Not worth the money. Download the articles from Birkbeck College for free,
This review is from: Shall the Religious Inherit the Earth?: Demography and Politics in the Twenty-First Century (Paperback)I have read many previous "academic" articles by Eric espousing the same ideas listed in this uninviting book. The truth is that rather than be bold and state his fear of Muslims taking over Europe, he coyly throws in few words about Mormons and Jews so that we get the message that he is an unbiased scholar.
Talking of biased research, I think most Middle Eastern and/or Politics departments at London University appear to have a pro-Israeli academic. This reminds me of Efraim Karsh in Kings College writing venemous anti-Islam articles and books. Take SOAS where some Jewish lecturers teaching Middle Eastern studies are unashamedly sympathetic to Israel. Is having Jewish and Pro-Israel "academics" implanted in UK universities a chance occurence? So much for ubiased academic research.
I must acknowledge that there is a minority alas of courageous Israeli scholars living inside Israel speaking/writing the truth. Please read Neve Gordon's excellent book: Israel's Occupation. It seems Israeli scholars living inside Israel are far more balanced than their Jewish brethern in the UK and the US intent on supporting Israel right or wrong.

Omar, this is not a review. Have you actually read this book? Give us some substantial criticisms of the points Dr Kaufmann makes please. Or remove this garbage, since it looks very much like it is politically, not intellectually, motivated.
