Publisher's Summary

The Strange Death of Europe is a highly personal account of a continent and culture caught in the act of suicide. Declining birth rates, mass immigration, and cultivated self-distrust and self-hatred have come together to make Europeans unable to argue for themselves and incapable of resisting their own comprehensive alteration as a society and an eventual end.

This is not just an analysis of demographic and political realities; it is also an eyewitness account of a continent in self-destruct mode. It includes accounts based on travels across the entire continent, from the places where migrants land to the places they end up, from the people who pretend they want them to the places which cannot accept them.

Murray takes a step back at each stage and looks at the bigger and deeper issues which lie behind a continent's possible demise, from an atmosphere of mass terror attacks to the steady erosion of our freedoms. The audiobook addresses the disappointing failure of multiculturalism, Angela Merkel's U-turn on migration, the lack of repatriation, and the Western fixation on guilt. Murray travels to Berlin, Paris, Scandinavia, Lampedusa, and Greece to uncover the malaise at the very heart of the European culture and to hear the stories of those who have arrived in Europe from far away.

This sharp and incisive audiobook ends up with two visions for a new Europe - one hopeful, one pessimistic - which paint a picture of Europe in crisis and offer a choice as to what, if anything, we can do next. But perhaps Spengler was right: 'civilizations, like humans, are born, briefly flourish, decay, and die'.

    "Very informative"

    A very informative account of the EU it's origins and the story and motivations behind it. Our politicians of ALL sides have a lot to answer for

    "Impossible to Ignore"

    A dark yet stirring portrait of a continent and its cultures in decline.
    Murray's thesis on the cause Europe's "suicide" hinges on twin assertions. First, that unprecedented mass migration into Western Europe is rapidly altering the societies of the host countries. Second, that Europe is exhausted and thus unwilling to stand up for itself.

    Murray has been sounding the alarm for years. Now, it seems, the time has come when we can no longer be deaf to it.

    "Brilliant."

    A very well researched book that presents a damning review of the incompetent European leaders and their current immigration policy.

    Excellent narrator and difficult to stop listening.

    "Necessary reading for those that think immigration is an inherent positive to society"

    Brilliant book, brilliantly read. While, as always, there are things to object to, such as, Murray's relative brevity on the positives of immigration, he does at least acknowledge them.

    While many of the readers of this book will no doubt be those that are already convinced of the dangers of immigration, I would recommend this work most strongly to those that believe in open borders, the willingness of others to assimilate, or indeed that there can't be a clash of cultures because culture doesn't exist to begin with.

    Happy reading/listening!

    "Essential But Possibly Depressing Listening"
    Where does The Strange Death of Europe rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Strange Death of Europe?

    The grim realisation that everything I have thought about mass immigration and the way Europe is heading appears to be correct.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, once I got into it I was hooked.


    Any additional comments?

    I wasn't sure about this book before I purchased it but am so glad I did. A superb and thought provoking 'read' for any European who is concerned for the future of our continent.The Narration was excellent.

    "...a warning of the future"

    Whatever happens in Europe, it will take the form of one of the possible outcomes Douglas Murray describes.

    This I believe is the most important book of the 21st century...a mandatory read by every politician and thinking citizen.

    ...we have been told...

    "Appalling European government crime cover up."
    Where does The Strange Death of Europe rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is an excellent book. I can now understand what is going on in Europe and make sense of all the contradictory reports I hear on the news and watch on TV. I am appalled by the government cover up of crime against women in all European countries. I hope Prime Minister Justin Trudeau reads this book and understands what has happened in Europe with respect to immigration and Islam.


    What does Robert Davies bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Robert Davies is able to communicate with the tone of his voice again and again facts which seem incredulous to the listener. I found myself shaking my head time and time again.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I don't think Hollywood will be able to find a super hero in this book, and that’s all Hollywood can do anymore.

    "Must read"

    for anyone who wants to know what's happening to Europe and Europeans in relation to immigration since 1945 but especially in last few years has to read this book
    lack of direction and clearly defined policies, delusional and lying politicians, tolerance of immigrants' sadism and primitivism, liberal dictatorship and censorship, masochism and nihilism of Western European populace, complete rejection of religion and much more is tearing the Europe apart and Europeans have only themselves to blame
    this was actually an incredible but disturbing read

    "I'm so glad I read this book!"

    I didn't understand what all the fuss and hostility was about in Europe these days and this book explained a lot. Douglas doesn't waste words he gets right to the point and then thoroughly explains the moving parts affecting each situation. There are plenty of points made in this insightful overview of pertinent recent history. It's funny that we are inundated with news and media but it seems to function as a big sponge soaking up all the happenings and squeezing them into a grey sludge. The Strange Death of Europe is like a lamp that allows you to see the whole shocking picture. With plenty of detail. Yikes. Good luck Europe. We will all miss you if you don't get your shit together.

    "A sobering tale"

    Extremely well written, Douglas Murray presents a cogent, clear and concise treatise on the sad state of affairs in Europe and the betrayal of the European people by their leaders. It is the most bizarre of times where so many are obsessed by race, racism and stamping out fascism. All the while allying themselves with some of the most backwards of ideologies and depraved people of those found in radical Islam. The book doesn't offer much hope, but perhaps offers the best medicine - truth. Something Europe's ruling class and media outlets seem to care little for.

    "Europe is Dying"

    Douglas Murray is a great writer, and he relates a horrifying story about the failed project of multiculturalism of Europe. In reading this book, one may feel a strong sense of irony that leftist politicians push immigrants onto their communities when many of these communities suffer from unemployment, overcrowding, budget constraints, and a high cost of living. The current state of Europe is the perfect storm for a resurgence of ethnic nationalism and prejudice.

    "One of the best nonfiction books I've encountered"

    As an American, it has been difficult to fully understand what Europe has been going through these last several years. This book really put things into perspective for me.

    This is one of the most informative and startling books I've read in a very long time. The author presents the facts of the situation facing Europe in light of what has been occurring in the Near East. He explains the challenges that the people and governments have been faced with as well as the challenges faced by immigrant populations. The author paints a grim picture of what may await native Europeans and immigrants to Europe in the future, but he balances that by offering a list of viable solutions that could be used to create a path forward.
