Benjamin Teitelbaum is a professor at the University of Colorado Boulder. His first book, Lions of the North was widely reviewed and critically acclaimed. He has published opinion pieces in Foreign Policy, the Wall Street Journal, the Los Angeles Review of Books, and the Atlantic, as well as multiple op-eds in the New York Times, all of them dealing with far-right politics and activism.
All politics are now internationalized, and it is impossible to understand one country's internal dynamics without that recognition. In his new book, Benjamin Teitelbaum's examination of three critical figures shaping the global right in three vital countries -- the U.S., Russia and Brazil -- is such an indispensable text not only for understanding those nations but also some of the most profound and tumultuous political shifts defining societies on every continent -- Glen Greenwald A major new book on contemporary Traditionalism...based on thorough research...required reading -- Mark Sedgwick A must read -- Halli Casser-Jayne Very, very interesting indeed -- Freddy Gray * The Spectator * This is a most alarming book, with a terrible, pertinent relevance...a book to make us tremble...Given the complexity of the subject, it is surprisingly easy to read -- Julia Langdon * The Tablet * A fascinating book ... informed, engaging and insightful * Irish Times * Timely, insightful and often troubling. . . War for Eternity is predominantly an attempt to understand the ideology of Bannon and other important alt-right figures. . . Teitelbaum enjoys remarkable access to them and uses his background research into the contemporary far right to fill in the gaps, draw connections and explain the bigger picture -- Kieran Pender * Literary Review * Insightful and immersive. . . Teitelbaum argues that Bannon's rise, alongside counterparts in countries such as Brazil and Russia, can be traced to an obscure intellectual current that you have never heard of. . . If you are interested in exploring the intellectual traditions that underpin today's populist revolt, this is a useful place to start -- Mathew Goodwin * The Sunday Times *
