Inhaltsangabe

Once the world's bastion of liberal, democratic values, Europe is now having to confront demons it thought it had laid to rest. The old pathologies of anti-Semitism, populist nationalism, and territorial aggression are threatening to tear the European postwar consensus apart.

In riveting dispatches from this unfolding tragedy, James Kirchick shows us the shallow disingenuousness of the leaders who pushed for "Brexit"; examines how a vast migrant wave is exacerbating tensions between Europeans and their Muslim minorities; explores the rising anti-Semitism that causes Jewish schools and synagogues in France and Germany to resemble armed bunkers; and describes how Russian imperial ambitions are destabilizing nations from Estonia to Ukraine.

With President Trump now threatening to abandon America's traditional role as upholder of the liberal world order and guarantor of the continent's security, Europe may be alone in dealing with these unprecedented challenges.

Based on extensive firsthand reporting, this book is a provocative, disturbing look at a continent in unexpected crisis.

Kritikerstimmen

"Students of geopolitics and current affairs would do well to spend time with this book, which, though deceptively slender, contains multitudes." ( Kirkus)

Eye-opening analysis of contemporary Europe

After having heard the audio book for the second time, this riveting analysis of contemporary Europe remains as eye-opening as after the first time. James Kirchick explains the post-factual world of neo-nationalistic governments and narcissistic leaders from a clearly liberal and pluralistic point of view.
