“No Decent Answers”–John Derbyshire On Douglas Murray’s THE STRANGE DEATH OF EUROPE

John Derbyshire   July 30, 2017

The Strange Death Of Europe is the first book of Douglas Murray’s I have read.  Checking on Amazon.com before I started it, I saw that Murray’s previous works include Neoconservatism: Why We Need It (2006) and Bosie (2000).  The latter is a biography of Oscar Wilde’s boyfriend Lord Alfred Douglas; Murray is openly homosexual.
While of course I wish no ill to persons of either inclination, a homosexual neocon would not be my first choice of companion on an expedition up the Limpopo, so I opened Strange Death with low expectations.
I put it down at last in a much better mood.  Murray’s written a useful and interesting book, that I hope will be widely read.
Murray’s subject is the catastrophe that has been visited on Europe—including Britain, and with some side commentary on British-settler nations—by mass Third World immigration, especially of Muslims, in the decades since WW2.
