How Civilizations Die by David Goldman

This book's full title is How Civilizations Die (and why Islam is dying too) by David P. Goldman, online Columnist Spengler of the Asia Times online. I do not agree with all he says, but David Goldman is a very interesting writer. I had not realized that the fertility rate was falling in the Muslim world. However, there are all sorts of statistics that you can find on the web that verify their drop in fertility.

This is where you find the blog Spengler. It is interesting that the reviews tend to give good or low ratings to this book depending on whether or not they agree with David Goldman. I would give good ratings to someone I disagree with but is an interesting read and shows a different way of looking at the world.

On the Amazon website you often get very good reviews from unknowns. When you go to Amazon website you should start scrolling to the bottom. That is where the good reviews are. There is an interesting review in Forbes by Reuven Brenner. At the site Good Reads there are various views on this book.

Islamic Civilization is Dying talk by David Goldman. There is a interview of David Goldman by Ezra Levant. There is a second interview with David Goldman talking about Europe. In this recent video David Goldman interview with Ezra Levant talks about Iran.

Also, an index of the books I have reviewed are on my website at Books. Follow me on Twitter.
