A tale of international espionage, an intellectual biography, and a vivid portrait of the life and times of a brilliant political visionary, Yockey is truly an odyssey through an era. Kerry Bolton, author of numerous works on the ideology and the thinkers of the Right, here traces the twisting steps of Francis Parker Yockey, best remembered for his controversial and seminal work of political philosophy, Imperium.
Drawing on unpublished material as well as years of research and personal contact with numerous individuals close to Yockey, Bolton undertakes the daunting task of placing this mysterious and multifaceted man into his historical context — a turbulent post-war era of continual decline and shifting allegiances.
From Yockey’s youthful activism to his numerous dealings, and disputes, with the most noteworthy figures of the American and European Right; from his wide-ranging voyages across the globe, to his underground work in America; from his enigmatic contacts with foreign powers to his lonely suicide in a California jail cell — and beyond, to his abiding posthumous influence, and the late resurgence of his ideas in sometimes surprising quarters — Yockey: A Fascist Odyssey stands as the most comprehensive biography yet written on this extraordinary man, who dedicated his life, and finally sacrificed it, for the cause of the West.
Yockey: A Fascist Odyssey is edited by John Bruce Leonard, Sam Richardson, and Charles Lyons, and includes a foreword by Tomislav Sunic, author of Titans are in Town, Postmortem Report and Against Democracy and Equality: The European New Right.
