The most rigorous and plainspoken examination of Muslim immigration in Europe to date, a sobering book that walks right up to, if never quite crossing, the line between being alarming and being alarmist . . . well researched, fervently argued and morally serious. (New York Times )
Caldwell is a bracing, clear-eyed analyst of European pieties . . . compared with most literature on migration, this book pulsates with ideas. (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. (The Sunday Business Post )
'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.'See all Product Description

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.Read more ›
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.
Although terrorism gets all the headlines, it is really simple demographics that is the most frightening aspect of this problem, as the book makes clear. This, of course, is deemed a taboo topic and almost never mentioned in our political debates.
Is there still time to save Europe? Maybe - if enough people read this book.
So don't just read this book. Buy copies for your friends and make them read it. Order a copy through your local library so that others will have the chance to read it too.
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 !
