This chapter starts with the discovery of Traditionalism by a group of Soviet dissidents including Gaydar Jamal (1947– ) and Alexander Dugin, and considers Jamal’s and Dugin’s first involvement in Russian politics during perestroika. After explaining the contribution of Traditionalism to Dugin’s ideology of Neo-Eurasianism, the chapter discusses Dugin’s political ventures. While Dugin was active in the (not very serious) National Bolshevik Party that he founded with Edward Limonov, his Neo-Eurasianism cemented the “red-to-brown” alliance between the remains of the Communist Party and the Extreme Right “Patriots.” Dugin then founded a potentially more important group, the Eurasia Movement, a Kremlin-aligned think tank. The chapter ends with a discussion of Neo-Eurasianism in Israel among settlers in Hebron.

Keywords:   Soviet dissidents, Dugin, Eurasianism, Extreme Right, Limonov, Hebron settlers
