Publisher's Summary

This program is read by the author.

The definitive firsthand account of the movement that permanently broke the American political consensus.

What do internet trolls, economic populists, white nationalists, techno-anarchists, and Alex Jones have in common? Nothing, except for an unremitting hatred of evangelical progressivism and the so-called “Cathedral” from whence it pours forth. 

Contrary to the dissembling explanations from the corporate press, this movement did not emerge overnight - nor are its varied subgroups in any sense interchangeable with one another. As united by their opposition as they are divided by their goals, the members of the New Right are willfully suspicious of those in the mainstream who would seek to tell their story. Fortunately, author Michael Malice was there from the very inception, and in The New Right recounts their tale from the beginning.  

Malice provides an authoritative and unbiased portrait of the New Right as a movement of ideas - ideas that he traces to surprisingly diverse ideological roots. From the heterodox right wing of the 1940s to the Buchanan/Rothbard alliance of 1992 and all the way through to what he witnessed personally in Charlottesville, The New Right is a thorough firsthand accounting of the concepts, characters and chronology of this widely misunderstood sociopolitical phenomenon. 

Today’s fringe is tomorrow’s orthodoxy. As entertaining as it is informative, The New Right is required listening for every American across the spectrum who would like to learn more about the past, present and future of our divided political culture.

Overdue and important

Michael Malice deftly delivers his take on the changes occurring on the right wing of the American political spectrum as only he can. While those of us who follow these matters will find a much of the phenomenon and characters in Malice’s presentation to be familiar, normies will be shocked and hopefully enlightened.

Malice narrates as only he can, bringing the text to life. It is my hope that he goes back and re-records the text of his previous work “Dear Reader” in his own voice.

This work comes highly recommended.

Entertaining and Informative...

The book delivers full Malice as expected. While most will miss the final in-joke of, "last but certainly least Tom Woods", I am sure that they will get many of the jokes and appreciate the irony and ridicule. This is a serious topic and Malice has delivered. But he did it in an interesting way and made me laugh out loud a number of times. Even my sons, who hate politics, loved some of the parts and could not help laughing at some of the ridicule.

Malice is an anarchist and begins the book with a shocking (to ordinary people) quote from Murray N. Rothbard's, For a New Liberty: The Libertarian Manifesto. He goes on to give a review of such Libertarian, New Right, and Conservative luminaries as Ayn Rand, Leonard Read, Ludwig von Mises, Ron Paul, Hans-Hermann Hoppe, Lysander Spooner, Ron Paul, and Murray Rothbard. He takes his shot at everyone, mentions the autistic types that one finds in the Libertarian movement but gets hist shots in on everyone even as he says quite a few kind things.

He talks about New Right personalities like Mike Cernovich, Anne Coulter, Jared Taylor, Alex Jones, Mencius Moldbug, Milo Yiannopoulos, Chris Cantwell, and plenty of others. He takes his shots but is not afraid to credit good ideas even when he does not like the individual.

My one issue is his use of Socratic irony to find the flaws in all positions offered by others while not presenting a clear positive perscription of his own. That having been said, he does something that I did not expect and recommended one of my favourite books (available from Audible as well as Kindle), The Machiavellians, by James Burnham. Anyone interested in political theory needs to read that book because the insights are very illuminating. Malice is bright, funny, and convincing. Loved the audiobook and the Kindle version.

Oh such a great book!

Brilliant! I wish there was 20 more hour of jam pack value, his recollections of the subcultures of PUA are so good and well researched, loved it!
I am myself an anarchist and having material so close to my heart like that is good delightful!

Malice is Brilliant

Malice does a great job of objectively exploring the right. Shines light on the good and bad. A great piece of work done by a Mensch.

Malice is hilarious and insightful. a deep dive into the new right phenomenon and the first that has come close to describing the phenomenon.

Malice: King of Trolls?

Imagine being this person.

And it's "you're* welcome" not "your"

This is an odd endorsement.

Great political analysis

I bought the physical copy of this book, then when it was released I immediately bought the audiobook version and I'm glad I did. Hearing Michael Malice, and all of the characters he does impressions of, is a great experience that I rarely hear in audiobooks.

The content is great too. The book does a great job of not focusing too much on any one person or idea, yet at the same time is able to bring all of these ideas and people together in a coherent way. I also appreciate the optimism expressed in the last chapter of the book - too many political books these days end with some dreary, pessimistic view of the future, this is not one of those books.

Overall, a great book I can't help but recommend to anyone, regardless of where they stand on the political spectrum.

malice aforethought

Michael earns his surname, from jump you are attacked by a ceaseless wit with a refreshing reprieve in his humor and courtesy. An enthralling and short read, and timely in such "polarizing" times. highly recommend.

I will shout this book title from the rooftops.

If ever a book was so mesmorizingly informative and fun, it's this. I am refreshed, energized and more confident that the tide is shifting from progressivism back to a culture of spirited, thoughtful argument and debate.

I loved this book!

I would recommend this to everyone I know.
The only thing I dislike is that some words were censored, because I think the book should be read as the author wrote it.

Outstanding

Brisk and efficient treatment of the New Right phenomenon; I feel thoroughly caught up.

Malice’s reading is great, especially his impersonation of Nixon describing Bohemian Grove: “The most ——— goddamn thing you could ever imagine!”

Going to immediately go back through it!

It's a great book that seriously analyzes the new right's various ethea and ideologies.

Malice's take is hilarious and he actually steel man's the various arguments even if he disagrees with it. It's honest, funny, and worth the read.

America’s Troll and Political Sage

I listened to the entire book in the first day, need I say more? Ok I will say more.

Being a Malice fan already I’m a bit partial to liking the book and already knew much of his opinion on the people and groups involved in the “New Right”, but his depth of research and understanding on both the modern Progressive movement and the New Right was very apparent and refreshing. If you’re on the left or the right, (maybe not far left) you’ll truly enjoy the book and will walk away with a much greater understanding of modern American politics; where it’s headed, and how we ended up here. It was my welcome to read this book.

a genuine accurate description of the new right

as someone on the new right myself I'm happy to point any leftists or progressive to this book for explanation.
it does a fantastic job of hitting all the heavy hitters and all the infighting and disagreement within the new right.

Excellent

A must read for anyone who considers themselves on the right or wants to know more about the right wing fringe.

Cannot recommend highly enough. It’s a fun read packed with jokes, snipes and information.

Michael packs a lot of info in little spaces

Michaels a smart guy. Sometimes a smart guy talking to a dumb one like me takes a bit of re listening. Concepts I can handle, thirty names in a paragraph I have trouble keeping straight. But then Michael is one of those people that remembers latin names to animals having always been fascinated with zoology. I have trouble keeping up if I'm not specifically focused. Hence, most of my listening while wokring books involve dick jokes, sudden outburst of violence and dick jokes.
Sometimes it's good to expand. I'm sure you won't have any troubles with the info that he's laying down but it can come in big spoonfuls. Needless to say, if you're worried that the stodgy, "WE Shant break our moral Character" rinos that would rather go down without a fight lest they get their gilded cuff-links dirty are to be the death of Conservatives, Michael's gonna tell you how the new breed is gonna make things okay so that children, adult children, who do not get their way on election day and thusly scream and yell at the skies for all to see, are not the guiding force of this great nation.
No, a bunch of us shit posters are gonna be.

Hold on tight and read or listen, maybe read and take notes. It won't kill ya to get a little more smart. But I swear, it gives me a headache trying.

Can't always get what ya want. But if you try sometimes, you might find, you get what you need.
Trump 2020 and on.
