Once the world’s bastion of liberal, democratic values, Europe is now having to confront demons it thought it had laid to rest. The old pathologies of anti-Semitism, fascism, populist nationalism, and territorial aggression are threatening to tear the European postwar consensus apart. In riveting dispatches from this unfolding tragedy, James Kirchick shows us the shallow disingenuousness of the leaders who pushed for the “Brexit” vote, talks with the mild-mannered former accountant who is the charming face of Hungary’s neofascist Jobbik party, examines how a vast migrant wave is exacerbating tensions between Europeans and their Muslim minorities, explores the rising anti-Semitism that causes Jewish schools and synagogues in France and Germany to resemble armed bunkers, and describes how Russian imperial ambitions are destabilizing nations from Estonia to Ukraine.
 
Based on extensive firsthand reporting, this book is a provocative, disturbing look at a continent in unexpected crisis.

Editorial Reviews

“Those of us who lived on the wrong side of the Berlin Wall celebrated the beginning of a new era of peace and democracy when the Iron Curtain fell. Now that era may already be over, and James Kirchick vividly explains why we are now facing the end of Europe instead of the end of history.”—Garry Kasparov, chairman of the Human Rights Foundation and author of Winter Is Coming: Why Vladimir Putin and the Enemies of the Free World Must Be Stopped
