Suleiman the I probably knew of other monarchs and celebrities we might recognize: Ferdinand and Isabella II of Aragon; King Henry VIII and his infamous trail of wives; and Charles the V, the Holy Roman emperor who dressed in black for the majority of his life.

During his reign Suleiman the Magnificent guided the Ottoman Empire through its golden age of trade and expansion. His reign changed the face of the world and the lives of millions of people, and his name echoes down to us in the present day. Suleiman the Magnificent wasn’t quite like any other sultan before or after him. This book explains why.

  • The World Before Suleiman I

Radical Coup: A Case for Reaction

by Sean Gabb

From the Foreword by Hans-Hermann Hoppe:

Gabb provides detailed analyses of many issues currently hotly debated both in and outside of libertarian circles all across the Western world, and assesses their role and impetus in the process of social change. Thus, the reader will find many valuable, historically informed insights regarding the issues of “free” (mass) immigration vs. controlled borders, multiculturalism vs. cultural homogeneity, secession vs. centralization, of left-libertarianism and the new, Alternative Right, and of Christian and Islamic culture.

Most importantly especially for libertarians and, as I should confess, much in line with what I have tried to accomplish for quite some time with my own writings, in reaction to the diagnosed diseaseâ??the Radical Coupâ??Gabb proposes a detailed, equally radical cureâ??his Case for Reactionâ??that envisions a programmatic alignment of traditional conservatism and libertarianism with the common goal of restoring a bourgeois society as the highest achievement of Western civilization.

This book is an update of Gabb’s Cultural Revolution, Culture War, first published in 2007 to general acclaim by conservatives, libertarians, nationalists and anarchists. This is the book that introduced the concepts of Cultural Marxism and Frankfurt School subversion to the English Right, single-handedly, and within a few weeks, transforming the language of analysis and action on the British political right.

The present volume contains the whole original text of Cultural Revolution, Culture War, but now includes a set of further examinations that extend and adapt the analysis, plus an Introduction that summarises Gabb’s analysis of what has happened in England and of the steps that need to be taken if English Civilisation is to be restored to health.

Briefly put, his central thesis is that the British ruling class has, since at least 1997, turned itself into a totalitarian conspiracy, at war both with liberty and with tradition. It fights this war through the conventional means of state power and state propaganda, but also through its achievement of cultural hegemony. Controlling a single plot line of Eastenders is more important than a thousand editorials in The Guardian. Gabb advances this argument by taking the insights of the neo-Marxistsâ??for example, Antonio Gramsci, Louis Althusser, Michel Foucault, and others, and turning these on an Establishment that is now founded on them.

Turning from diagnosis to cure, the only response for non-leftists is to settle their differences, and then to seize control of the State and to shut most of it down. The present ruling class all sucks from the nipple of the State. Stop the flow of milk, and the ruling class will collapse. Once this is done, Gabb sets out a challenging agenda of libertarian minimal statismâ??for all the usual libertarian reasons, but also because that is the only option at present for conservatives and the various kinds of nationalist.

This book is key to any understanding of rightist discourse in modern England. It is a must-read for activists of all persuasions, for political scientists who want to understand “the Right” as seen by one of its insiders, and for anyone who wants to understand the world in order to change it.
