Francis Parker Yockey, herald of Western resurgence, sought to apply the philosophy of Oswald Spengler to the problems of post-1945 Europe. Yockey's 'Cultural Vitalism' provides an organic and enduring method of analysis for the life-course of Civilizations.
Yockey: A Fascist Odyssey is the first sympathetic, full-length biography of this enigmatic figure. It analyses Yockey in his historical context: a post-war Europe divided between American plutocracy and Russian Bolshevism; the Europe of scaffolds, ruined cities, and Cold War confrontations.
Drawing on FBI and other state files, hitherto unpublished archives, and numerous personal interviews with those involved, this biography introduces a wealth of new material. The Allied 'war crimes trials' and the Communist Prague trials, both of which Yockey personally observed; opinions on Yockey by Sir Oswald Mosley, Ivor Benson, Adrien Arcand, and other important thinkers; the founding and activities of Yockey's European Liberation Front; the genesis and impact of Yockey's greatest writings; profiles on Yockey's colleagues and followers; the use of psychiatry as a political weapon against dissident Rightists; the background to Yockey's arrest, trial, and suicide -- these subjects, and many more, receive unique treatment in this comprehensive biography of a political visionary.

Kerry Bolton, without question, laboriously dug through a lot to obtain the information presented in this biography; letters, newspapers, pamphlets, broadcasts, FBI records, and then some.
Amazingly, after reading the book, I still found Yockey to be the same mysterious man who wrote the great “Imperium”. You’ll find out a few small things that might surprise you, such as: did you know Yockey was multi-lingual, had children, a womanizer, stubborn? Or that he knew Abdel Nasser? And that’s not even close to an eighth of what you’ll find out in this book.
Yockey was as controversial then as he is now, even among the dissident Right.
Bolton does a fantastic job of not only giving us a plethora of information on Yockey’s life, his contacts, his political reputation, but also masterfully summarizing Yockey’s philosophy, sometimes even better than Yockey himself—particularly on Yockey’s views on race, which, next to imperialism, may be his most controversial to the dissident Right. Bolton writes a great length on Oswald Spengler’s influence, which I personally appreciate, being a devout Spenglerian myself—especially when Bolton delved into Culture pathology. Bolton also isn’t afraid to delve into WWII revisionism and the JQ. With Yockey, a biography wouldn’t be complete without it. Although judging by the evidence supporting the revisionist claims, I would argue it is the established history that is the real revisionism, but that’s an entire subject in and of itself, and one that many others have written extensively on.
While Bolton is the first to defend Yockey against his critics, he is more than generous in presenting the criticisms of Yockey’s politics and philosophy. Sometimes, he even seems sympathetic; but he well knows that his job to the reader is to help understand these criticisms rather than ridicule them. I respect him for that, especially these days.
Personally, I wanted to know about the European Liberation Front, and Bolton delivers. Everything you ever wanted to know about it, look no further.
Another very good section is the reaction to Imperium. For instance, there’s a German review of the book from Paul Brock that Bolton presents which is arguably the best review of Imperium I’ve ever read; better than Evola’s.
Soon afterward, Bolton talks about the various interpretations of Yockey’s philosophy, the most powerfully interesting for me being the Odinist one, even though I’m not religious or spiritual.
Something that a few may find disappointing: there are no pictures, which for a biography is unorthodox.
Regardless, this book is a big treat to Yockey fans, Spengler fans, and will intrigue those just hearing about him. In fact, I would urge you, for those planning to read Imperium, to start with this book, as it is an excellent companion. For people like me, we had to actually read Nietzsche, Spengler, Goethe, and Evola to understand him. So be thankful you now have a shortcut that doesn’t deprive you of the fundamentals.
I give this new book a top rating for content and the research behind it—there are a couple of decades of research in this volume—but not for the actual Kindle edition that I bought. The Kindle e-book is poorly laid-out, has many typos, and is clearly missing some intended content. There is a Notre Dame yearbook photo of FPY that the author captions near the beginning of the book, but the image itself does not appear. Nor do any other images, and this is a book that requires illustrations. E-books can quickly be revised and reissued, so I don't consider this a fatal error. By the time you read this, such mistakes may well be rectified. Perhaps there will be a lower-cost hard copy as well?
The author puts some things into historical perspective that have generally been ignored or overlooked by Yockey commentators. Yockey's fear of mental-hospital torture and lobotomy, for example: this was a serious issue in that era. Kerry Bolton digs deep into the horrors of the scenes and shows us clearly why Yockey believed he was going to be made into "an animal" and willingly took the cyanide pill.
Bolton also compares the various treatments of Yockey by American enthusiasts and propagandists on the Far Right. RP Oliver often disagreed with Yockey on details but was usually his champion on fundamentals. Wilmot Robertson, who like Yockey was vaguely associated with Fr. Coughlin's 'Social Justice' in 1939-40, never really appreciated or comprehended the philosopher when he wrote about him in his 'Instauration' magazine many years later.
Kerry Bolton also points up an aspect of FPY that completely eluded earlier writers: Yockey's philosophical roots in Catholic teaching about social justice and its suspicion of Modernism, as well as Catholic perception of culture of the West as an organic whole. Usually this last bit is interpreted as a Spenglerite retread, but seeing Yockey as merely a Spengler fan may be missing the point.
