Six Essential Works on White Nationalism

3863542655638 words

A reader asked me to compile lists of essential works on White Nationalism, race realism, the Jewish question, the New Right, and other topics. This is the first installment.

White Nationalism is about the creation of racially homogeneous homelands for all white peoples. White Nationalism is, therefore, incompatible with all types of multiracial societies, regardless of whether whites are supreme or subordinate.

1. Jared Taylor, White Identity: Racial Consciousness in the 21st Century (Oakton, Virginia: New Century Foundation, 2011). Read my review here.

2. Sam Francis, Essential Writings on Race, ed. Jared Taylor (Oakton, Virginia: New Century Foundation, 2007).

3. Patrick J. Buchanan, Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025? (New York: Thomas Dunne Books, 2011). Read my review here.

By the definition of White Nationalism offered above, the first three books on this list do not advocate White Nationalism. Instead, Jared Taylor does not talk about solutions and does not like the label “White Nationalist,” preferring the less specific “white advocate.” Sam Francis basically advocated white supremacy. And Patrick Buchanan envisions a meritocratic but normatively white society, i.e., a soft form of white supremacism. These books are included here, however, because they offer facts and arguments sufficient to establish White Nationalist conclusions, even of the authors don’t want to go there.

4. Michael O’Meara, Toward the White Republic (San Francisco: Counter-Currents, 2010).

5. David Duke, My Awakening: A Path to Racial Understanding (Covington, Louisiana: Free Speech Press, 1998).

6. Wilmot Robertson, The Dispossessed Majority, fourth edition (Cape Canaveral, Florida: Howard Allen, 1996).

The last three books listed here are by White Nationalists, although O’Meara’s book is actually the only one that argues for that conclusion. Duke and Robertson do, however, provide essential premises. (Robertson’s The Ethnostate [Cape Canaveral, Florida: Howard Allen, 1992] argues for explicit White Nationalism.)

The fact that five out of six of these books are not actually about White Nationalism, but simply provide elements of a case for White Nationalism, while the sixth (O’Meara) was taken out of print by its author, underscores the need for a simple and compelling case for White Nationalism. Fortunately, two books are forthcoming from Counter-Currents that fit that description: Gregory Hood’s Waking Up From the American Dream and my The White Nationalist Manifesto.

If you think these projects are important, please make a donation to Counter-Currents today. If saving the white race were a profit-making enterprise, we would have had an ethnostate a long time ago. Our efforts depend on your generosity.

If you want to send a non-tax deductible donation to Counter-Currents Publishing, you can make two different types of donations:

  • A single donation of any size.
  • A recurring donation of any size.

Recurring donations are particularly helpful, since they allow us better to predict and plan for the future. We have several levels for recurring donations. Please visit our Donations page for more information.

The Counter-Currents Foundation is a US 501c3 educational corporation. Donations to it are deductible from US federal income taxes. The purpose of the Counter-Currents Foundation is specifically to promote scholarship and translations connected to the European New Right and allied movements.

    I would hope that Convington and some of his Northwest novels could be included in this list. While some disagree with his picking the Northwest, the AFFH rules at HUD (predicted by Covington) are going to start to break up White enclaves this year.

    7. Which Way Western Man? by William Gayley Simpson

      This. Which Way Western Man: To destruction or the Ethnostate? is basically the longer title. The definitive white nationalist book has already been written.

    How do you feel about George Lincoln Rockwell’s “White Power”? I’ve always thought it was a short, easy to grasp introduction packed with examples and airtight logic. Great as an introduction to WN thought.

    Did Robertson take his own book out of print? Why?

    • Greg Johnson

      Robertson died. O’Meara took his book out of print.

        Sort of begs the question, no? O’Meara was a brilliant writer who suddenly disappeared, I can`t be the only one wondering what happened.

          He wasn’t really communicative, but my impression is that he was carrying around a great deal of personal bitterness toward “the movement.”

            Thanks for the answer. Too bad if the trolls got to him, I still re-read his essays from time to time, he had an unique perspective on things that was much needed.

            It wasn’t just trolls. Things took a turn for the worse due to the extremely dishonorable way that Sam Dickson and John Gardner of the Charles Martel Society treated him in 2010, cutting off a stipend they had promised him, which put him in desperate financial straits. But don’t just listen to my side of this. You should ask Sam Dickson about it when you see him at the next Am Ren or NPI conference.

            That is too bad. I learned much from what he has to say. The first essay of his I read was “The Holocaust of America” in the Occidental Quarterly, maybe 10 years ago.

        Probably really dumb question, but when you say that O’Meara’s Toward the White Republic was “taken out of print”, what does that mean? CC can no longer manufacture and sell new copies of it? Or it literally can no longer be sold?

        I wish I’d bought a copy.

        Also, TDM is still in print through Kevin MacDonald’s Occidental Observer. My copy dates from the late 80s.

        Some other books for “building the case for WN” would be:

        Brent Nelson, AMERICA BALKANIZED

        Peter Brimelow, ALIEN NATION (shockingly sober and realistic for a “mainstream” book)

        Roger Pearson, HEREDITY AND HUMANITY

        Philippe Rushton, RACE, EVOLUTION and BEHAVIOR

        Michael Levin, WHY RACE MATTERS

        and of course:

        Frank Salter, ON GENETIC INTERESTS

        Kevin MacDonald’s trilogy on the Jews

        Am sure the CC community is familiar with these titles. But for white race patriots, they are all well-worth reading.

        I strongly agree with the need to have an entire library of titles the sum of which would lead an open-minded white person of reasonably high IQ to what I call the “anti-diversitarian” position (and I appreciate CC’s resurrection of so many WN classics, along with alerting us to European nationalist titles and thought). Might I suggest that this is something that could be “crowd-sourced”?

          We are no longer printing the book. I am sure there are used copies floating around out there.
