The Anti-Capitalist Radical Right-Wing w/ Mark Sedgwick

Kirk Meighoo published on

This is an excerpt of an interview I did for the New Books Network with Mark Sedgwick on his book "Key Thinkers of the Radical Right".

Mark Sedgwick is a British historian specialising in the study of traditionalism, Islam, Sufi mysticism, and terrorism. He is Professor of Arab and Islamic Studies at Aarhus University in Denmark and chair of the Nordic Society for Middle Eastern Studies. He was formerly secretary of the European Society for the Study of Western Esotericism.

In this clip we discuss how he accidentally got interested in the topic from his field research into Western Sufism in Italy, and how he discovered this Radical Right, which is quite distinctive from the mainstream (pro-capitalist) right-wing.

Apologies for the audio quality on the guest's side. It was beyond our control.
