Quotes on the book

"Welf is a voice in the wilderness; a teacher for our times; a maker and a shaper, a bastion of sanity in an increasingly dangerous and unpredictable world" - Troy Southgate, in Introdution.

"Following the steps of great European thinkers, such as Julius Evola and Oswald Spengler (and a recently deceased postmodernist, Jean Baudrillard), Herfurth analyzes the contagious power of political simulacra in our postmodern media-conditioned society." - Tomislav Sunic, in Preface.
