Kreb's book is not a quick read as his style is drily scholarly, with bursts of poignant rhetoric.
Kreb's eloquently debunks the modern religions of "anti-racism", as being highly racist, and unlimited economic growth, as reducing people to just cogs. He is also very anti-American, Americanism as typified by a cosmopolitan society based on an abstract political ideal and a "melting pot" social model that is being pushed to unnatural levels (e.g. all differences between peoples being glossed over in the name of an abstract, "kumbaya", ideal).
This book is a good introduction to the Identitarian movement. Read with Guillaume Faye's Why We Fight and Patrick Buchanan's Death of the West, one can come to understand this very important movement that could save Europe before it is too late.
This book written by Pierre Krebs is lucid yet accessible. To accomplish this a subject matter expert must possess not only depth and width within his/her domain but also be well-versed in communicating key ideas to non-experts. Krebs accomplishes this very convincingly.
Furthermore, the consistency of the text reveals that the translator Alexander Jacob has done a meticulous job in translating the book to English.
In summary, a high-quality piece of work that was hard to stop reading once started and that provides the reader an excellent vantage point for further exploration into the references supplied in the extensive reference list.
Compared to Alexander Dugin's book "The fourth political theory", which presents an emerging ideology that correlates well with the identitarian movement, Dugin's book is meta-ideological and inductive while Krebs' book is anchored in past and contemporary events with Heidegger serving as an important influence. Both books are highly readable while Krebs' book is more accessible.
The book begins with an analysis of how we arrived at today situation, where an increasing number of Europeans have had enough of European Union micro management and feel increasingly awkward finding themselves being transitioned into a global community of rootlesss and soulless consumers. Nihilism is the state of today with cultural marxism being a driver that threatens to annihilate the regional variations found across Europe.Read more ›
