Pressestimmen

“Bruce Bawer reveals how self-acclaimed European morality proves abjectly amoral in its appeasement of radical Islamic anti-Semitism, homophobia, gender apartheid, and religious intolerance. A sensitive and sober portrait of an increasingly insensitive and reckless continent.”
—Victor Davis Hanson, Senior Fellow, Hoover Institution, Stanford University, and author of Carnage and Culture and An Autumn of War


“An honest and engaging account of a problem which, if left unaddressed, could engulf Europe in conflict. Europeans would do well to heed Mr. Bawer's advice and open their eyes.”

—Abraham H. Foxman, National Director, Anti-Defamation League; author, Never Again? The Threat of the New Anti-Semitism
 

“Bawer paints an alarming picture of a continent in deep trouble and deeper denial—but now, perhaps, on the verge of waking up. Some books are merely important. This one is necessary.”

—Jonathan Rauch, senior writer and columnist for National Journal magazine in Washington and a correspondent for the Atlantic Monthly


“Bruce Bawer has produced a book that is at once riveting, disturbing, fascinating, chilling, and shocking. It is required reading for anyone who wants to understand how militant Islam has insinuated itself into the heart of the West.”
 
—Steven Emerson, Executive Director of the Investigative Project on Terrorism and author of American Jihad: The Terrorists Living Amongst Us


“Bruce Bawer brings an American’s sensibilities and a writer’s insights to bear on the insistence by West Europeans that they really do not have a Muslim problem. Backed by deep research and wide personal experience, he argues that this blind denial is leading the continent to certain disaster. Bawer makes his case moderately but eloquently and powerfully. Will Europeans heed his warning?”

—Daniel Pipes, Director, Middle East Forum


“Bawer punctures the moral pretensions of our ‘betters’ in the Old World. Their supine acceptance of the Muslim oppression of women, their flatulent anti-Americanism, their renewed anti-Semitism—all are fully documented. There is something memorable on every page. Bawer writes with intelligence and passion. A fascinating analysis of Europe’s death spiral.”

—Mona Charen, syndicated columnist and author of Useful Idiots

We are still allowed to write critical books about Islam.
Bruce Bawer has. You and I are still allowed to read these books and criticize them all we want, praise them or trash them. That's free speech. It's a great Western value people in the past have fought hard for. Lost their lives over.

According to Bruce Brawer, an American living in Norway, this is about to change unless we Europeans who are still enjoying our innocent beauty sleep wake up.

This is the message of Bruce Bawer's book 'While Europe slept'.

As readable and non-intellectual (I mean that positively) Bawer's writing style is, the sharper and more non-compromising is his message.
Basically, if we don't call the common enemy, fundamentalist Islam, by its real name, get our heads out of the sand and stop being so apologetically politically correct NOW, JETZT, NU, ADESSO, IMMEDIATEMENT, Europe's future is looking very dark indeed.
Brawer's analysis of Western Europe's failed immigration politics and its attitude towards immigrants rings very, very true.

The book also dedicates a substantial part to explaining the paradox of the ubiquitous anti-Americanism among Western Europeans. Certain aspects of Brawer's sweeping analysis hit the bull's eye while others seem a bit more dubious.
For instance, although Brawer is not explicitly pro-Bush, he delivers harsh critique to all Europeans, normal citizens, politicians and members of the intellectual elite alike, who criticize Bush's resolve in dealing with dictators and tyrants and, ultimately, America's war in Iraq. However, Brawer fails to mention (deliberately or not) the lacking evidence for the existence of weapons of mass destruction, which, after all, was the main pretext for starting the war.

Format: Taschenbuch
Despite its sensationalist title this is a good book.
The basic thesis and observations are well put and argued (I should like to test how great Bawer's linguistic skills in the three dozen or so Euroepan languages he claims to know really are - he does seem very proud of them. Even a smattering of French and Norwegian of course would put him ahead of 99 percent of his compatriots).
The book's greatest asset is the great wealth of examples for worrying developments which the mainline media generally prefer to cover with silence. You'll find dozens of examples for Europe's inability and fear to deal with the growing Islamic influence and developments eroding her basic liberties.
There are two drawbacks, however which greatly hamper the book's usefulness:
- Especially in the first third the author tends to constantly compare Europe's failures and shortcomings to how brilliantly and better the USA are handling matters. Firstly this is simply not very convincing, considering the country's problems. It betrays a certain ethnocentric blindness which must harm Bawer's overall reasoning on the issue in question. It will secondly not be useful for the book's impact: If you want to convince people of your point of view it is not useful to constantly denigrate the very basics of their society.
- Bawer quotes all his examples without giving any sources. The ones which I remember he seems to report accurately enough but the book would have been ever so much better, had he added footnotes with nothing but bibliographical data on the sources of what he tells us. The book won't equip you with arguments beyond anecdotal evidence.
As it is Bawer won't get beyond preaching to the converted, I am afraid.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
In this absorbing work, Bawer examines the psychological, moral and political aspects of Europe's current predicament and its reaction to the threat posed by large unassimilated minorities in its midst. One of the most fascinating revelations concerns the monolithic multiculturalism of the continent's academic, media and political establishment. Political journalists are part of this ideological club so they consider mainstream politicians as colleagues. One consequence is that the ideological range of the European media is quite narrow. Rigid adherence to multiculturalism renders the integration of immigrants impossible with the result that members of these communities turn to Islamism for inspiration.

Beneath the surface tolerance and welfarism, there lurks something sinister in Europe today, something that the sanctimonious political correctness, anti-Americanism and anti-Zionism of the elites cannot cover up. Bawer exposes Europeans' nativism and intense awareness of ethnicity as manifested through subtle discrimination and the bigotry revealed in private discourse. Reared as bureaucrats, European politicians aspire to lucrative positions at the EU and the United Nations. The fall of the Berlin Wall did not result in gratitude towards the USA but increased resentment.

The first manifestations of the clash of civilization have been the murders of Van Gogh and Fortuyn, the Madrid bombing & London bombings, the 2005/6 riots in France and the uproar about the Danish cartoons. These are just the beginning of an ominous cultural conflict.
