Summer Reading List by Lawrence Murray

Summer Reading List
All right goyim, summer is here! Get ready for standard pool parties and of course, summer reading assignments. Here is a list of political and historical books I have found valuable and which could be considered part of an alt-right canon of sorts:
Patrick J. Buchanan, Suicide of a Superpower — Paleoconservative commentator Pat Buchanan has a number of titles dealing with American decline, but this one is the most relevant in my opinion. Much of his analysis of what is happening to the United States culturally and politically is very spot-on. The weakest point of the book is the emphasis on preserving the Christian identity of the United States, a statistical reality which will ironically survive the demographic changes Buchanan draws attention to elsewhere in the text. And considering how devoted the churches are to our colonization by the third world… He is still a very accessible author with good instincts about what is going wrong, but keep in mind that he gets to be a public figure because he stays just within the Overton window. Still a great read.
Guillaume Faye, Archaeofuturism — A French New Right author who I mentally refer to as William Fay, Guillaume Faye wrote Archaeofuturismalmost twenty years ago. The book does not feel dated (except when he talks about 1980s far-right intellectuals in France and why they failed) and indeed many of his predictions are eerily correct, especially on Islamic terror (the book was published in 1998) and troubles in the Eurozone. The French perspective is particularly useful because they have no hangups about being critical of the United States, which is something we must be, and are based in Europe (obviously). If we are truly to build a nationalist order, the very American alt-right should remain informed of ideological developments in the homeland. Continental Europe and the Anglo-Saxon satellites have long seen the world very differently, and nowhere is this more obvious than in Faye’s zeal for European integration, an issue that remains deeply contentious.
