Joakim Andersen: Rising from the Ruins

The Right of the 21st Century

Arktos, 2018

Publisher’s Presentation:

AndersenThe liberal order that defined the latter half of the 20th century is collapsing under the growing weight of its conflicts and contradictions. It threatens to pull European civilization and the peoples who created it with it in its fall. This is no time for liberal reformism; the present moment is a Gordian knot of urgent crises. A significant part of our civilization lies already in ruins, if not always physically. Even so, there is reason for optimism: a number of challengers to the crumbling liberal order have appeared.

This book is both a depiction of the rubbled landscape surrounding us, and an overview of the challengers who are rising from the ruins. Touching on everything from the Italian CasaPound, Alexander Dugin and the Danish Tidehverv, to the New Right, the American Alt-Right and Donald Trump, this book analyzes the key success and risk factors of those men and movements that might lead our civilization and our peoples to create a new historical order.
