    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'.

    Staggering, but compelling account

    This book rips the scales from our eyes. Europe is in its death throes but our leaders just bury their heads in the sand.

    “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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Sheer venom.

    - A few parts are good. The first couple of chapters, and the chapter Tiredness and The Feeling That the Story Has Run out, those had some interesting parts i.e. when the author speaks about culture, history and identity. The parts about the role of religion and the effect of Christianity's slow death in Europe are good.

    - But when he tries to diagnose threats to culture, they are invariably Islamophobic, biased and exaggerated. He combs the news looking for any instances of Muslim migrants doing anything bad, and he exaggerates those cases as if they are the norm rather than the exception.

    - Author unashamedly endorsed Slovakian prime minister's statement, "Islam has no place in Slovakia".

    - In one of the low points of the book, he quotes insane Zionist and Islamophobe Daniel Pipes.

    - He only mentions Judaism positively, he never mentions Israeli war crimes or pre-Israel Zionist terrorism committed by Haganah and other Jewish groups.

    - He's pinning his hopes on Muslims abandoning the Quran to "defang and wound" Islam.

    - The author is homosexual, so he tries to find stories of homosexuals being attacked by Muslims, but when he mourns Christianity's death in Europe, never mentions the violence inflicted on homosexuals by the church.

    - He mentions several polls where Europeans are purportedly anti-Islamic, and he supports those polls. Then when one of those polls was shown to have anti-Jewish and anti-Buddhist answers, he was surprised. What he's saying: the right thing is to hate Muslims, but it's WEIRD that anyone would hate any other group!

    Bottomline: could've been great, but Douglas Murray hates Islam and Muslims and wants you to hate them too. Like every other racist or antisemite or xenophobe, he too thinks his hatred and bigotry are based on facts and reason.

    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.

    Tried to give it a fair shot.

    Couldn't finish it. Begins with an interesting comparison of conflicting cultural differences, then awkwardly devolves into concerns over white racial "purity".

    White genocide tropes

    How many digress of separation do you want your intellectual life to have from the Turner Diaries? The problem with this book is that if you haven’t taken the time to get educated on the language white of supremacist movements you’re likely to not see what’s being said to you here. It’s necessary to read books within the context of the larger society in which the author exists. Read anything by Kathleen Belew she’s the foremost expert on the subject first. Not only does this book use coded language it also has a lot of things that are factual incorrect.

    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.

    Fear-mongering

    This book may perhaps be well-intentioned, but it is misinformed and misleading. The rhetoric is designed to sow fear, rather than to encourage productive problem solving.

    This book is a response to the challenges of living in an ethnically diverse, pluralistic society. These challenges are real, and clashes between different cultures and ideologies doubtlessly happen. The reluctance of many left-leaning politicians to discuss these issues can be a real problem.

    However, having pointed out a real problem, the book takes its rhetoric in a wholly unproductive direction. Instead of addressing the roots of the problem (globalization, drastic economic inequality between countries, lack of effective international cooperation, colonial legacies, etc.), or suggesting practical solutions, the author puts a lot of effort into describing various ways in which immigrants are or could become a threat to the established peoples of Europe. He paints a lurid picture of the hordes of migrants pouring into Europe, bringing with them their barbaric customs, and shamelessly taking advantage of the Europeans' generosity. The solution to all Europe's problems, apparently, is to keep these barbarians out. With such a premise, the only thing that this book can hope to accomplish is to fan xenophobic fears.

    Many rhetorical fallacies are committed here: presenting statistics out of context; treating exceptional individuals (e.g., terrorists) as if they were representative of a group (e.g., Muslims); treating large and diverse groups (all immigrants, all Muslims, all Europeans) as if they were a monolithic block with a uniform set of goals and values; portrayal of culture as something static and unchanging; overly simplistic divisions into "us and them." Worst of all, the book aims not to inform, but to frighten the reader. It presents a series of dramatic negative examples: immigrants committing crimes and acts of terror. These examples are memorable and alarming, but are they representative? We are given no numbers that could help us put them in perspective. On the other hand, the book presents no counter-examples of immigrants getting jobs, paying taxes, and living quiet uneventful lives - even though that is how most immigrants live in most places.

    While the problems to which the book attempts to respond are real, this kind of rhetoric is counterproductive. The author seems to be asking for a return to some kind of golden age, when Europe was more culturally and ethnically uniform, and the problems posed by globalization didn't exist. I'm not sure that there has ever been such an age, but even if there had been, the clock can't be turned back. It's not only Europe that is changing, but the whole world. It is becoming more intermixed - not the least because of Europe's own foreign trade policies. The influx of immigrants into Europe is as much an effect of change as it is a cause. I would also like to point out that I don't remember the word "globalization" making a single appearance in the entire book; this should give some idea of how misguided it is in its arguments.

    The thing that saddens me the most is the large number of positive reviews that this book has. That is how many people are allowing themselves to be manipulated through fear, when they could be using their critical thinking skills to evaluate the book's message for themselves.

    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.

    Finally a very balanced outlook

    I don't understand the people that call this one-sided at all to be honest. Murray has an opinion, yes, but he dives into this topic in absolutely massive detail, answering almost all pro-migration arguments and deliberately keeping his con-arguments super rational (most of the time he just lists events, statistics and numbers without a damning value judgement). He shows and very explicitly mentions the humanitarian dilemma this entire story entails while still being able to distinctly wall the humanitarian aspect off of wishful thinking and naive world-savior fantasies. This is the book you want to read if you want to hear a very rational counter-argument against migration. Which is something people who didn't stop after the first chapter to write a review would have found in this book.

    The speaker had a very soothing, clear and great voice, but his accent immitations when he was quoting someone from Africa, Spain or France was just too much. That really takes you out of it.

    Want to know, where we Europeans are going?

    Very impressive summary of european history, latest events in the present age and almost inevitable gloomy end of an era of prosperity in Europe. I always compare the present situation in Europe with 1910 and am sure, that the Europe of 2040 will be a complete different one. We experience history in progress and I do not envy the generation following us
