The organizations and institutions that, in a traditional civilization and society, would have allowed an individual to realize himself completely, to defend the principal values he recognizes as his own, and to structure his life in a clear and unambiguous way, no longer exist in the contemporary world. Everything that has come to predominate in the modern world is the direct antithesis of the world of Tradition, in which a society is ruled by principles that transcend the merely human and transitory. Ride the Tigerpresents an implacable criticism of the idols, structures, theories, and illusions of our dissolute age examined in the light of the inner teachings of indestructible Tradition. Evola identifies the type of human capable of "riding the tiger," who may transform destructive processes into inner liberation. He offers hope for those who wish to reembrace Tradition.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Evola rises above the usual dichotomies of left and right, liberal and conservative, challenging us to reconnect our lives and our institutions to the timeless spiritual standard that guided our ancestors." * Glenn A. Magee, author of Hegel and the Hermetic Tradition *
"Ride the Tiger offers a practical view of how to be truly awakened in a dark age." * Robert Burns, New Dawn, Sept-Oct 2005 *
". . . this is an important work for an intellectual history of the twentieth century. . ." * The Journal of Esoterica, July 2006 *
"A dazzling and interesting, but very dangerous author . . ." * Hermann Hesse, author of Siddhartha *
"Simply put, Evola shows, unintentionally but with passion, why European Tradition may not be able to match East Asia in riding the tiger in today's world. It lacks a spirituality for today's mundane world, tempered by the harsh realism of Daoism and the practical disciplines of Confucianism." * Reg Little, New Dawn, No. 121, Jul/Aug 2010 *
"Evola is one of the most interesting minds of the [world] war generation." * Mircea Eliade, author of The Sacred and the Profane *
"One of the most difficult and ambiguous figures in modern esotericism." * Richard Smoley, in Parabola *
"Evola looks beyond man-made systems to the eternal principles in creation and human society. The truth, as he sees it, is so totally at odds with the present way of thinking that is shocks the modern mind." * John Mitchell, author of The New View Over Atlantis *
"It is one of Evola's greatest merits that he combines a prodigious wealth of erudite detail with the gift of isolating from their local conditioning ideas or disciplines that are of value to us." * Marguerite Yourcenar, author of Memoirs of Hadrian *
