Pierre Manent's Spiritual Nationalism

In The American Prospect I reflect on two European responses to Islam: Pierre Manent's peculiar spiritual nationalism and Alternative für Deutschland's "religious racism."

Thanks, Mr. Goldhammer, for pointing me/us in the direction of your piece on Pierre Manent's latest. Reading your summary of his recommendation of a "surrender" to Islam and its moeurs, I couldn't help thinking of the recent stir surrounding M. Houellebecq's "Soumission". Could you perhaps point me/us to anyone who has taken up the possible connections between what MH and PM are recommending as a cure for Europe's alleged spiritual decay, each in his own "novel" form?
