    Dugin, an important Russian political theorist, wrote this book back in 1997; it was very influential at high levels, and, supposedly, used for training in the Russian military's General Staff Academy. His recommendations were aimed at ensuring Russia's supremacy over other geopolitical powers, especially the US, by establishing a ‘Eurasianism’ that counters both the EU and America. Among his recommendations, according to the book's Wikipedia article, were: • France and Germany should be encourage Dugin, an important Russian political theorist, wrote this book back in 1997; it was very influential at high levels, and, supposedly, used for training in the Russian military's General Staff Academy. His recommendations were aimed at ensuring Russia's supremacy over other geopolitical powers, especially the US, by establishing a ‘Eurasianism’ that counters both the EU and America. Among his recommendations, according to the book's Wikipedia article, were: • France and Germany should be encouraged to form a ‘Franco-German bloc’ (because both countries have a ‘firm anti-Atlanticist tradition’) • The UK should be cut off from Europe • Ukraine should be annexed by Russia • Iran is a key ally (the book talks of a ‘Moscow-Tehran axis’) • Georgia should be dismembered. Abkhazia and ‘United Ossetia’ will be incorporated into Russia • Russia needs to create ‘geopolitical shocks’ within Turkey • Russia must spread Anti-Americanism everywhere: ‘the main "scapegoat" will be precisely the U.S.’ • Quoting Wikipedia: ‘Russia should use its special forces within the borders of the United States to fuel instability and separatism. For instance, provoke "Afro-American racists". Russia should "introduce geopolitical disorder into internal American activity, encouraging all kinds of separatism and ethnic, social and racial conflicts, actively supporting all dissident movements – extremist, racist, and sectarian groups, thus destabilizing internal political processes in the U.S. It would also make sense simultaneously to support isolationist tendencies in American politics.’ Pause to take this in. Well. You'd have to say that either these neo-cold-warriors have been very lucky, or they've done an extremely good job. (There's more on Dugin and Eurasianism in this NYRB piece from a couple of years ago.)

    From Wikipedia: "...The Foundations of Geopolitics: The Geopolitical Future of Russia is a geopolitical book by Aleksandr Dugin. The book has had a large influence within the Russian military, police, and foreign policy elites[1] and was allegedly used as a textbook in the General Staff Academy of Russian military.[1] The book declares that "the battle for the world rule of [ethnic] Russians" has not ended and Russia remains "the staging area of a new anti-bourgeois, anti-American revolution."

The book has had a large influence within the Russian military, police, and foreign policy elites[1] and was allegedly used as a textbook in the General Staff Academy of Russian military.[1] The book declares that "the battle for the world rule of [ethnic] Russians" has not ended and Russia remains "the staging area of a new anti-bourgeois, anti-American revolution." The Eurasian Empire will be constructed "on the fundamental principle of the common enemy: the rejection of Atlanticism, strategic control of the USA, and the refusal to allow liberal values to dominate us."[5] Military operations play relatively little role. The textbook believes in a sophisticated program of subversion, destabilization, and disinformation spearheaded by the Russian special services. The operations should be assisted by a tough, hard-headed utilization of Russia's gas, oil, and natural resources to bully and pressure other countries.[5]..." https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Found...

Для людей правого толка, таких как я, свежая рациональная идеология - глоток свежего воздуха в удушливой атмосфере праворадикального христианского угара перемешанного с леворадикальным деконструкционистким и левым мусульманским, однако Дугин пообещав многое, в течении первой трети книги, резко подменивает понятия и ударяется в черносотенный шовинистский империалистический бред, в котором он до этого обвинял всех остальных строителей "Островного/Западного" мира - прочувствовать это помогают такие перлы как "Семья которая рождает ребёнка должна чувствовать что рождает в первую очередь Православного, Континентального Русского ребёнка , а уж потом они могут прививать ему всю местную культуру" "Когда люди Юга пребывают в гармонии с людьми Севера, т.е. признают их авторитет и их типологическое (а не расовое) превосходство, царит цивилизационная гармония."" И так далее, и тому подобное. Дугин откопал труп Гитлера, набил его почвенническими отрубями и чревовещает позорный бред, который в очередной раз лишает РУССКИХ людей своей собственной земли и культуры, не говоря уже об элементарных политических правах и право на собственную жизнь, и пускает их в расход на авантюры дебилов, начиная от Сталина, и кончая Жириновским и Путиным, которым захотелось помыть жопу в Индийском океане. Из-за вот такой ерунды все стоящие люди и не хотят жить ни в России, ни рядом. Чтобы все ваши родственники, дети, если не дай бог они есть, и друзья угорели на пожаре, господин Дугин.

    3 stars - but why? Dugin's ideas are, to those both inside and outside Russia, almost nonsensical. Apocalyptic. Purposefully esoteric. However, many of those criticisms come from reading statements, most of which come from this book, without the necessary context. Statements such as 'Ukraine has no meaningful distinct culture or history, and as such should be incorporated into Russia' (paraphrased) do indeed seem utterly disgusting to many at first. Indeed, even with the context, these ideas are 3 stars - but why? Dugin's ideas are, to those both inside and outside Russia, almost nonsensical. Apocalyptic. Purposefully esoteric.

Statements such as 'Ukraine has no meaningful distinct culture or history, and as such should be incorporated into Russia' (paraphrased) do indeed seem utterly disgusting to many at first. Indeed, even with the context, these ideas are incredibly strange. What one must understand before critiquing Dugin is the angle at which he is coming from. Western society is incredibly ethnocentric, and our general geopolitical outlook is shaped by this. If someone was to call the UK and the US the 'heartland(s) of the world', many of us in Western society would not be shocked or disgusted. Indeed, I suspect the majority of people would be inclined to agree. Dugin's analysis of Russia's geopolitical role are shaped by the fact he is Russian. He is, despite his own denial, an extreme nationalist, and as a nationalist, he believes his country to be supreme. This book is good - not because Dugin's ideas are (quite to the contrary) - but because it gives a very clear insight into his beliefs, and the beliefs of contemporary Russian strategists. Furthermore, the first section of the book (spent on summarising geopolitical theorists, from Kjellen to Haushofer to Spykman) is a surprisingly well-written and comprehensive overview of geopolitical theory.

    Not gonna lie, he kinda had me in the first half... it was an overview of the background of "geopolitics" like you would expect a textbook to be. Sure he included your occasional nazi, but what social science doesn't wind up with a nazi influence of some sort (looking at you Anthropology, Sociology, Political Geography, etc...) but then he went allllll in on some pretty wacky conspiracy theories.

Nevertheless, some of his ideas seem to have clearly been resonating with folks in the Kremlin as election interference, stirring up ethnic strife and national-seperatism in the UK and other countries seems to be being played out before our eyes in the news. The fact there is no authoritative English translation of this book is a major oversight in my opinion. I read it with the help of google translate so I can't be entirely sure that I understood every detail, but I think I got the gist of it, and it's pretty scary.

    Being a translation, the reading was slow. However, the understanding of Russian thought processes more than made up for the slog. Every progressive/Russian apologist should read and understand that it was written 15 years ago. It almost begs the question, which came first - the book’s ideas or the plans that led to the events.

    This book if anything, gives you a perfect understanding of euroasianism. It is the russian strife for survival and beyond. The bulwark against Atlanticism.

    This translation is awful. Obviously machine translated. It's gibberish at many points, not much better than word salad. This translation is awful. Obviously machine translated. It's gibberish at many points, not much better than word salad.
