About The Enemy of Europe
Powerful people tried to stop you from reading this book.
Francis Parker Yockey’s The Enemy of Europe narrowly escaped total destruction. Published in 1953 in West Germany, The Enemy of Europe argued that Europeans should regard the United States, not the Soviet Union, as their greater enemy in the Cold War. West Germany’s liberal democratic regime banned the book and destroyed every copy that came into its hands. Only a few copies of Yockey’s German translation survived.
This new edition completes The Enemy of Europe’s return from the ashes. It includes the first complete English version of The Enemy of Europe, reverse translated from the German edition by Thomas Francis and F. Roger Devlin. Also included is Yockey’s German translation, fully corrected and annotated, with its own index. Yockey biographer Kerry Bolton’s extensive Introduction places The Enemy of Europe in its Cold War context.
The Enemy of Europe is an indispensable volume for understanding America’s most important anti-liberal thinker.

About the Contributors
Francis Parker Yockey (1917–1960) is one of America’s foremost anti-liberal thinkers. Yockey studied at Georgetown University, De Paul Law School, and Notre Dame Law School, where he received his degree in law cum laude in 1941. In addition to The Enemy of Europe, Yockey is the author of Imperium: The Philosophy of History and Politics (2 vols., 1948) and The Proclamation of London (1949). But Yockey was not just a political theorist. He was a political actor. In 1948, he founded the European Liberation Front. His ultimate aim was a unified Europe, free to pursue its destiny without the domination of outside powers. Using a bewildering array of fake passports and identities, Yockey traveled the world building alliances with National Socialists, fascists, Arab nationalists, Marxists, and Third World liberation movements. He committed suicide on the night of June 16–17, 1960, in the San Francisco Jail, where he was being held on charges of passport fraud.
