by Bradford L. Huie
for The American Mercury

WHAT IS PROBABLY the most controversial novel ever written — The Turner Diaries — is the subject of this week’s chapter of our new audio book, The Fame of a Dead Man’s Deeds.

(ILLUS.: The cover and autographed title page of a first edition copy of The Turner Diaries, first published as a serial in 1975 and as a book in 1978.)

What is the truth about William Pierce’s first novel, The Turner Diaries? Why was it written? Was it really a “blueprint” for violent revolution as some have suggested? Why are people still reading it and talking about it today, more than 40 years after it was written? You’re about to find out.

Today we rejoin Vanessa Neubauer in her reading of this week’s installment, chapter ten, of Professor Robert S. Griffin’s masterful biography of Dr. William Luther Pierce, The Fame of a Dead Man’s Deeds.

How did Dr. Pierce, an American scientist and academic, come to found the most influential racial-nationalist organization in America? What were his goals? To what extent did he succeed? Listen in to this fascinating intellectual journey by pressing the play button below (or at the end of this article).

One of the most original — and controversial — thinkers of the 20th century was White nationalist, novelist, and founder of a new European religion, Cosmotheism, Dr. William L. Pierce.

The only real biography of Dr. Pierce is Professor Robert S. Griffin’s The Fame of a Dead Man’s Deeds, which was published in 2001. This week we continue with the tenth chapter, “The Turner Diaries,” of the book. Experience William Pierce, the writer, the philosopher, the radical — and the builder of an intentional White community in the mountains of West Virginia — just as Robert Griffin experienced him, by pressing the play button now.
