Traders and Heroes by Werner Sombart

Traders and Heroes … belongs to this second, culturally pessimistic phase of Sombart’s thinking. It is dedicated to the “young heroes, out there facing the enemy”. German nationalism and veneration for the state are treated therein as an antidote to the rampant commercial spirit espoused by England. “All Great Wars”, Sombart opines, “are religious Wars”. Ideals rather than economic interests drove German statecraft, in his estimation.

The Perversion of Normality by Kerry Bolton

Kerry Bolton’s The Perversion of Normality is a comprehensive, well-written, and well-referenced exploration of the concerted and multifaceted attack on Western social, moral, and cultural mores. In terms of breath of subject matter discussed, I can think of no significant rival text, with my only proviso being that the book represents a kind of introductory guidebook for many of the topics and will therefore require supplementary reading (e.g., the writers at TOO) for a deep grasp of any of the matters under discussion.

Giuseppe by Piero San Giorgio

Giuseppe: A Survival Story reads like an autobiography. We are given the fictionalized firsthand account of Italy for much of the first half of the 20th century. We travel with Giuseppe from his home in Pontestura to his service in the military, first in Greece, then akin to a conscripted slave, in Germany. We see through his eyes the rise of Fascism and the ascension of Benito Mussolini. Giuseppe conveys not an academic interpretation from a detached bias; but, rather, his are the observations of an everyday Italian concerned about living standards. … Giuseppe: A Survival Story is a fascinating epic akin to the great works of World War II literature. The novel is a reminder of the terrible costs of war.

The Theory of a Multipolar World by Alexander Dugin

The Theory of a Multipolar World, is incredibly subversive in the best sense of the term. Dugin uses the logic of postmodernism against its own advocates, pointing out how appeals to the values of Western modernity such as “human rights”, “democracy”, and “equality” by postmodernists, critical theorists and other professional critics of Western Civilization ultimately prove that – despite their pretence to critique and deconstruction – these would be iconoclasts still find themselves trapped within the moral discourse of Western liberal modernity, a thoroughly bourgeois discourse.
