About the Contributors

Francis Parker Yockey (1917–1960) was born in Chicago. After studying at the University of Michigan, Georgetown University, and the University of Arizona, he graduated cum laude from the University of Notre Dame Law School in 1941. In 1946, Yockey worked as an attorney for the Nuremberg Trials in Germany. In 1948, Yockey published Imperium: The Philosophy of History and Politics (2 vols.) under the pen name Ulick Varange. In 1949, Yockey published a manifesto, The Proclamation of London. In 1953, he published The Enemy of Europe. But Yockey was not just a political theorist. He was a political actor. For the remainder of his life, Yockey traveled the world, using a bewildering array of passports and fake identities, building a network of contacts with National Socialist exiles, Arab nationalists, Marxists, and Third World liberation movements. His ultimate aim was a unified Europe, free to pursue its destiny without the domination of outside powers. He committed suicide on June 16, 1960 in the San Francisco Jail, where he was being held on charges of passport fraud. Since his death, Yockey has been recognized as America’s foremost anti-liberal thinker and exerts a steady and growing influence on the New Right.

K. R. Bolton holds Doctorates in Theology and a Ph.D. h.c. His books include Revolution from Above (London: Arktos Media, 2011), Artists of the Right (San Francisco: Counter-Currents, 2012), Stalin: The Enduring Legacy (London: Black House Publishing, 2012), The Parihaka Cult (London: Black House Publishing, 2012), The Psychotic Left (London: Black House Publishing, 2013), The Banking Swindle: Money Creation and the State (London: Black House Publishing, 2013), Babel Inc.: Multicultralism, Globalisation, and the New World Order (London: Black House Publishing, 2014), Perón and Perónism (London: Black House Publishing, 2014), Zionism, Islam, and the West (London: Black House Publishing, 2015), and More Artists of the Right (San Francisco: Counter-Currents, 2017). He is the world’s foremost expert on Yockey and the author of a definitive forthcoming biography.

    I placed an order for this book on April 14th (Order #81742) and it still shows as processing. Can you please tell me what is going on and when it will ship out?

      Due to my becoming engaged in other projects, as well as the late adding of additional texts to the volume that were discovered after the original announcement, it’s been delayed, but we expect it to be in print by June. I apologize for this.

    Kerry Bolton deserves a medal for all the work that’s gone into putting this together!

      I did get a commemorative Yockey plate specially created by Charles Krafft which adorns my lounge wall above my desk. John Morgan deserves a medal for the herculean task of contending with my typing errors.

        It would be nice to get an update on the status of this book, though.
        I’ve been waiting for my copy for many months now, and it’s still not clear whether the book has in fact been released or shipped.

        • Posted July 20, 2018 at 4:38 am | Permalink

          The book was delayed because of the discovery of some additional texts that we have been adding to it. We are currently waiting for a copy of the last one that we need so that it can be added. Then the book will be finished shortly thereafter and shipped. We have made several updates about this in recent months, both on the site and in our podcasts.

            According to the latest info I received via mail – on May 4th – the paperback edition would be out in early June, and the hardcover edition would be out in late June. Hence, I expected it to have been printed and shipped by now.

            Now that you mention it, I do now see that you posted an update on June 2nd mentioning a brief delay due to the inclusion of additional material and a request for further missing material. I guess I must have missed it.

            Either way, thanks for the info. I very much appreciate all the work you’re putting into making the most complete edition of Yockey’s shorter writings and I’m really looking forward to receiving my copy in my mailbox in the foreseeable future.
