The Indo-Europeans: In Search of the Homeland

Author(s): Alain de Benoist

Research has long since established that the civilisations of Europe, Persia, and India are linked, linguistically and culturally, dating back to some point in prehistory that has been lost to human memory. Many scholars have postulated that there was a primordial Indo-European civilisation from which all of these others later emerged. But who were the Indo-Europeans? From where did they originate? How did they live, and what did they believe? And how and why did they disperse into so many widely varied cultures? Alain de Benoist here gives a brief overview of the history of Indo-European studies, showing how it has evolved from its origins in the nineteenth century up to the present, and summarises the various interpretations and schools of thought that have emerged from the surviving evidence. He also offers his own critique of some of these theories. The Indo-Europeans: In Search of the Homeland is an invaluable introduction to a vast field of inquiry, and offers valuable clues and insights into the origins of our civilisation.

Alain de Benoist is the leading philosopher behind the European ‘New Right’ movement (a label which Benoist himself rejects, perceiving himself as falling outside the usual Left/Right dichotomy), a metapolitical school of thought which he helped to found in France in 1968 with the establishment of GRECE (Research and Study Group for European Civilisation). He continues to write and give lectures and interviews. He lives in Paris. Arktos has previously published his books The Problem of Democracy (2011), Beyond Human Rights (2011), Carl Schmitt Today (2013), and On the Brink of the Abyss (2015).
