Once the world's bastion of liberal, democratic values, Europe is now having to confront demons it thought it had laid to rest. The old pathologies of anti-Semitism, populist nationalism, and territorial aggression are threatening to tear the postwar European consensus apart. In riveting dispatches from this unfolding tragedy, James Kirchick shows us the shallow disingenuousness of the leaders who pushed for "Brexit;" examines how a vast migrant wave is exacerbating tensions between Europeans and their Muslim minorities; and describes how Russian imperial ambitions are destabilizing nations from Estonia to Ukraine. In August's Cover to Cover, james Kirchick joins Bill Clifford for a discussion on Kirchick's new book, The End of Europe: Dictators, Demagogues, and the Coming Dark Age.
