The Strange Death of Europe: Immigration, Identity, Islam

  • Heritage Foundation 214 Massachusetts Avenue Northeast Washington, DC, 20002 United States (map)


The Heritage Foundation is hosting a book discussion with the author of The Strange Death of Europe, Douglas Murray.

In his book, Murray 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 freedoms.  He 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.  He concludes 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, it can do next.
