Francesco M. Bongiovanni returns with a sequel to "The Decline and the Fall of Europe” , a book the press called “A wake-up call for the 21st century”.  Since 2012 Europe has been confronted with new, unexpected game-changing challenges such as the refugee crisis and its human tsunami, the surprise of Brexit and the explosion of 'alternative' politics. Europeans have finally come to realize that the open-societies that they have been comfortably living in are under threat and fragmenting, leaving their survival uncertain. Minorities are falling prey to an Islamist ideology that conveys values and customs diametrically opposed to European ones. Terrorist acts have become the 'new normal', part of daily life. The North-South cleavage brought about by the eurozone crisis is now completed by a deep East-West cleavage born from the refugee crisis. Against this backdrop, a Germany that is not all that it seems has become Europe’s de-facto ruler, but is unfit to lead, while Trump’s America cannot be counted on as it once used to. A beacon of stability and prosperity in the past, Europe, facing new and terrifying challenges is today more than ever torn apart, increasingly unstable and adrift…

"A wake-up call for the 21st century".

Nils Pratley - THE GUARDIAN

"The most perceptive account to date of a Europe that indulged in too many illusions".

Europe stands on the brink of a monumental fall, wrestling with colossal economic, social, political and strtategic challenges. 'The Decline and Fall of Europe' reveals the hidden cracks that threaten to tear Europe apart, many of which hgave been deliberately ignored by politicians for decades, and in the process asks the question - is Project Europe really worth saving?
