Editorial Reviews

'It has become impossible to pretend otherwise: Europe is in steep decline. The Continental dream of economic prosperity, social security and international good citizenship has given way to a nightmare of chronic unemployment, unsustainable debt, demographic decline, political paralysis and street violence. In The Decline and Fall of Europe, Francesco Bongiovanni offers the most perceptive account to date of a Europe that indulged too many illusions and is now awakening to bankruptcy.' - Bret Stephens, Wall Street Journal'An important read for anyone interested in the future of Europe.' - John Paulson, President, Paulson & Co. Inc'A very lively and witty survey of Europe's ills.' - Dominique Moisi, author of The Geopolitics of Emotions'Provocative and alarming, a wake-up call for twenty-first century Europeans.' - Nils Pratley, The Guardian'In view of the current crisis in the European Union in general and the Euro zone in particular, the arrival of this book could not be more timely. It is a comprehensive review of the way the initial favourable development of the E.U. has gone wrong and the range of problems it currently faces. Should be read by every MP in the Union's 27 countries!' -Stephen Valdez, author of An Introduction to Global Financial Markets
