Northwest Front Recommended Reading List
The following works have been selected because each of them has something of value to offer the Aryan reader by way of information, ideas, or instruction. This does not mean that we agree with every single word in them, or that you will. Most are written by our own people, but some are outright anti-White in content, while others contain leftist propaganda or perpetuate liberal stereotypes. Learning to read such enemy literature between the lines, to garner the truth and wisdom while scorning the lies and the malice, is in itself a skill which racial nationalists should cultivate and master.
Most of these works are available in bookstores and public libraries, although many are out of print, and you may have to hunt a bit or get them on inter-library loan. To assist you in obtaining those which are not readily available, we append a list of racial nationalist booksellers at the end of these recommendations.
A final word: inevitably, we will have left out someone's favorite book or author. The corpus of Aryan racialist literature in the English language is far more extensive than the few titles listed here, and in future we hope to publish an even more extensive list when resources permit. Remember: cliche though it may be, it is a truth that those who will not read have no advantage over those who cannot read. So turn off that damned tube and get down to the library!

HAC'S PERSONAL PICKS
1984 by George Orwell - If writers may be gifted with prophecy, Orwell had it. This book is absolutely essential to understanding the world we live in today---the abuse of language in the name of "political correctness", the attempt to criminalize thought, the demand of complete, lockstep conformity with Big Brother. Read!
A CLOCKWORK ORANGE by Anthony Burgess - The sparkling quasi-Russian slang alone makes this a joy to read, but beyond that we are once again confronted with an establishment attempt to penalize difference and enforce conformity, in this case through the use of biochemical behavior modification. The character of Alex is a shining monument to that irrepressible spirit of human depravity which can never be vanquished, his ultimate fate a triumph of man's unconquerable will to destroy.
THE COMPLETE SHERLOCK HOLMES STORIES by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle - Not only enjoyable as detective stories, but for the glimpse they offer into the late Victorian era which I personally believe to have been Aryan man's pinnacleof achievement.
SELECTED WORKS OF BOOTH TARKINGTON - I can hear some of you now, saying "huh?" But I read Tarkington for relaxation, schmaltzy stuff like the Penrod series and Seventeen. I enjoy it because for a very brief time, I can return to a sane, stable, White America of peace and order and normal human relationships not based on psychopolitical power games, political correctness, "diversity", the desperate scramble for money, or deviate sexual acts. We've pretty much forgotten what such a world is like, I'm afraid. It helps to go back every now and then.
SELECTED WORKS OF H. P. LOVECRAFT - An Aryan fantaisist and a genuine mystic, in my view second only to Edgar Allan Poe. Liberal revisionists have desperately tried to "clean up" Lovecraft's open Aryan racialism in the years since his death in 1937, but it ain't gonna fly. Lovecraft was one of us, all right.
SELECTED WORKS OF H. L. MENCKEN - Another one of our people's forgotten literary heroes and philosophers. Sometimes called "the Will Rogers of Fascism".
COMPLETE WORKS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE - No comment necessary, forsooth.
