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