Summary
Thanks to collapsing birthrates, much of Europe is on a path of willed self-extinction. But birthrates in Muslim nations are declining faster--at a rate never before documented. Europe may have the resources to support an aging population, if at a terrible economic and cultural cost. But in the impoverished Islamic world, an aging population means a civilization on the brink of total collapse. Muslim decline poses new threats to America, challenges we cannot face effectively without a wholly new kind of political analysis that explains how desperate peoples and nations behave. David P. Goldman--author of the celebrated "Spengler" column--reveals how massive shifts in global power are remaking our future: how extinctions of peoples, cultures, and civilizations are not unthinkable, but certain; how for the first time in world history, the birthrate in the West has fallen below replacement level; why birthrates in the Muslim world are falling even faster; why the "Arab Spring" is the precursor of much more violent change in the Islamic world; why looming demographic collapse may encourage Islamic terrorists to "go for broke;" and how the United States can survive the coming world turmoil.--From publisher description
Summary
Argues that the rapidly declining birth rates in Muslim nations will bring Islamic civilization to the brink of collapse, and outlines the challenges the United States faces with the coming shift in global power
