Amazon's Top Ten for Dugin Fans has just sent me a reading list of books that its systems think a reader of Alexander Dugin might like:
  1. Alexander Dugin, The Fourth Political Theory
  2. Alexander Dugin, Eurasian Mission: An Introduction to Neo-Eurasianism
  3. Alexander Dugin, Last War of the World-Island: The Geopolitics of Contemporary Russia
  4. James Heiser, "The American Empire Should Be Destroyed": Aleksandr Dugin and the Perils of Immanentized Eschatology
  5. Alexander Dugin, Putin vs Putin: Vladimir Putin Viewed from the Right
  6. Guillaume Faye, Archeofuturism: European Visions of the Post-Catastrophic Age 
  7. Daniel Friberg, The Real Right Returns: A Handbook for the True Opposition 
  8. Tomislav Sunić, Against Democracy and Equality: The European New Right 
  9. Julius Evola, Fascism Viewed from the Right
  10. Gregory Hood, Waking Up from the American Dream 
Heiser's book is a thorough account of Dugin's life and thought. It stresses how important Traditionalism is for Dugin. The other authors (apart from Evola) are all from the European New Right, with only one American, Hood, who comes last on the list, in tenth position. Dugin in the US remains associated more with the European New Right than with the American Alt-Right, it seems.

Faye is the second most important writer in the French New Right after Alain de Benoist, differing from Benoist especially in his view of Islam, which he sees as a major threat to European civilisation. Archeofuturism is one of his most important books. Sunić is a former Yugoslav dissident, now a Croatian, also identified with the French New Right. Friberg is notable because he is not French but Swedish, and comes from a new generation (he was born in 1978). He is a widely read New Right author, and shares Faye's understanding of Islam as enemy. Hood is also from a new generation (born 1980); he is an American White Nationalist and Alt-Right figure.

Thank you, Well.
I wish to thank also Mr. Sedgwick for his great book, which I am reading now. It sheds light on a very important matter. It's a pitty that is not translated to Spanish.
