Douglas Murray’s recently released The Strange Death of Europe: Immigration, Identity, Islam provides an explanation for the decline of Europe and its culture, in what Murray refers to as an act of suicide. He argues that declining birth rates, mass immigration, cultivated self-distrust and self-hatred have resulted in a Europe that is no longer willing to resist the comprehensive change in its society that will ultimately destroy it. The book is not only an analysis of demographic and political realities, but also an eyewitness account of a continent in self-destruct mode.
The Henry Jackson Society is delighted to invite you to an event with our very own Douglas Murray who will share his views on what is happening to the fabric of European society, which he has outlined in his new book. The book offers a first-hand perspective, backed with research and evidence, of the failure of multiculturalism in Europe. In this highly personal account, Murray includes his reports from all across Europe. He travelled to Berlin, Paris and Scandinavia to uncover various failing multicultural policies that are the root cause of what he describes as the malaise at the very heart of European culture. Murray also visited the immigration centres at Lampedusa and Greece to directly hear the stories of those who have voyaged from so far away to come to Europe. Each chapter takes a look at the issues that lie behind the ‘continent’s death wish’, from Europe’s obsession with guilt to its leaders’ self-righteous moral superiority. Murray leaves us with two visions of the future – one hopeful, one pessimistic – which show a Europe in crisis and what we can do about it.
*We will be selling copies of Douglas Murray’s The Strange Death of Europe on the day for the price of £15 cash only. Please bring the correct amount of change.*
