Review

" Bruce Bawer reveals how self-acclaimed European morality proves abjectly amoral in its appeasement of radical Islamic anti-Semitism, homophobia, gender apartheid, and religious intolerance. A sensitive and sober portrait of an increasingly insensitive and reckless continent."
-- Victor Davis Hanson, Senior Fellow, Hoover Institution, Stanford University, and author of "Carnage and Culture" and "An Autumn of War"

" An honest and engaging account of a problem which, if left unaddressed, could engulf Europe in conflict. Europeans would do well to heed Mr. Bawer's advice and open their eyes."
-- Abraham H. Foxman, National Director, Anti-Defamation League; author, "Never Again? The Threat of the New Anti-Semitism"

" Bawer paints an alarming picture of a continent in deep trouble and deeper denial-- but now, perhaps, on the verge of waking up. Some books are merely important. This one is necessary."
-- Jonathan Rauch, senior writer and columnist for "National Journal "magazine in Washington and a correspondent for the" Atlantic Monthly"

" Bruce Bawer has produced a book that is at once riveting, disturbing, fascinating, chilling, and shocking. It is required reading for anyone who wants to understand how militant Islam has insinuated itself into the heart of the West."

-- Steven Emerson, Executive Director of the Investigative Project on Terrorism and author of "American Jihad: The Terrorists Living Amongst Us
"
" Bruce Bawer brings an American' s sensibilities and a writer' s insights to bear on the insistence by West Europeans that theyreally do not have a Muslim problem. Backed by deep research and wide personal experience, he argues that this blind denial is leading the continent to certain disaster. Bawer makes his case moderately but eloquently and powerfully. Will Europeans heed his warning?"
-- Daniel Pipes, Director, Middle East Forum

" Bawer punctures the moral pretensions of our ' betters' in the Old World. Their supine acceptance of the Muslim oppression of women, their flatulent anti-Americanism, their renewed anti-Semitism-- all are fully documented. There is something memorable on every page. Bawer writes with intelligence and passion. A fascinating analysis of Europe' s death spiral."
-- Mona Charen, syndicated columnist and author of "Useful Idiots"

From the Inside Flap

Bruce Bawer has lived in Europe since 1999. WHILE EUROPE SLEPT is his enlightening and disturbing report on anti-American and anti-Israeli sentiment in Europe and on the egregious failure of European liberals to confront Islamic extremism in their own countries. Traveling to major cities and talking with people in trains, cafes, restaurants, and on street corners, Bawer came face-to-face with the peculiar mix of moralistic smugness and abysmal ignorance that feeds the rising tide of hatred toward the United States. He found, as well, a widespread refusal to grapple with problems caused by a growing Islamic presence in Europe-from the violation of immigration laws to appalling incidents of honor killings to horrific acts of terrorism, including the assassination of a prominent Dutch politician and the March 2003 bombing in Madrid.
Bawer warns that Europe can no longer ignore the clash of civilizations raging on its own territory and around the world. Failure to recognize the problems and react quickly, he predicts, will lead to a virulent right-wing nationalism of a kind not seen since the 1930s.
