Runes and the Origins of Writing by Alain de Benoist

Without a doubt, Runes and the Origins of Writing fails to disappoint, and in fact opens up a new front for looking into the history of Europeans and the mystical links between practice and metaphysics that seem to be a hallmark of Indo-European philosophy and its pagan religions. de Benoist writes in a fluid, easily-readable style that includes a high degree of rhetorical devices designed to open up areas for future thinking, making the book seem like a Socratic dialogue composed of questions based on the interpretation of fact more than an argument from selected facts. This opens up the topic and lets it breathe.

Can Life Prevail? by Pentti Linkola

Linkola lives as a model for his own beliefs, having given up his nascent biology career in favor of making a living as a fisherman. As of the English publication of Can Life Prevail?, he eschews all modern technology save for a cell phone. His lifestyle is a deep ecologist’s daydream. No mainstream environmentalist will admit to supporting his work, but he gives voice to a thought that has crossed every green’s mind at some point: Wouldn’t things be better if there were far fewer of us?

Homo Americanus: Child of the Postmodern Age by Tomislav Sunic

I also think that Sunic strikes the proper balance, and indeed far better than most of the European New Right, by stressing both the newness and antiquity of the American policies and attitudes under discussion. Instead of dumping on the Protestant, moralistic culture out of which America grew as a nation, Sunic believes that culture had its strengths before it became secularized and corrupted.

Ethnos and Society by Alexander Dugin

Dugin’s study is a gold mine. His dialectic approach and comprehensive knowledge make it a fun and useful read, but the book also contains several crucial insights and perspectives that can be used to understand and change our time. (Translated)

The Real Right Returns by Daniel Friberg

One does not even need to get beyond the cover to have one’s thinking processes activated. The adage, “one cannot tell a book by its cover”, is not quite correct in this instance. The cover art is a clever juxtaposition of a conservative looking white, middle aged male in a business suit with a fleur-de-lis lapel pin. In the background a city is engulfed in flames. The “conservative” looks ahead, not behind, as the “old” (that is, “modern”) world falls.

Putin vs Putin: Vladimir Putin Viewed from the Right by Alexander Dugin

Dugin makes it clear that he supports Putin not only as the most suitable leader in Russia, but also because he is closest to the authentic state man in the world at the moment. … [I]n his view, Putin is currently the best leader in Russia, but Putin also has some shortcomings. For this reason, the title of the book is Putin vs Putin: it depicts two sides of a man who strives to balance in the arenas of internal and foreign policy, while maintaining Russia’s sovereignty, but without a more precise ideological basis.

Ethnos and Society by Alexander Dugin

Ethnos and Society is an introduction to a new discipline which Dugin calls “Ethnosociology”. In fact, this is not a new discipline, as the author admits, just as the Fourth Political Theory is not in fact a new political outlook—rather, it is a reorientation of existing disciplines by shifting focus. Ethnosociology is at its heart merely Anthropology which assumes certain rules about human society.
