Artists of the Right: Resisting Decadence är en antologi på 210 sidor bestående av artiklar om författare, konstnärer och andra aktörer i den kulturella miljön som antingen explicit eller implicit markerar avstånd från det rådande vänstervridna och liberala paradigmet som rådde på deras tid (och som fortfarande regerar), och ofta främjat dessa alternativa identitära och aristokratiska perspektiv på kulturellt skapande personlighetens roll i samhället. Boken är utgiven på Counter-Currents Publishing och är redigerad av doktoranden Greg Johnson, redaktör för webbplatsen anknuten till förlaget. Boken är skriven av den Nya Zeeländske författaren Kerry Bolton. Konstnärerna och författarna som blir genomgångna av Bolton är D. H Lawrence, H. P. Lovecraft, Gabriele d'Annunzio, Filippo Marinetti, W. B Yeats, Knut Hamsun, Ezra Pound, Wyndham Lewis, Henry Williamson och Roy Campbell.

Från bokens insida

"Kerry Boltons Artists of the Right: Resisting Decadence är en studie över tio ledande 1900-tals artister - inkluderat banbrytande modernister - som var vänligt inställda till Fascismen eller Nationalsocialismen: D. H. Lawrence, H. P. Lovecraft, Gabriele D’Annunzio, Filippo Marinetti, W. B. Yeats, Knut Hamsun, Ezra Pound, Wyndham Lewis, Henry Williamson and Roy Campbell. Bolton härleder deras politiska åtaganden till deras liv, sin konst och sina ekonomiska, religiösa och filosofiska övertygelse. I levande prosa, demolerar Kerry Bolton fullständigt några av de mest solida fördomarna i det liberala sinnet. "

Sagt om boken

“Kerry Bolton’s book Artists of the Right blows away the notion of right-wing philistinism and, instead, leads to a radically different assessment of the arts during the first half of the 20th century. For it now appears that almost every significant artist of the period (Pound, Yeats, Lewis) rejected both materialism and the egalitarian solutions of the Left. Bolton’s analysis is brash, opinionated, peppery, honest, and trail-blazing. In the biographies of his major figures he tends to include the material which is habitually left out or skirted over.”

Jonathan Bowden

“Kerry Bolton is a maverick among scholars. In Artists of the Right he distills for us the political, social, and religious thinking of some of the most outstanding artists of the twentieth century in infinitely readable prose. This is a book that belongs on the shelf of every free-thinking patriot and defender of European man.”

Leo Yankevich

“K. R. Bolton’s Artists of the Right is something that we have needed for a long time: a clear and unapologetic study of those literary and artistic figures of the last century who explicitly and forthrightly rejected leftism and left-liberalism. Marxist and socialist ideologies are too easily assumed to be the natural badges of modern artists. Bolton shows that was certainly not the case for a great many major figures of the 20th century. His straightforward exposition of the lives and work of these men shows two things: first, that many important poets, novelists, and thinkers of the 20th century were profoundly rightist in their political views; and second, that they by no means presented a seamless front of solidarity in their opinions. Their independence of mind saved them from leftist groupthink, but it also guaranteed that even among themselves they would be strongly divided on many issues. Bolton’s approach is sympathetic and appreciative, and that in itself is a welcome departure from the condemnatory or patronizing tone that a typical liberal academic would have brought to this task.”

—Dr. Joseph S. Salemi, Hunter College, C.U.N.Y.

“Kerry Bolton is the Noam Chomsky of the New Right. His double doctorates in theology and encyclopedic knowledge of 20th century history qualify him as a guru, and as such I recommend his writings on geopolitics, culture, and spirituality to anyone with more than a passing interest in these subjects. Every day since VE Day has been a Marxist holiday for the culture makers of the West. Artists on the Right is a declaration of the manifest bankruptcy of this legacy.”

—Charles Krafft

“Eye-opening, exhilarating, and inspiring, Bolton examines figures both familiar and almost unknown, constructing a counter-canon to show that, no matter what your teachers told you, the great minds of the 20th century were culturally, politically and spiritually of the Right.”
