Michael J. Polignano’s
Taking Our Own Side
Foreword by Kevin MacDonald
San Francisco: Counter-Currents, 2010
200 pages
hardcover: $30

“Today’s college graduates emerge zombie-like, mouthing politically correct platitudes they heard from their brilliant professors, mindlessly looking forward to an impossible future of racial harmony where the White minority adapts seamlessly and joyously to life among their non-White brothers. Michael Polignano somehow managed to overcome all that. And what’s really amazing is that he did it while still a college student. . . . Mike Polignano gets it. This is about racial survival. . . . People like Michael Polignano are a rare and courageous breed. We need a lot more like him. And we have to find ways to sup-port them financially as they continue their careers as effective writers and activists on behalf of the White majority of America.”

–Kevin MacDonald, author of The Culture of Critique
and Cultural Insurrections [3]

“Over the years, whenever there’s been a demonstration or activity to support our beleaguered people, I have run into Mike Polignano. In this remarkable collection of essays, I have discovered another Mike: a writer as well as a doer, who eloquently shatters the dogmas of our soft totalitarian system. If, when still an undergraduate, he made the learned doctors and esteemed savants of Emory University look like unlettered fools, the reader can well imagine what awaits him in this, Mike’s first book.”

–Michael O’Meara, author of Toward the White Republic [4]

“This collection of essays demonstrates, rather refreshingly, the comprehensive failure of modern university education in America. It pleases me to imagine Michael Polignano’s Leftist former professors — what one can only imagine to have consisted of a troop of bearded, sandaled, coprocephalous, foaming-at-the-mouth Marxist propagandists, perverts, freaks, weirdos, and pathological albophobes — rending their garments and banging their heads against rough granite walls, tormented, infuriated, and exasperated by their former pupil’s cheerful rejection of the ideology of progress, political correctness, and leveling-down egalitarianism.”

– Alex Kurtagi?, author of Mister

Michael Polignano first came to national attention in 2000 when, as an undergraduate at Emory University, he ignited a storm of controversy by writing in the school newspaper about the scientifically established fact that racial differences are largely genetic.

Taking Our Own Side is a collection of 45 short essays, editorials, reviews, and satires. These lucidly written, carefully reasoned essays are profound, poignant, and occasionally prophetic. They are also sometimes brutally frank and hilariously funny.

Michael Polignano shows how to make the most radical positions seductively reasonable. Taking Our Own Side establishes him as one of the most compelling and versatile writers in the North American New Right.
