"Angst ums Abendland" (Fears For the West)

Book Presentation with Daniel Bax (audio recording available, in German)

Right-wing populist parties like the "Alternative for Germany" and movements such as the "Patriotic Europeans against the Islamization of the West" use the dislike of Muslims and their religion as fuel. But anti-Muslim sentiments are widespread in all strata and across the whole political spectrum – throughout Europe.
