5.0 out of 5 stars A wake up call to Western societies, 9 Jun. 2009
Well written and holding back no punches, this book serves as a warning to those societies which combine strong centralised state control (e.g. heavily subsidised welfare state and pensions) with a historty of high levels of immigration and multiculturalism.

The point is well made; it doesn't matter what side of the fence you sit, once society's demographics have changed, with more people arriving from, or born into other cultures not attuned to the specific Western (read British, American, Canadian, French, Dutch, etc) culture, conflict is bound to increase, as each grouping within society vies for power. And as the elites give more ground to minority cultural groups, so society will shift away from the liberal (free speech) democratic (freedom of voting choice) path it has followed for the last 60-70 years. Steyn doesn't predict a collapse of society any time soon, more an erosion of social values and expectations such that our grandchildren will be born into a world very different (i.e. a lot less free and tolerant, with far more social strife) from the one in which we live today.

A great book, soon to be banned in Britain/France/Netherlands too?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read!, 25 Mar. 2007
This review is from: The Shadow of Doubt (Paperback)
Thoroughly enjoyable and informative - very interesting to learn about such an important case that had gripped the nation only 150 years ago...and that I had never even heard about it before!

I highly recommend this book.
