It seems that you can’t click on National Review or the Weekly Standard without some banal list of “Seven Conservative Classics” you just have to read! Invariably they either turn out to be the same books from months before, or just the latest retreads to come out of Cuckservatism Inc.’s presses.

Radix Founder, and Editor-in-Chief Richard Spencer recently participated in a reddit “Ask Me Anything“, and was asked to name a few “must read” Alt-Right titles. We’ve put together the titles mentioned as well as a few others we thought our readers might enjoy.

We hope you find this list useful, and it’s by no means exhaustive.
