A Dissident’s Guide to Blacks and Africa — the Latest Book from AmRen

Chris Roberts, American Renaissance, September 29, 2020


We are pleased to announce the release of A Dissident’s Guide to Blacks and Africa. Click here to buy it from our store. Writing in Counter-Currents, Spencer J. Quinn captures the book’s purpose perfectly:

What makes A Dissident’s Guide so special is how it approaches this singular problem from so many different angles. We have historical perspectives, brief biographies, book reviews, race-realist memoirs, psychological analyses, personal tragedies, and dire predictions. That some of its authors are black and about a third of its essays deal with Africa rather than the United States only adds layers of meaning and complexity to this unforgettable essay collection. Yes, it is truly a dissident’s guide which will fortify anyone brave enough to be on the race-realist Right these days. But it will also serve as an expeditious (and perhaps nearly painless) eyeopener for non-dissidents. It leaves all the dry science and statistics to people like Michael Levin and J. Philippe Rushton, and instead focuses more on the social, psychological, and emotional stakes we all have in dealing (or not dealing) with race. A Dissident’s Guide is not so much hard to refute but hard to refuse. Of all the great works I have read coming from American Renaissance, this one might have the best chance of breaking through to a broader audience.

These essays grapple with the realities of race in a way that is “free from dogma, preconceptions, and wishful thinking,” as Jared Taylor writes in the introduction. More than ever, discussion of race in America is full of absurdities and falsehoods. A Dissident’s Guide to Blacks and Africa is what an “honest conversation about race” looks like.
