Ian Buruma talked about his book Murder in Amsterdam: The Death of Theo van Gogh and the Limits of Tolerance, published by Penguin Press. He read excerpts from his book. Professor Buruma talked about the tension between the Dutch natives and the Muslim immigrants living in the Netherlands, focusing on the 2004 murder of media personality Theo van Gogh. Mr. Van Gogh’s murderer, a Muslim, targeted the outspoken Dutchman because he created a documentary criticizing the treatment of women under Islam. The author used this case to argue against the commonly-held idea that Holland is a very tolerant nation. After his presentation he responded to audience members' questions. close
