No other work in defense of the West possesses the eloquence, erudition, passion and mystique of Imperium. This prophetic masterwork is at once a clarion call to arms in defense of Europe and the West, and a sweeping historical-philosophical treatise in the Spenglerian mold. A magisterial work of matchless prose, with historical insight on every page, it skewers Allied wartime propaganda, and philosophizes with a hammer in favor of a coming Western empire of "absolute politics."
Revilo P. Oliver, University of Illinois professor of classics, praised Imperium as "a work that we must study and ponder, if we would act intelligently in our time... The great value of Imperium is that it forces us to reconsider our position realistically. We cannot afford the least sentimentality or illusion; we must not equate words with deeds; we dare not mistake wishes for possibilities. Our situation is too desperate. ...If Imperium shocks us into a realization of how precarious are our chances of survival, and how hard we shall have to fight for everything that we have, it will mark an epoch in our history."
The book's Chicago-born author, Francis P. Yockey, was just 30 years old when he wrote Imperium in six months in a quiet village on Ireland's eastern coast. His masterpiece continues to shape the thinking and steel the will of readersaround the world. One expression of its enduring impact was the publication in 1999 of Dreamer of the Day: Francis Parker Yockey and the Postwar Fascist International, an ambitious 640-page biography by Kevin Coogan.
Tens of thousands of copies of Imperium have been sold worldwide, with foreign-language editions in Spanish, German, and Hungarian. For this handsome Noontide edition, Theodore J. O'Keefe provides an eloquent, informative introduction.
"In this book," writes Yockey, "are the precise, organic foundations of the Western soul, and in particular, its Imperative at the present stage."
"...What is written here is also for the true America, even though the effective America of the moment, and of the immediate future is a hostile America, an America of willing, mass-minded tools in the service of the Culture-distorting political and total enemy of the Western Civilization."
"The mission of this generation is the most difficult that has ever faced a Western generation. It must break the terror by which it is held in silence, it must look ahead, it must believe when there is apparently no hope, it must obey even if it means death, it must fight to the end rather than submit. ...The men of this generation must fight for the continued existence of the West..."
"The soil of Europe, rendered sacred by the streams of blood which have made it spiritually fertile for a millennium, will once again stream with blood until the barbarians and distorters have been driven out and the Western banner waves on its home soil from Gibraltar to North Cape, from the rocky promontories of Galway to the Urals."
