This review is from: Reflections on the Revolution in Europe: Immigration, Islam and the West (Paperback)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!
