Chapter Summary

Thilo Sarrazin's bestselling diatribe against the Muslim population in Germany, Germany is Doing Away With Itself (2010), has generated opprobrium from the political elite and a mass following among the population at large. Basing his arguments on demographic trans-formations substantiating fears about a reduction of the indigenous population, Sarrazin decries the rising dominance of Muslim migrants in Germany, who purportedly reproduce at a much higher rate than the national average and prey on the country’s shrinking social benefits. At the same time, he limns Germany’s transformation from an industrial society to an information provider and services economy, presaging that this change poses educational, political, social and economic challenges as the native population ages and its industries struggle to surpass global competitors.
