George Hawley is an amazingly productive young political scientist at the University of Alabama. By my count, Making Sense of the Alt-Right is his fifth book in four years. Last year, I reviewed his Right-Wing Critics of American Conservatism, for which I had high praise, although I complained that he had not dealt with populism, which was the animating force Trump’s ongoing rise to the White House.
It turns out that Hawley’s next project was a whole book on Trump and populism. But he was persuaded to set it aside to focus simply on the Alternative Right. Given Hawley’s meticulous research in Right-Wing Critics of American Conservatism on paleoconservatism, the European New Right, and American White Nationalism, he was the perfect man for the job.

A talk by Paul Kingsnorth at Tor House, Carmel, former home of poet Robinson Jeffers, on the poets’ work and the world today. August 2017

Former deputy editor of The Ecologist, Kingsnorth is co-founder of The Dark Mountain Project, a network of writers, artists, and thinkers who have stopped believing the stories our civilization tells itself and are in search of new paradigms for a world on the brink. Kingsnorth has supplied this need with poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. In his latest collection of essays, Confessions of a Recovering Environmentalist, he discusses the disillusion that drove him from goals such as sustainability to a radical “dark ecology,” dedicated to preserving the wild for its own sake. As envisioned in his new novel, Beast, a sequel of sorts to his Man Booker-longlisted The Wake, the wild is an empty moor in the west of England. Edward Buckmaster, undergoing an acute existential crisis, is distracted from his internal demons by the realization that he’s being stalked by some kind of animal he never quite catches sight of.
