In pochi anni, alla fine del XX secolo, l'Europa è diventata una società multietnica: senza alcuna programmazione, senza una guida politica. Su 375 milioni di europei, ben 40 milioni vivono fuori dal loro paese d'origine: in quasi tutte le città europee, gli immigrati sono più del 10%.
La maggior parte arriva dall'Africa, dall'Asia, dall'America Latina. Ma questi immigrati ? che hanno culture e tradizioni molto diverse dalle nostre ? in quale misura sono assimilabili? E che cosa succederà degli "indigeni" europei, con il loro basso tasso di natalità? E in particolare, quale può essere il rapporto con una minoranza di 20 milioni di persone, culturalmente coesa, come quella musulmana? Il problema dell'identità e del futuro delle nazioni europee non era mai stato esplorato con altrettanta lucidità.

THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK It’s the hottest of hot topics here in Britain and I thought I’d try to think about it more, but maybe now I wish I hadn’t. Whichever way you think about it, it doesn’t make you feel good. Thinking about immigration is really hard if you’re a white leftish British person. But Leggi tutto
If you have time to spare and are interested about the impact Muslim immigrants are making on Europe, then read this book. I'll try my best to summarize what this book is about. Europe messed up big time with immigration after WWII. Most immigrants are Muslims, and they aren't adjusting very well to Leggi tutto
This is a persuasive expose on immigration and the growth of Islam in Europe. Historically Europe has been a source of out-migration – mostly to America. Only since the end of the Second World War after Western Europe stabilized and commenced re-building did it allow immigration from outside its peri Leggi tutto
The more time you spend with Christopher Caldwell and his all-over-the-map musings on his conviction that we should all be afraid, very afraid, of the danger presented by each and every Muslim in the world, the more you start to wonder if he is not in fact playing some kind of Stephen Colbert angle
I read some of the other readers' comments on the book. Its interesting that the people who rated it with 4 or 5 stars didn't exactly get warm fuzzy notions from the information therein. But the people who said it wasn't a good book called the author a racist xenophobic liar. This book poses some re Leggi tutto
This book, published in 2009, shows its age. It was written before the mass immigration to Europe of the past few years, and also before the increase in Muslim terror. While nothing the book says is wrong, and its analysis is sound enough (though it nowhere justifies, or even attempts to justify, th Leggi tutto
I remember living in Europe in the 1990s and realizing for the first time that it had become home to waves of immigrants who had recently arrived from the former Eastern Bloc and around the world, and perhaps most noticeably from the Middle East. In my American education the focus had always been on Leggi tutto
Good overview of the history of mass immigration to Europe and an analysis of the effects and pitfalls of this phenomenon, especially regarding the mass immigration of Muslim people from third world countries. Book was published in 2009, so it doesn’t anticipate the severity of the current situation Leggi tutto
I could almost have cut and pasted the official book description into this review and left it at that, since the book description says it very clearly. The Europe we have known is disappearing and what replaces it is, as yet, an unknown quantity. The future is up for grabs and there are numerous cul Leggi tutto
Trauma from past fascist regimes or colonial culpability, Europeans have serious issues dealing with immigration without being prey to the most vicious passions, when the topic is not plain and simply taboo. Christopher Caldwell demonstrates here that they are wrong. Facing migratory movements more
