The Time of the Bedouin – Ian Dallas

The Time of the Bedouin

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, 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.

    Why is Ibn Khaldun described as an andalusian?

    Good question.
    National identities were much less fixed. Although born in Tunisia, he was, if my memory serves me well, from an old Andalusian family and thus heir of that tradition. I suspect that might be what was meant.
