Short Synopsis
Based on extensive firsthand reporting, The End of Europe is a provocative, disturbing look at a continent in unexpected crisis.

Full Synopsis
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, 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 “Brexit;” 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. With President Trump now threatening to abandon America's traditional role as upholder of the liberal world order and guarantor of the contient's security, Europe may be alone in dealing with these unprecedented challenges.

Based on extensive firsthand reporting, this book is a provocative, disturbing look at a continent in unexpected crisis.

"Students of geopolitics and current affairs would do well to spend time with this book, which, though deceptively slender, contains multitudes." ---Kirkus

"James Kirchick is a gloomily brilliant observer of European affairs—panoramic in his survey, precise in his details and anecdotes, severe and persuasive in his judgments, always lucid, always alert." ---Paul Berman, author of The Flight of the Intellectuals

"Like all dystopias, The End of Europe is pedagogy with a fierce moral message. James Kirchick has drawn a masterly portrait of a continent in its deepest crisis since World War II. The book is compulsory reading for anybody who cares about Europe." ---Josef Joffe, author of The Myth of American Decline

"James Kirchick has given us a powerful, penetrating, and elegant analysis of the present state of Europe. This book is not a celebration but a lament and a warning—and also a call to action to Americans and Europeans alike." ---Robert Kagan, author of The World America Made
