MAIORES NOSTRI, QVAE LIBEROS SVOS DISCERE ET QVOS IN LVDOS ITARE VELLENT INSTITVERVNT
Havamal is the major work of Norse wisdom literature, the counsel of Odin himself. This is the accumulated wisdom of one who has moved under a northern sky, and killed many men. Translated into the original alliterative meter, this Havamal is true to the original, at once archaic and down to earth.
The Imperium Press edition also includes other selections from the Poetic Edda and Völsunga Saga, as well as 150 proverbs collected from across the Norse sagas.
The Populist Delusion
By explicating elite thinkers from Mosca all the way to Paul Gottfried, Parvini explodes the populist delusion—the idea that the people are or can ever be sovereign. In this book he ties these thinkers together into a coherent narrative that is the coup de grâce for the idea of grassroots social change.
But rather than being a blackpill, this turns out to be immensely useful for right wing activism. By focusing our attention on tightly organized minorities as vehicles for change, Parvini revives the old idea of vanguardism as the true hope for any friend of the people.
The Ancient Family
The Indo-European ancestor cult is the grandfather of all European nationalism, traditionalism, and patriarchy, whose purest forms have deviated little from it in 5,000 years.
In The Ancient Family we get a picture of the primordial Aryan family structure, which was later built up into highly technical, world-girdling empires that maintained their ethnic integrity to the very end.
This may be the ultimate Study in Reaction. If there can be a serious challenge to modernity, it will look like this.
Numa Denis Fustel de Coulanges
The National System
of Political Economy
Marx and Adam Smith formed the basis of 20th century economic theory, but Friedrich List formed the basis of 20th century economic practice. In showing that England's rise was facilitated not by free markets but by protectionism, List pointed the way for nations to succeed in the face of competition. All nationalist economies have consciously followed his blueprint: Germany, Italy, China, and above all, America from 1850-1950—this is the America that Trump wanted to make economically great again.
Imperium Press brings you List's magnum opus, The National System of Political Economy, an economic text forgotten only in the West, and by far the most important for understanding the history and economics of the 20th century.
After the death of Achilles, the Greeks award his prized armour to Odysseus rather than Ajax. Overcome by shame at this dishonour, Ajax repays the insult with bloody vengeance.
Sophocles’ Ajax contrasts the archaic man to the classical man. Noble, proud, and vengeful, Ajax embodies the Indo-European warrior-aristocrat, just as the cunning, clever, and silver-tongued Odysseus embodies the new man of Greece. Sophocles’ work is second to none in holding up the shame culture that so characterizes traditional social orders.
Folktales in the Indo-European Tradition is a massive collection of 150 folktales, organized by how far back in the Indo-European migrations they can be traced—some well into the Bronze Age. It includes 20 beautiful colour illustrations by the artist Graman and a foreword written by Imperium Press' editor-in-chief, where he shows that comparative folkloristics can be used to reconstruct the beliefs and practices of the Proto-Indo-Europeans.
This work is a major contribution to European culture and will reposition folklore as central to our native character and worldview.
Folktales in the
Firstness Journal: Issue #3
Edited by Joel Davis
Firstness Journal is the centre of serious right wing discourse today.
Issue #3 features essays by Joel Davis, Thomas777, Josh Neal, Marcus Cunningham, Adam Katz, Aaron Hunter, Frederik Boreas, Owen Gilbride, and Jim Bonner. Investigating jurisprudence, political economy, sociology, and political theory in light of affirming authority, this is the vanguard of dissident right-wing thought.
Major Works, Vol. I
Joseph de Maistre
Joseph de Maistre is one of the greatest of all reactionary thinkers, and in this volume, three of his principal works are brought together unabridged.
Maistre’s penetrating analysis and relentless counter-attack on the Enlightenment have made him a primary illiberal voice. The three books brought together here are the most important works of theory in his corpus, translated anew in a rendering more faithful to the original French. With an introduction by Thomas F. Bertonneau outlining Maistre’s main objections to liberalism, this is now the definitive edition of the master’s major works.
Ballads Weird and Wonderful
Edited by R. P. Chope
Imperium Press presents Ballads Weird and Wonderful, twenty-five poems of the dark, the grotesque, and the unearthly. With equally unearthly illustrations by Vernon Hill, this collection is perfect for when the veil between this world and the next grows thin.
The Complete Political Works
Filmer is the greatest absolutist theorist in English history. His Patriarcha was so incendiary that attempts to rebut it gave birth to liberal political theory. His patriarchalist concept of legitimacy has fatal implications for democracy and constitutionalism, and so liberals could not allow him to go unanswered.
This edition collects his whole political corpus, and in the introduction it is shown that answers by the likes of John Locke have proven woefully inadequate. Filmer's thought remains as relevant to political theory today as it was 400 years ago.
The debut novella of one of our foremost dissident thinkers, Steelstorm opens up terrifying vistas of Homeric violence and Venusian sky-city arcologies.
After WARDAY, when millions of human lives ceased at once in a flash of nuclear hellfire, the lives of sadistic junkie Billy Wong, Surgeon-Minister Woldemar Mohamet al-Husseini, and Leers would be bound together by some unseen hand moving them toward God’s ultimate purpose.
Henry Sumner Maine
Churchill once said that “democracy is the worst form of government except for all others…” and in Popular Government, Henry Sumner Maine answers him 60 years in advance with “…unless you examine any part of history at all.”
In this book, one of the greatest legal minds of the 19th century
examines the question of governance, and finds democracy wanting. In an age where democracy has never been more fragile, Maine’s clear-eyed analysis has never been more relevant.

Foreword by Aidan Maclear
Beowulf is the formative work of Englishness, a story of our origins, a bridge between our Christian and pagan identity. It is also a work of sublime poetry and heroism, telling the tale of the archetypal dragon slayer and king.
Imperium Press offers an alliterative verse, dual language edition (English and Old English), along with several other old Saxon poems in this volume. These plus copious footnotes and commentary explaining points of literary and historical interest make this the definitive collection of West-Germanic heroic poetry.
The Present Time
The Present Time is a collection of the most reactionary essays by Thomas Carlyle. In them he critiques democracy, laissez-faire economics, and the idea of progress with unmatched savagery and erudition.
This volume of his most radical thought also includes an exhaustive glossary, finally making Carlyle accessible to non-specialists. Carlyle is one of the towering figures of illiberal thought, and this collects his strongest material into a compact volume.
American Extremist: The Psychology of Political Extremism
In American Extremism, Josh Neal undertakes a full psychoanalysis of political extremism both on the right and the left.
The results are startling—what makes America so prone to political extremism is that state and quasi-state actors such as NGOs, academia, and the media are the true originators of political violence. In other words, violence against normality is at the heart of liberalism.
This sharp critique is a powerful tool in wresting the mainstream narrative away from those who would do us harm.
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.
Translated by W.C. Bryant
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.
