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'.

    Story
    "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.

    "Must read"

    for anyone who wants to know what's happening to Europe and Europeans in relation to immigration since 1945 but especially in last few years has to read this book
    lack of direction and clearly defined policies, delusional and lying politicians, tolerance of immigrants' sadism and primitivism, liberal dictatorship and censorship, masochism and nihilism of Western European populace, complete rejection of religion and much more is tearing the Europe apart and Europeans have only themselves to blame
    this was actually an incredible but disturbing read

    "I'm so glad I read this book!"

    I didn't understand what all the fuss and hostility was about in Europe these days and this book explained a lot. Douglas doesn't waste words he gets right to the point and then thoroughly explains the moving parts affecting each situation. There are plenty of points made in this insightful overview of pertinent recent history. It's funny that we are inundated with news and media but it seems to function as a big sponge soaking up all the happenings and squeezing them into a grey sludge. The Strange Death of Europe is like a lamp that allows you to see the whole shocking picture. With plenty of detail. Yikes. Good luck Europe. We will all miss you if you don't get your shit together.

    "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.

    "Europe is Dying"

    Douglas Murray is a great writer, and he relates a horrifying story about the failed project of multiculturalism of Europe. In reading this book, one may feel a strong sense of irony that leftist politicians push immigrants onto their communities when many of these communities suffer from unemployment, overcrowding, budget constraints, and a high cost of living. The current state of Europe is the perfect storm for a resurgence of ethnic nationalism and prejudice.

    "Frighteningly evidence based"

    Douglas paints a devastating picture of just how dire things have become on the European continent and illustrates both how it has become so bad and how endangered the future existence of European culture is. A critical work.

    "Essential history to learn"

    Murray paints a clear picture of the hard choices Europe has, helping people that are worse off and helping their own people. Fascinating and makes the news from Europe all make more sense. Tough choices ahead for Europe.

    "Wow!!! Quite a eye opener!"

    This book has clearly shown based on the history of the mid to later 20th century that Europe has a guilt ridden and suicidal approach to itself. The continent has bought into the idea that they are the basis for ALL that has gone wrong in the world. Now somehow it deserves to be the group that tries to solve the problems of the world, and all the while letting millions of migrants for any reason inhabit the "eutopia" Europe is only to bring the destruction of all that has become Europe over centuries.

    Quite a read! Very enlightening and sad. The future is not bright for the continent.

    "Simply, a must read."

    Unprecedented in its form, Murray's book is THE book to read about immigration, regardless of your political leanings.

    The expected practical analysis is brilliant but the philosophical and historical discussion is what most amazed me, Murray traces the evolution/degradation of the European psyche back in order to explain the current circumstances of immigration to Europe.

    "Depressing, gripping and provocative"

    Having finished this (audio)book I now feel totally depressed. Murray puts forward the recent events in such a dark manner yet also paints a world far too accurate. A book I wish was far-fetched and untrue.

    "Makes you wonder."

    Highlights how politics has failed in Europe, and how lazy thinking is underpinning the slide of a great culture into the past.

    Worth a read, but prepare to be frustrated, angry and saddened.

    "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...
