INDEX — 469

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.

Kerry 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 biography.

John Morgan was born in New York state, where he was raised, and graduated with a degree in literature from the University of Michigan. He was one of the founders of Integral Tradition Publishing in 2006, and was also a founder of its successor, Arktos Media, in 2010, where he served as Editor-in-Chief until 2016. He has been a writer and editor at Counter-Currents and has contributed to many other publications including New Dawn.
