Publisher's Summary

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'.

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.

very good, but do be careful

this book is a well crafted anti islamic propaganda piece, which i thoroughly enjoyed as it was thought provoking and well crafted. the author skilfully dismantle the mass media politically correct propaganda, very refreshing, infuriating, and blinding...

I feel it is mistaking Islam for The cause of the death of Europe, while it is only a symptom of a greater disease. No great nation is brought down from outside unless it is rotten from within. if islam can make the headway it is making in Europe, it is because it is a cohesive force that constrain people within a commun frame, direct energies in one directions, while Europe is a "free" society, where everyone is told to be "who they are", atomised individuals, incapable of relating on any level strong enough to ensure a common entity, a common good, something greater than themselves worth defending...

I couldn't help but notice in the chapter on the guilt tripping of the European psyche the greatest guilt-trip of all was carefully omitted, slavery, the massacre of american indians and australians aborigines were discussed and relativised at length while the Holocaust wasn't even mentioned...

Necessary reading for those that think immigration is an inherent positive to society

Brilliant book, brilliantly read. While, as always, there are things to object to, such as, Murray's relative brevity on the positives of immigration, he does at least acknowledge them.

While many of the readers of this book will no doubt be those that are already convinced of the dangers of immigration, I would recommend this work most strongly to those that believe in open borders, the willingness of others to assimilate, or indeed that there can't be a clash of cultures because culture doesn't exist to begin with.

Happy reading/listening!

An Insightful Analysis of the Migrant Crisis

In The Strange Death of Europe Douglas Murray dispels myths about the benefits of mass migration, identifies the origin of the West's loss of faith in its values, institutions, religion and culture and explains how Europe has ended up in such a terrifying situation as well as much more!
