“This study is a trea­sure cham­ber for all those inter­est­ed in the ide­ol­o­gy of the heirs of fas­cism and Nazism in Europe and Amer­i­ca, of Nation­al bol­she­vism, Odin­ism, var­i­ous occult sects of the extreme right, and the groups which tried to pro­vide a syn­the­sis between the extreme left wing and far-right thought.”

- Wal­ter Laquer, author of The Black Hun­dred: The Rise of the Extreme Right in Rus­sia, and Fas­cism: Past, Present and Future

Book Descrip­tion

Biog­ra­phy. Fran­cis Park­er Yock­ey, a lawyer and for­mer war-crimes pros­e­cu­tor, was one of the most enig­mat­ic fig­ures inside the far right in both Europe and Amer­i­ca. While he is best known today for his book Imperi­um, a huge tome often described as a Mein Kampf for mod­ern-day neo-Nazis, his life remains a mys­tery. Pur­sued by the U.S. gov­ern­ment for almost a decade, Yock­ey was arrest­ed by the FBI in 1960. Short­ly after his cap­ture, he was found dead in his jail cell. An autop­sy showed that the 43-year-old mys­tery man had swal­lowed a cyanide cap­sule. Yock­ey’s sto­ry takes us into the heart of the post­war Fas­cist Inter­na­tion­al, a shad­ow Reich com­posed of spies, con­spir­a­tors, and occultists.

  1. Fas­ci­nat­ing read­ing. Extreme­ly enter­tain­ing, while still being deep and schol­ar­ly. One of those books that you don’t want to put down; and then you real­ize it’s late, and you have to get up the next morn­ing. I’d always been fas­ci­nat­ed with this guy, Yock­ey, but could nev­er find much about him. This book changed all that.

  2. I’m cur­rent­ly read­ing this amaz­ing book. It def­i­nite­ly lives up to the hype. It should be read after Mar­tin A. Lee’s “Beast Reawak­ens.”
