    In this work A Dugin advances and develops the typology of Eternal Rome vs Eternal Carthage land empires against sea mercantile empires So his thesis Russia cannot be interpreted apart from the Russian land Dugin loc 128 From this he deduces a Geopolitical theorem “the geopolitical system depends on the position of the observer and interpreter” loc 147 All observers are already embedded in a contextRussian geopolitician geopolitics of the heartland Russia is going to be a “civilization of Land” Of course this is the typology of Eternal Rome vs Eternal CarthageAtlantis This ties in with Dugin’s thesis we are always already observers Russia therefore will observe itself from a certain perspective a land based perspectiveDugin extends the analysis a step further Russia as Land Civilization means its gradual becoming in history will ultimately be on a planetary scale loc 188 It is a “continental Rome” Unfortunately this means it will be drawn into conflict with “CarthageAtlantis” Britain and America As Dugin notes “The fact that Russia is the heartland makes its sovereignty a planetary problem” loc 259He gives the reader a brief treatment of Russian history from the October Revolution to the current day though not including Putin's presence in Syria Readers may chafe at his neutral account of Soviet terror but one supposes it fits his thesis the Soviet Union strengthened Russia's presence as a Land CivilizationThe Politics of YeltsinRetells Chesterton’s narrative of Rome vs Carthage Rome’s defeat of Carthage was the defeat of Moloch Dugin sees the contrary of this happening in 1991 I disagree Rome’s sordid almost dead state was parallel to Yeltsin’s RussiaNew Atlanticist Geo Politics The structure of the bi polar world remained but with one of the poles withdrawn loc 1527ff There was no longer a West East Axis but a “Center Periphery” one Nato was placed at the center of the world and everyone else on the peripheryDugin’s conclusions1 There is a need for an energetic post Putin head of state 27412 Although working for a multipolar world Russia must have global ambitions to thwart AtlantisCritical of PutinSome say Dugin is the brainchild behind Putin This is false Dugin criticizes Putin on a number frontsDugin says Putin should not have allowed US support in Afghanistan as this placed NATO bases on Russia’s border 2144Dugin notes no matter how important Putin’s gains are they are not irreversible and thus they are open to a NATOAtlanticist turn; loc 2741ConclusionThe book was surprisingly good I had heard horror stories about Dugin see the shrill hysteria at National Review but most of his analysis is level headed and familiar territory to Russia readers

    Alexander Dugin is a very controversial figure in Geopolitics but his ideas are not worthless As a werterner I can see the benefits of the liberal world order and how it would be better for everyone to transfer this values as a student this makes perfect sense for Russian geopolitics even though the thought of a etnogenesis for the russian people is in my opinion a little far fetched The comparision between Moscow and Rome is a very interesting approach resembling the conflict between Carthage Impire and Roman Impire It's a very good book to understand russian foreign policy


  3. Omar Hernando Omar Hernando says:

    Dugin provides an unconvincing yet well researched and put together argument for the old russian belief that what's good for the West is bad for Russia


  4. Michael Potts Michael Potts says:

    A very interesting insight into the ambiguity of contemporary Russian geopolitics 1991 2012 and its history from the perspective of Mackinder and Spykman's theories regarding land and sea power


  5. Prof. Mohamed Shareef Prof. Mohamed Shareef says:

    Russia's ambition to rule all Asia and Europe is the theme of this book

    This is an interesting if somewhat self serving view of Carl Schmitt's Nomos from the telluricland perspective Dugin describes how through about a millennium of history Russia has gone through multiple upheavals that have changed its physical geography as well as its conception of itself He sees Russia now imperiled by the AtlanticistsWestern Powers and in as precarious position as Mother Russia ever wasIt is ironic with all of the paranoiac fear mongering about Russia intervening in America that Dugin perceives the US and our leadership at least pre Trump as doing everything in our power to subvert the natural law of the Heartland as he calls Russia which he views as having the right to subsume everything in its orbit for its own good and the good of humanity Russia like any other country has a right to self defense but ifwhen other countries want to break away it has less in Dugin's mind to do with a desire for say Cossack autonomy than with a conspiracy emanating from Washington DCMore disturbing is Dugin's desire for a Eurasian movement similar to the Eurozone an alignment that would do even to trample on particularist cultures than perhaps outright conuest In Dugin's view these lands should apparently just allow themselves to be assimilated into the larger Russian empire for their own good It is unfortunate but possibly true that Russia's options at this point are either to grow in order to head off Western incursions or to collapse from entropic pressure from within the areas of its borders pre collapse of the USSR but I'm reticent to give Dugin or Putin or the neocons too much of the benefit of the doubt when they want to dominate continents in order to save them from their own constituent countriesI have read Dugin's works before like The Fourth Political Theory and it's clear that the man is not only brilliant but that he's one of the few thinkers willing do to some serious extrapolation when it comes to looking at present conditions and seeing what the future might hold I actually think Trump presents less of a threat than Hillary since he isn't apparently trying to precipitate war with Russia and it is possible Neo Ottoman expansionism and assassination of ambassadors may actually draw these two super powers into a a grand alliance That said I found Dugin's reasoning in this book weak and deliberately misleading He sees what he wants to happen not as Realpolitik goals for the most part but as a kind of moral good which makes him a kind of con man who has succeeded in tricking himself and is trying to pull the wool over the reader's eyes as well I'll continue to read him anyway because he's still a good antidote to the connivance of the neocons and assorted meddlerswarmongers arrayed at the other end of the spectrum who are far worse than he is
