About this product
- DescriptionOld Europe s new crisis. Europe, the charming continent of windmills andgondolas. But lately, Europe has become the continent of endless strikes and demonstrations, bombs on the trains and subways, radical Islamic cells in every city, and ghettos so hopeless and violent even the police won t enter them. In Spain, a terrorist attack prompts instant capitulation to the terrorists demands. In France, the suburbs go up in flames every night. In Holland, politicians and artists are murdered for speaking frankly about Islamic immigration. This isn t the Europe we thought we knew. What s going on over there? Traveling overland from London to Istanbul, journalist Claire Berlinski shows why the Continent has lately appeared so bewildering and often so thoroughly obxious to Americans. Speaking to Muslim immigrants, German rock stars, French cops, and Italian women who have better things to do than have children, she finds that Europe is still, despite everything, in the grip of the same old ancient demons. Anyone who kws the history can sense it: There is something ugly and familiar in the air. But something new is happening as well. Indeed, Europe w confronts and seems unable to cope with an entirely new set of troubles. Tracing the ancient conflicts and newly erupting crises, Menace in Europe reveals: Why Islamic radicalism and terrorist indoctrination flourish as Europe fails to assimilate millions of Muslim immigrants How plummeting birthrates hurtle Europe toward ecomic and cultural catastrophe Why hatred of America has become ubiquitous on Europe s streets, in its books, newspapers, and music, and at the highest levels of government How long-repressed destructive instincts are suddenly reemerging How the death of religious faith has created a hopeless, morally unmoored Europe that clings to anti-Americanism, anti-Semitism, and other dangerous ideologies Why the tion of a united Europe is a fantasy and what that means for the United States In the end, these are t separate issues. Berlinski provocatively demonstrates that Europe s political and cultural crisis mirrors its profound moral and spiritual crisis. But this is t just Europe s problem. Menace in Europe makes clear that the spiritual voidat the heart ofEuropeisultimately our problem too. And America will pay a terrible price if we continue to igre it. From the Hardcover edition.
