We think of Europe as the charming continent of windmills and gondolas. 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. This isn’t the Europe we thought we knew. Tracing the ancient conflicts and newly erupting crises across the continent, journalist Claire Berlinski reveals why Islamic radicalism and terrorist indoctrination flourish as Europe fails to assimilate millions of Muslim immigrants; how long-repressed destructive instincts are suddenly reemerging; how the death of religious faith has created a hopeless, morally unmoored Europe that clings to dangerous ideologies; why the notion of a united Europe is a fantasy, and what it all means for the United States.

Summary

Summary

We think of Europe as the charming continent of windmills and gondolas. 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. This isn’t the Europe we thought we knew.

Tracing the ancient conflicts and newly erupting crises across the continent, journalist Claire Berlinski reveals why Islamic radicalism and terrorist indoctrination flourish as Europe fails to assimilate millions of Muslim immigrants; how long-repressed destructive instincts are suddenly reemerging; how the death of religious faith has created a hopeless, morally unmoored Europe that clings to dangerous ideologies; why the notion of a united Europe is a fantasy, and what it all means for the United States.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Serious, well researched—and riveting. More than a piercing alarm over Muslim radicalism in Europe, this thoughtful book takes us on a tour of the continent’s spiritual crisis.” Stanley Kurtz, contributing editor, National Review Online
“Chilling, persuasive, and urgent. Most Americans prefer to think of ‘The Old World’ as charming, quaint, and irrelevant, but Berlinski shows why all of us need to worry about the harrowing dangers facing European civilization.”  Michael Medved, nationally syndicated talk show host
“One of the wisest and most compulsively readable public intellectuals writing today, Berlinski presents a work of Orwellian foresight and Churchillian conviction that will tear a welcome hole in our complacency and teach us to rethink our political future.”  Norah Vincent, former Los Angeles Times op-ed columnist
“Original, fascinating, and important…She warns non-Europeans: the region that nearly devastated the world in the twentieth century threatens again to inflict grievous damage in the twenty-first.”  Daniel Pipes, director of the Middle East Forum
