WITH A NEW AFTERWORD In his controversial and critically acclaimed While Europe Slept, Bruce Bawer outlined the danger that Islamic immigration posed to traditional European values. In this provocative follow-up, he takes up the West's recent trend of silence and appeasement in the face of cultural intimidation by radical Islam. From an examination of coverage of the shocking murder of Dutch filmmaker Theo Van Gogh to the widespread denunciation of the Danish editors who published editorial cartoons mocking Mohammed, Bawer shows how radical Islam has cowed Western media, politicians, intellectuals, and religious leaders into believing that we must give up the right of free expression to peacefully coexist with the Muslim world. Fearless and excoriating, Surrender is an unapologetic and uncompromising defense of free speech that will stir conservatives and liberals more

Review quote

Praise for Surrender Bawer is unquestionably correct, and that fact is quite simply terrifying. The New York Times Book Review An alarming, depressing, brilliant and remarkably courageous book. Bawer s conclusion is bleak but uncompromising. Martin Sieff, The Washington Times Sublimely literate and rational. . . . An immensely important and urgent book. Booklist (starred review) Written with an urgency and clarity that makes it hard to stop reading and re-reading it. It should be studied by all who wish to understand the forces at work in the West that make an Islamic House of Peace a brewing nightmare. Ayaan Hirsi Ali, author of Infidel Praise for While Europe Slept A must-read book. Philadelphia Inquirer A clarion call for the West to understand the radical threat to our freedoms from politicized fundamentalist Islam. Andrew Sullivan Indispensable. . . . Aportrait of a powder keg continent.
