Product description

Review

‘Murray shows not just how every aspect of western society has come under the iconoclasts’ gaze – from mathematics to music, Kew Gardens to Jane Austen – but how flimsy their case often is.’ – The Sunday Times

‘Murray writes with wonderful lucidity about the many fronts on which the West is waging war against itself. And he writes with a sense of urgency.’ – Real Clear Politics

‘Well executed… a spirited defence against the Left's assault on the Western tradition.’ – The Daily Telegraph

The War on the West is a monumental book leading to several pivotal realisations.’ – Lotus Eaters

Meticulous, measuredThe War on the West is Douglas Murray’s latest blast against loony left wokery.’ – The Spectator

5.0 out of 5 stars intelligent and cultivated defence of a tolerant and egalatarian society: the contemporay west
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 28 April 2022
Douglas Murray explains that with self-harm the west has been deprecated, insulted and malignly de-constructed by some within. In general these are those whose power and tremendous access to mainstream media is inversely proportional to their culture, knowledge of societies in general throughout history, factual accuracy, character and courage. As Douglas Murray, denounces in this book such woke brigade gleefully rants on and persecutes, cancels, censors, threatens and intimidates everyone in the west about every minor perceived injustice, while remaining cowardly silent and complacent about much graver injustices and discriminations if they occur elsewhere, presently or in the past.
Douglas Murray does not cave in or fears the woke brigade. He is the most brilliant and cultivated writer in exposing the most radical western anti westerners flaws, biases worse than the ones they portray to combat, and lack of gratitude in general about the tolerant and egalitarian society they live in (see photo of conclusion portion).
It is refreshing to read Murray's wittiness in an environment where most other people cave in scared of this woke mob which wants the west to commit suicide, kill its heroes and erase every trace of its culture from Knossos, Athens, Rome and Jerusalem to England’s Magna Carta, Italian renaissance, Spain/Portugal navigations, French illuminism, German industry or great American achievements either in the north like the constitution or putting humans in the moon, or in the south such as the fantastic and wonderful blend of European, African and indigenous culture thriving there in so many countries.
Kudos and thank you to Douglas for standing up!
