''In How Civilizations Die, David Goldman muses on population trends and religion with a breathtaking depth, originality, and panache. Some of his startling but documented predictions: Europe is in its death throes. Muslim demographic collapse will undercut Islamic triumphalism. The United States and Israel will emerge triumphant. And that's just the start.'' --Daniel Pipes, President of the Middle East Forum and Taube Distinguished Visiting Fellow at the Hoover Institution of Stanford University

''Oswald Spengler's
Decline of the West was required reading when I was a college student and David Goldman's contemporary argument should be required reading today.'' --Herb London, President Emeritus of the Hudson Institute

''David Goldman has explored the political implications of demography with rare insight.
How Civilizations Die (and Why Islam Is Dying Too) is a mind expanding peek into the likely political future of our planet.'' --Mary Ann Glendon, Learned Hand Professor of Law, Harvard University --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
