Críticas:

" "The Last Days of Europe" spotlights an uncomfortable reality. Hopefully it will generate greater awareness, more open dialogue, and the courage to take steps to deal with Europe' s problems."

-- Henry A. Kissinger, former secretary of state and national security adviser

" An eloquent and eye-opening epitaph for a civilization as much as for a continent-- all the more impressive for its depth of historical understanding as well as its illuminating transatlantic perspective. The preeminent historian of postwar Europe has become the prophet of its decline and fall."

-- Niall Ferguson, Laurence A. Tisch Professor of History, Harvard University, and author of "The War of the World: Twentieth-Century Conflict and the Descent of the West"

" An appraisal of Europe' s present and future that reveals Walter Laqueur at his analytical and reflective best. Compelling . . . A marvel of dispassionate analysis."

-- James R. Schlesinger, former Director of Central Intelligence and Secretary of Energy and of Defense

" One of the more persuasive in a long line of volumes by authors on both sides of the Atlantic chronicling Europe' s decline. . . . Mr. Laqueur' s short book is measured, even sympathetic. . . . This temperate quality makes the book' s theme-- that Europe now faces potentially mortal challenges-- all the more compelling." -- "The Wall Street Journal" " "The Last Days of Europe" spotlights an uncomfortable reality. Hopefully it will generate greater awareness, more open dialogue, and the courage to take steps to deal with Europe' s problems." -- Henry A.

" In the midst of our own immigration debate, Americans cannot afford to miss "The Last Days of ""Europe," . . . Laqueur has no tolerance whatever for political correctness, and doesn' t mince words. . . . Laqueur' s tone may be calm, but his substance is explosive. . . . Bold, subtle, hopeful, piercing, and absolutely terrifying dissection of Europe' s prospects. . . . "The Last" "Days of Europe"' s chilling climax is not to be missed." -- "The National Review Online" " One of the more persuasive in a long line of volumes by authors on both sides of the Atlantic chronicling Europe' s decline. . . . Mr. Laqueur' s short book is measured, even sympathetic. . . . This temperate quality makes the book' s theme-- that Europe now faces potentially mortal challenges-- all the more compelling." -- "The Wall Street Journal" " Succinct and clearly written . . . [Laqueur] says it better and with a greater degree of tolerance of nuance . . . Exemplary clarity. . . . Laqueur is neither apocalyptic nor optimistic but measured and open-minded about the future." -- "The American Conservative" " "The Last Days of Europe" spotlights an uncomfortable reality.

Reseña del editor:

In Brussels in 2004, more than 55 percent of the children born were of immigrant parents
Half of all female scientists in Germany are childless
According to a poll in 2005, more than 40 percent of British Muslims said Jews were a legitimate target for terrorist attacks

What happens when a falling birthrate collides with uncontrolled immigration? "The Last Days of Europe" explores how a massive influx from Asia, Africa, and the Middle East has loaded Europe with a burgeoning population of immigrants, many of whom have no wish to be integrated into European societies but make full use of the host nations' generous free social services.
One of the master historians of twentieth-century Europe, Walter Laqueur is renowned for his "gold standard" studies of fascism, terrorism, and anti-Semitism. Here he describes how unplanned immigration policies and indifference coinciding with internal political and social crises have led to a continent-wide identity crisis. "Self-ghettoization" by immigrant groups has caused serious social and political divisions and intense resentment and xenophobia among native Europeans. Worse, widespread educational failure resulting in massive youth unemployment and religious or ideological disdain for the host country have bred extremist violence, as seen in the London and Madrid bombings and the Paris riots. Laqueur urges European policy makers to maintain strict controls with regard to the abuse of democratic freedoms by preachers of hate and to promote education, productive work, and integration among the new immigrants.
Written with deep concern and cool analysis by a European-born historian with a gift for explaining complex subjects, this lucid, unflinching analysis will be a must-read for anyone interested in international politics and the so-called clash of civilizations."
