When ‘The Great Migration’ began in 2015, over a million Africans and Arabs entered Europe. Many Western European countries welcomed them with open arms, while the countries of Eastern Europe reacted with horror at the prospect of accepting them, as did countries in the Middle East and Far East.

Dutton is a brilliant young researcher who has published some excellent work, of which this book is his latest example. It is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand the reasons behind the apparent suicide of the European peoples. — Prof. Richard Lynn
Edward Dutton has provided a thorough review of the psychometric literature on ethnocentrism. Highly recommend. — Prof. Kevin MacDonald
