This essay addresses how the collapse of the Soviet Union and the conditions of social, political, and economic precarity that followed gave rise to intertwining strands of global New Right thought. Taking up the Russian Right's revanchist-revolutionary vision of neo-Eurasianism and its attendant imaginary of a white Eurasian statehood comparatively in relation to US and Hungarian New Right thought, the essay exposes how the neotraditionalist (Trad right) generated a global political and intellectual project in counterpoint to the failed leftist internationalist projects of the twentieth century. The essay closes with a postscript reflection on how the invasion of Ukraine constitutes a major step toward the Trad right's reclaiming of a “multipolar” New Right world order.
