Francis Parker Yockey at 100

[1]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:

About Yockey:

Yockey’s magnum opus, Imperium: The Philosophy of History and Politics [43], is back in print with an Introduction by Dr. Kerry Bolton.

Yockey’s The Enemy of Europe [44] 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 [45] 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 [46], 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 [47] for help in tracking down Yockey’s lost writings and related materials. If you can help, please contact me at [email protected] [48].
