Audio Book Summary

An Instant New York Times Bestseller!

China has concentration camps now. Why do Westerners claim our sins are unique?

It is now in vogue to celebrate non-Western cultures and disparage Western ones. Some of this is a much-needed reckoning, but much of it fatally undermines the very things that created the greatest, most humane civilization in the world.

In The War on the West, Douglas Murray shows how many well-meaning people have been fooled by hypocritical and inconsistent anti-West rhetoric. After all, if we must discard the ideas of Kant, Hume, and Mill for their opinions on race, shouldn’t we discard Marx, whose work is peppered with racial slurs and anti-Semitism? Embers of racism remain to be stamped out in America, but what about the raging racist inferno in the Middle East and Asia?

It’s not just dishonest scholars who benefit from this intellectual fraud but hostile nations and human rights abusers hoping to distract from their own ongoing villainy. Dictators who slaughter their own people are happy to jump on the “America is a racist country” bandwagon and mimic the language of antiracism and “pro-justice” movements as PR while making authoritarian conquests.

If the West is to survive, it must be defended. The War on the West is not only an incisive takedown of foolish anti-Western arguments but also a rigorous new apologetic for civilization itself.

    Douglas does it again. The war on the west is a vital read. I also want Douglas to read all my audio books.

    Great book with an excellent perspective on not just what is happening, but how it's been happening in plain sight.

    I really like and appreciate Douglas Murray and his work. This book was good, however, I did not find it as good as “The Strange Death of Europe”. That could just be me being sort of sick of hearing the same things over and over about what’s going wrong in the West though. I wish there was a bigger movement of change occurring in the positive direction. I’ve experienced the shock, panic, disbelief, feelings of hopelessness when it comes to not being able to push back against the people who seem to hold so much financial power over the middle and lower classes of America… I think I’ve grown- (sadly) bored by it. Anyway, I do think this book is much worth listening to by someone who is just awakening to the “War on the West” because it will definitely interest you and you will learn a lot and possibly see it from the perspective of TRUTH based in facts. Of course I loved listening to the actual author narrate this. I don’t like when public figures don’t narrate their own books. It’s worth a listen! Or a read!
