Product description


"A powerful and rigorously researched exploration of how demographic change is transforming western societies and politics. Rejecting extreme nationalism and extreme liberal individualism alike, Kaufmann uses a wealth of empirical data to carve out a space for a multivocal and flexible political system that recognizes ethnic identities without sacrificing liberal values of freedom and tolerance. Whether or not you end up agreeing with it, this is a book that speaks to the most urgent and difficult issues of our time."--John Gray "author of Seven Types of Atheism "

"A magisterial survey of the most important political trend of the 21st century so far. It will be controversial--but mostly with those who dislike evidence, are horrified by open mindedness, and who find it convenient to ignore truth. It should be required reading for today's rulers; they may not like it, but they need to understand Kaufmann's defense of democracy before it's too late." --Trevor Phillips "founding chairman of the Equality and Human Rights Commission "

"Whiteshift is a big, brilliant, ambitious book--perhaps the first truly definitive book of the Trump era. Meticulous, challenging, and provocative, this is the rare book that takes it upon itself to try to shift our entire way of thinking on the most difficult question of our time--inevitable demographic and ethnic change in the United States and Europe."--Shadi Hamid "Senior Fellow, Brookings Institution and author of Islamic Exceptionalism "

"Extraordinary. . . a tour de force that could expand the so-called 'Overton window'--the range of what is acceptable to say--on these central issues."--David Goodhart "Sunday Times "

"Fascinating . . . Kaufmann has done something exceedingly rare among center-right thinkers, which is to write an intelligent, challenging, and in its own way, brave book about race and identity; one not meant to fire up partisans but to make an honest attempt to understand our present dilemmas and propose a solution. . . . Whiteshift is the best diagnosis of populism the right has to offer, and presents compelling arguments that defenders of asymmetric multiculturalism should be prepared to answer."--New York Magazine

"Kaufmann's explosive claim is that it is not enough to blame a resurgent racism for today's populist revolts. . . . [He] redefines whiteness as a Western cultural norm, rather than a racial categorization. . . . Kaufmann has done a service in assembling the facts about present inter-ethnic relations in the West."--Los Angeles Review of Books

"Tightly argued . . . empirically careful . . . conceptually precise . . . the book is in many ways a model of scholarship on right-wing populism. . . . Whiteshift's clarity about the ultimate implications of anti-political correctness politics is, second to the statistical analyses, its core virtue."--Vox

"Although it has a marked point of view, this is a data-driven work, informed by public opinion studies and theoretical insights from psychology, philosophy, and anthropology. . . . Whiteshift is likely to make a big splash and certain to appeal to quantitatively inclined centrists and conservatives longing for an academic defender."--Publishers Weekly

"Whiteshift is an extremely ambitious book . . . intelligible for anyone who has been following American politics . . . [Eric Kaufmann] marshals a vast and convincing body of research . . . Kaufmann's case that rising white anxiety is an urgent political problem seems almost unassailable. . . . Kaufmann's book is valuable for its breadth, for its clear analysis of often-confused issues, and for its asseveration of the stakes of politics in an era of demographic change"--National Review

"Might [Whiteshift] be the must-read book of the year? . . . informative, fascinating, and relevant on just about every page. . . . On top of all of its other virtues, Whiteshift provides the best intellectual history of the immigration debates I have seen."--Tyler Cowen "Marginal Revolution "

Book Description
