Francis Parker Yockey was born on this day in 1917 in Chicago. He died in San Francisco on June 16, 1960, an apparent suicide. Yockey is one of America’s greatest anti-liberal thinkers and an abiding influence on the North American New Right. In honor of his birthday, I wish to draw the reader’s attention to the following works on this site.
By Yockey himself:
- “America’s Two Political Factions,” here
- “The Destiny of America,” here
- “The Imperative of Our Age,” here
- “Liberalism,” here
- “The Nature of Politics,” here
- “The Prague Treason Trial,” here
- Selections from Francis Parker Yockey, here
- “Twentieth-Century Metaphysics,” here
- “Two Reflections,” here

- Kerry Bolton, “A Contemporary Evaluation of Francis Parker Yockey,” Part 1, Part 2, Part 3
- Juleigh Howard-Hobson, Six Poems for Francis Parker Yockey, here

Yockey’s magnum opus, Imperium: The Philosophy of History and Politics, is currently out of print, but at least four (!) new editions are in the works from various publishers. It is a high tribute to Yockey’s importance, even as it is a criminal duplication of efforts in a resource-starved movement.
Yockey’s The Enemy of Europe is available paired with Revilo Oliver’s commentary, “The Enemy of Our Enemy.”
Yockey’s manifesto, The Proclamation of London: Of the European Liberation Front is available in a handsome hardcover edition with an Introduction by Michael O’Meara.
Unfortunately, the only existing biography of Yockey is Kevin Coogan’s Dreamer of the Day: Francis Parker Yockey and the Postwar Fascist International, in which Yockey’s biography is buried under hundreds of pages of extraneous details about the history of the entire post-World War II Right.
