    An excellent short primer to the major thinkers of the radical right If you have been lulled into thinking that these people are somehow intellectually lacking — a bunch of skinheads and hicks — you would be deeply mistaken Going back at least a century and up til the present day the radical right has produced a steady stream of sophisticated thinkers and advocates To recognize their intelligence does not entail and endorsement of their views even a bit But a few of these people have managed to make very perceptive critiues of the West as presently constructed in its liberal hegemon phase To be able to even see outside of this framework is a minor accomplishment promoted as it is by all the major institutions of societyThe book is a set of very short essays giving introductions to the major figures of this movement I was interested in the contemporary thinkers including Curtis Yarvin Mencius Moldbug Greg Johnson Richard Spencer and even Jared Taylor There are many better analyses of Carl Schmitt and Oswald Spencer out there but this book is valuable and giving an analysis of the present day Each of the introductions is only a few pages long which means that the book is only useful as a way of getting a basic familiarity with the figures in uestion Although they are outside of the mainstream Cathedral today as the subtitle of this book indicates it would be a mistake for liberals to underestimate these people especially now that the barriers to publishing and broadcasting have been lowered to almost nil by the internet

    Kind of a descriptive analytical encyclopedia approach to some of the 'influential' thinkers on the far right new right Each chapters introduces one thinkers and his or her most important concepts and contributions Nothing shockingly new original or very in depth but a very useful thorough introduction to these thinkers A good beginner's guide to get yourself acuainted with some of the influential far right intellectuals

    Surprisingly neutral presentation of this motley crew

    This book undoubtedly has its flaws However I do not count them against this book Each chapter is designed as a brief introduction to the origins political philosophy and aftermath of each “key radical right thinker” Not only is this book interesting especially due to its highlighting of the various intra far right debates and splinters it is also incredibly valuable for the contemporary political climate that we live in where ideas such as these discussed in this book are surfacing from the wave of right wing populism across the West What people really ought to take away is that these people aren’t your typical “conservatives gone polarized” or anything These thinkers aren’t inherently white well they are uber capitalist crazy Christian men Paganism atheism satanism homosexuality and various other things not typically attributed to the right are incredibly common among these men discussed in this book There is a new enemy of liberal democracy and it is one that most liberals are not familiar with at all It would do everybody well to read this book

  5. Peter Green says:

    Very good short summaries of important thinkers from a broad sweep of history While it’s certainly an advantage of this book that it comes to these thinkers charitably and without judgment it can at times make for uncomfortable reading and sometimes even gets in the way of honest criticism My concerns were only strengthened by rumours about Mark Sedgwick’s own acuaintances which I won’t repeat here they are rumours

  6. Teddy Dodger says:

    A collection of trans national examples Russia Germany France Sweden and heterogeneous thought that emphasizes the difference in RR thought as opposed to uniformity Despite the title avoids polemicising until the later chapters I would dispute that Richard Spencer is as influential as the chapter on him suggests but nontheless each essay is thought provoking

    The book took me a while to finish but it was a great pleasure Offering such a useful information about the radical right thinkers Only opposition was adding jack donavan as a key thinker Overall the book is a great start to dig deep in reading about radical right ideas
