About The Book

The false dialectic of capital and communism, right and left, has for decades veiled from thinking people the possibility of grasping that what happened after 1945 was not only the collapse of the final phase of Christian culture but the rise of a syncretic pseudo-culture, grafted onto the ruins of the old. A Juden-kultur disguised as the previous model but replacing it with a set of new values and expressions whose unique driving force was the thrust of the market economy in its moments of expansion.

Breaking new ground in Oedipus and Dionysus, the author deconstructs the Oedipal legend to offer a way out.

About The Author

Scottish-born author Ian Dallas trained at RADA in London and attended the University of London. He became a contracted playwright for the BBC and worked in film with Federico Fellini. He later entered Islam, writing the seminal novel ‘The Book of Strangers’ based on his experience.

His writings cover diverse subjects such as classical music and its politics (‘The New Wagnerian’), twentieth-century history (‘The Ten Symphonies of Gorka Konig’), chivalry in Tudor England (‘The Interim is Mine’), Roman politics (‘The Engines of the Broken World’), and the inception of modern democracy in the French Revolution (‘The Time of the Bedouin’).

Under his Muslim name, Shaykh Abdalqadir as-Sufi, he publishes works on Islam and is the intellectual and spiritual mentor to a large and influential community of Muslims in various parts of the world.
