europe ist ein Buch zur politischen Stunde. Eine entschieden humanitär gesinnte,brillante, geistreiche, kämpferische Analyse und eine in einem weiten geschichtlichen Horizont situierte Bestandsaufnahme.
Keine Spur von Rassismus. Keine Spur von Chauvinismus. Keine Spur von Ethnozentrismus oder Ismalophobie.Im Gegenteil: Wer die Dinge beim falschen Namen nennt trägt zum Unglück der Welt bei(Camus), insofern der Versuch das Maß an Unglück zu mindern.
Schwere Kost die mich an "Mal eben kurz die Welt retten" von Markus Vahlefeld denken lässt. Argumente statt Klischees. Argumente statt political correctness.
Souveräner Vortrag.

Sad but true story, exceptionally good written

This is a must read for all people who a worried about what is happening to our continent (me comimng from Germany, where a woman who has no children decided the death of its nation is still chancelor...)

This is so good resurged (especially the german parts of this book) that praise this autor for this book, hope many many people read this...
Great can't wait for more to come from him.

By the way. The Politician in Germany who said to us citicens that if we did not like mass-imigration into our country, we are free to leave, Walter Lübbke, was shot dead in his house a couple of months ago. Wind is changing slowly but it is....

Pflichtlektüre!

Irgendwie sind einem alle Fakten bekannt, aber der Autor erklärt die fast aussichtslose Situation ganz ohne Polemik und ohne Stimmungmache und sortiert die Fakten so, dass sich ein Bild ergibt. Er beleuchtet alle Argumente - pro und contra - und gibt einen geschichtlichen Einblick, der verdeutlicht, warum die Politik prakisch ausnahmlos so tut, als wäre alles unter Kontrolle.

Auch der Dprecher ist klasse und extrem gut verständlich.

Sadly convincing

Douglas Murray’s book is sadly convincing. It is almost as if he does not have any facts or arguments that I haven’t heard before some where, some time. Yet, when he brings it all together, most of my own thinking about immigration seems as having been heavily stricken by denial, cognitive dissonance reduction, intellectual laziness and biased. This is an important, clear minded and enlightened exposé of The Strange Death of Europe.

Good but one-sided

I find it very important to write about this topic and I guess I can agree on most of what the author writes but it makes him a little less credibility only to consider the arguments of one side and completely dismisses all others

if you know good books for the other side please leave a message

Shows us how Europe came to its current state. Portrays the “zeitgeist” where anyone speaking out against immigration, as it is executed in Europe, as racist, nazi etc...Very interesting and sobering/worrying subject

We all can see it. This is the last wake-up call.

Very well written, self-reflecting chronic of our demise. Though being reminded of our imbecile politicians can cause anger and depression to reoccur.

Fact based, thoughtful and with much empathy

...towards refugees. The author visited refugee camps, talked to politicians and all manner of people all over Europe. The resulting book is both immediately relevant and takes a long term perspective about the future of Europe.
