Product Description

Review

Caldwell is a bracing, clear-eyed analyst of European pieties . . . this book pulsates with ideas (Observer )

The most rigorous and plainspoken examination of Muslim immigration in Europe to date . . . well researched, fervently argued and morally serious (New York Times )

Dispenses a sharp common sense . . . If his book sharpens a so far sluggish debate, it will have served an important purpose (Martin Woollacott Guardian )

Reflections on the Revolution in Europe will inspire some readers, infuriate others and leave very few indifferent. That's exactly as it should be - because wherever you stand on this debate, it's one we can't afford to ignore. (Sunday Business Post )

Review

'Caldwell is a bracing, clear-eyed analyst of European pieties ... compared with most literature on migration, so often dull and cliché-ridden, this book pulsates with ideas.'

I've been ordering from Amazon for a very long time. Yet this is the first time I have bothered to write something about one of the many books I have bought and read from Amazon. This is because Caldwell has hit a nerve. What he discusses is something that I (along with many of my friends-from various nationalities,religious and ethnic groups) have noticed around West London.

YES, this book is written for an American audience who already believe and merely seek confirmation that Europe will be overun by Muslims and YES, this book will give the racists, xenophobes out there plenty of ammunition. Though this may be the case and indeed very unfortunate, the main thesis of the book seems spot on.

Consequences asside, the book is brilliantly written and very well researched. Some posters have commentated that the author has an agenda. Well, so what? What book or film doesn't? This does not make it flawed in any way. The harsh reality is that Europe is and continues to change and not necessarily for the better. And it is immigrants, specifically certain immigrants who are contributing to this unwanted change. The book makes the point that it is a problem all over Europe, not confined to just a few countries. Critics will call Caldwell alarmist, but people need only look around them and leave political correctness aside... There is an issue in Eroupe with Islam. One only needs to look at all the various social problems that have occured throughout Europe (and the world...). From the Sulman Rushdie affair, to the various bombings and terrorist plots, to the Danish cartoons, to honour killings around Europe, and so on... Soemthing is clearly going on and much of it has to do with one particular religion.

If you are interested in the current and future impact of mass immigration of Islam into Europe, then this is the book for you. The author, Christopher Caldwell, has used his extensive knowledge to provide a trenchant analysis of how Islamic religion and culture is re-shaping Europe. He questions whether Islam can possibly sit in harmony alongside the liberal and secular traditions of the West and what this means for indiginous Europeans. He argues that European policy makers have unquestionably bowed to the demands of Muslims in policy making but under-estmated the culture-shaping potential of the Islamic religion, thereby trapping Europe in a dilemma to which it has no solution. Caldwell supports his arguments with evidence and examples drawn from recent history in this easily accessible read. Highly recommended!

Interesting and very well written and researched. Perhaps its biggest strength is that it is written in a way that most could understand, meaning it is not just for political students or those with a deep interest in the matter, but all, as it is all of us who are effected by the subject.

It is shocking, no doubt there, the situation seems far worse than I originally thought, but it was refreshing to see a a structured academic approach against mass immigration rather than the usual racist thugs who push such views with little to no evidence to back up, undermining their entire argument.

A read for all, especially politicians !

Essential reading for anyone who cares about the future of Britain & Europe.

I don't agree with everything the author writes - I think he's extremely generous to Enoch Powell, for example - but he has produced a work that simply can't be ignored. His analysis of the failure of multiculturalism in general, and in dealing with a large Muslim minority in particular, is excellent.

There are an awful lot of hard facts in this book that make liberals of all shades uneasy - in particular, the substantial evidence that the second an third generations of Muslim immigrants are de-integrating. Not just what Muslims are saying to opinion pollsters. either: the tiny numbers of Muslims marrying outside the faith or serving in the British Armed Forces - compare the black community for a contrast - add weight to the author's claim that Muslims just aren't interested in joining mainstream British society.

Far, far superior to the self-obsessed, scattershot writings of Bruce Bawer.

I'd also recommend "Murder in Amsterdam" by Ian Buruma and "Immigrant Nations" by Paul Scheffer, both of which shed much light on the failure of multiculturalism in continental Europe.

Format: Paperback
Europe is in trouble. That once controversial claim is now widely accepted, by both the general public and the political elites, around the World and in Europe itself. There are several demographic, cultural and economic trends that are going on in Europe these days that make a lot of people gravely concerned. There is interplay between all of those trends that makes them hard to detangle and pull apart individual causes of the present European predicament. Nonetheless, it is beyond doubt that the immigration, and especially immigration from the Islamic countries, is one of the most pressing political and social issues in the Europe today.

"Reflections on the Revolution in Europe" is a penetrating, insightful, and informative analysis of the history and effects of immigration on the western European countries and societies. Unlike many other authors of similar books in recent years, Caldwell traces the origins of mass immigrations to the post World War II political and intellectual trends that saw an almost complete reversal of attitude in many European countries towards immigrants and ethnic minorities. However, what started out as a slow, gradual inflow of a few "temporary" workers who were eager to adapt to their new countries, over the ensuing decades transformed into a veritable deluge of immigrants who had very little interest or incentive to assimilate. When the immigrant numbers were still relatively low and there were hardly any public demonstrations of their influence, it was possible to ignore these problems and hope that they will somehow miraculously right themselves.
