Claire Berlinski contends that Europe has lately become a landmass of endless strikes and demonstrations, of bombs on trains and subways, of radical Islamic cells in every city, and of violent ghettos so hopeless even the police will not enter them. She finds a Europe still in the grip of the same old demons, while also confronting an entirely new set of troubles. Tracing ancient conflicts and newly erupting crises, MENACE IN EUROPE makes clear that problems on the Continent are ultimately America’s problems as well.
Praise for MENACE IN EUROPE:
“Original, fascinating, and important. With deep knowledge and fresh insight, Berlinski shows how some of the problems swirling in Europe (such as nihilism and neo-Nazism) echo patterns from the distant past, while others (welfarism, childlessness, and Islamism) are novel. 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
