The Time of the Bedouin by Ian Dallas : On The Politics of Power

313 pages PB  2006   RSA

In the definitive political statement for the coming century, Dallas analyses the foundational substance of political democracy, revealing at its heart terror and totalitarianism. And there also, wielding substantive power, unelected and largely unknown: the finance and commodities elite.

Drawing on a panoply of European thinkers from Ibsen to Heidegger, Ian Dallas then delineates the coming Nomos. Using the Andalusian jurist and historian Ibn Khaldun’s model of the ‘Bedouin’, he describes the natural political reality which must inevitably emerge as democracy comes to an end: legitimate Personal Rule and real-wealth currency.
