Why I Am Not a Liberal
An intimate interview with one of the dissident right's foundational figures, this slim volume is the perfect digest of far right thought.
Jonathan Bowden was a major intellectual force in the London New-Right, a magisterial speaker with an encyclopaedic knowledge of politics both left and right. Surrounded by admirers, in this interview he answers questions on a wide range of topics, and reminds the dissident right of lessons it has forgotten in the years since his untimely death.
An Originary Grammar
of the Center
A challenge to the liberal worldview that places centrality at the heart of what it means to be human.
In Anthropomorphics, one of the dissident right's leading theoreticians provides a roadmap for penetrating and repurposing liberal disciplinary spaces. Bouvard gives us a powerful set of conceptual tools to meet modernity head on, reframing it according to the hierarchy, sacrality, and formalism so essential to illiberal thought.
The Ancient City
Numa Denis Fustel de Coulanges
Foreword by Dennis Bouvard
In The Ancient City, Fustel de Coulanges hands us the skeleton key unlocking classical civilization—the Indo-European domestic cult—showing this archaic religion to be the engine behind the rise and fall of the classical world.
In his foreword, Dennis Bouvard views The Ancient City through the lens of generative anthropology, pointing the way to a post-liberal understanding of our own social order, informed by the imperative order described by Fustel.
Nemesis: The Jouvenelian vs. the Liberal Model of Human Orders
Examining history through the lens of Bertrand de Jouvenel's "high–low vs. middle" mechanism, C. A. Bond shows that liberalism—far from a force for decentralization and peace—results rather in hyper-centralization and chronic conflict.
Ranging over such phenomena as Athenian democracy, radical Islam, Black Lives Matter, NGOs, the Enlightenment, the civil rights era, and feminism, Bond offers a secure theoretical basis for the illiberal revolt currently engulfing our world.
The Generative Principle of Political Constitutions
Joseph de Maistre
A major dissenting voice in the Enlightenment, de Maistre's Generative Principle refutes rationalistic approaches to statecraft in favour of a traditionalist one based on experience, instinct, and above all on God.
Imperium Press presents a new translation of this work, along with Maistre's Considerations on France and Study on Sovereignty. Never adequately answered, only ignored, his work formed the cornerstone for reactionary theory in the 19th century, as it does in the 21st.

Foreword by Ricardo Duchesne
Iliad is the cornerstone of the Western canon. Imperium Press presents Bryant’s celebrated verse translation, renowned for over a century as our mother tongue’s “best echo of the old Greek epic.”
In his foreword, Ricardo Duchesne shows Iliad to be a poem not for all times and places, but a native expression of a specifically European warrior aristocratic ethos. And one, as he shows, that represents a formative moment in the development of consciousness itself.
Filmer’s Patriarcha is the most cogent expression in history of patriarchal political theory—that patriarchal authority is the foundation of political obligation. Defending divine right of kings from a historical, scriptural, and logical perspective, this edition makes clear that Locke never successfully refuted him.
