Francis Parker Yockey at 100

474 words

Francis Parker Yockey was born 100 years ago today, September 18, 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
  • “America’s Two Ways of Waging War,” here
  • “Culture” (December 1953), here
  • “The Destiny of America,” here
  • “From the Notebooks,” 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
  • “Thoughts Personal and Superpersonal (Excerpts),” here
  • “Thoughts Personal and Superpersonal: Knowledge and Skepticism,” here
  • “Thoughts Personal and Superpersonal: On Money,” here
  • “Thoughts Personal and Superpersonal: Prussianism and Americanism,” here
  • “Twentieth-Century Metaphysics,” here
  • “Two Reflections,” here
  • “The World in Flames,” here

  • Ted Sallis, “Pan-European Preservationism,” here
  • Keith Stimley, Interview with H. Keith Thompson on Francis Parker Yockey, here

Yockey’s magnum opus, Imperium: The Philosophy of History and Politics, is back in print with an Introduction by Dr. Kerry Bolton.

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 new 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.

Fortunately, Dr. Kerry Bolton is now working on a new biography of Yockey, which promises to be the definitive treatment. We have published a crowd-sourcing appeal for help in tracking down Yockey’s lost writings and related materials. If you can help, please contact me at [email protected].

    I’ll be visiting some friends in Yockey’s hometown of Ludington, MI this weekend. I’m going to attempt to locate his family’s home. Might be tough as I can’t imagine that there is a nice plaque marking the residence as a historical site lol. Assuming the house still stands, I bet the current residents have no clue who FPY is/was.

    Reading an old copy of Imperium in my late teens was my wake-up. At the time I thought it was a gem of a find, and rereading it since, my opinion hasn’t changed. Thank you for remembering Francis Yockey.
