Waterstones Says

This blistering polemic from the author of The Madness of Crowds investigates the ways in which vilification of the West and extreme political polarisation are used to direct attention away from iniquitous projects, and why a deconstruction of political discourse is vital for protecting democratic values.

The brilliant and provocative new book from one of the world's foremost political writers.

The anti-Western revisionists have been out in recent years. It is high time that we revise them in turn...

In The War on the West, international bestselling author Douglas Murray asks: if the history of humankind is a history of slavery, conquest, prejudice, genocide and exploitation, why are only Western nations taking the blame for it?

It's become, he explains, perfectly acceptable to celebrate the contributions of non-Western cultures, but discussing their flaws and crimes is called hate speech. What's more it has become acceptable to discuss the flaws and crimes of Western culture, but celebrating their contributions is also called hate speech. Some of this is a much-needed reckoning; however, some of it is part of a larger international attack on reason, democracy, science, progress, and the citizens of the West by dishonest scholars, hatemongers, hostile nations and human rights abusers hoping to distract from their ongoing villainy.

In The War on the West, Douglas Murray shows how many well-meaning people have been lured into protests and polarisation by such lies and hypocrisy. A blistering and important polemic, Murray's latest book carefully and methodically shows how far political discourse has strayed in Europe and America from its stated goals: justice and equality. Propelled by an incisive deconstruction of inconsistent arguments and activism, towards a clarion call for the defence of enlightenment values, The War on the West is one of the most important books for a generation, cementing Murray as one of the world's foremost political writers.

“A wise and sadly necessary book which aims to add balance to the assault on Western values and achievements.”

I'm just a normal average guy, certainly nothing special in any department, living a quite life in the south of England. As I rattle towards 60 I've noticed a growing clamour of noisy, often accusatory and... More

“A horrendous book, surprising any place would sell this”

This book throughout is plagued with what I can only call a series of straw man arguments to justify harmful ideologies. Referring to equality as “woke” or “Marxist” (with little actually understanding of Marxist... More

“A brilliant and well written book”

This book is probably one of the most important books written in the last few years about a subject, wokeism and anti-western rhetoric, that has become increasingly shrill as it spirals into more and more moral... More
