Homo Americanus is a powerful investigation into the origins and dynamics of Americanism. Drawing from many long-forgotten or suppressed sources in the fields of literature, history, anthropology and philosophy, this book represents an interdisciplinary critique of America’s founding myths, its riddled present, and its questionable tomorrow.

Dr. Tomislav Sunic casts strong light on many facets of the American question: the postmodern American psychology driven by a sense of Jewish-inspired chosenness, America’s linguistic manipulations, its techno-scientific religion of boundless progress, and the American geopolitical reality as a menacing and self-destructive hegemon, which puts not only the survival of its own European legacy at risk, but also the heritage of all European peoples worldwide.

Kevin MacDonald is a retired Professor of Psychology at California State University-Long Beach. After receiving a Masters degree in evolutionary biology, he received a Ph. D. in Biobehavioral Sciences, both at the University of Connecticut. Since assuming his position at California State University-Long Beach, his research has focused on developing evolutionary perspectives on culture, developmental psychology and personality theory, the origins and maintenance of monogamous marriage in Western Europe, and ethnic relations (group evolutionary strategies). He is the author of more than 100 scholarly papers and reviews, and he is the author of Social and Personality Development: An Evolutionary Synthesis (1988), A People That Shall Dwell Alone: Judaism as a Group Evolutionary Strategy (1994), Separation and Its Discontents: Toward an Evolutionary Theory of Anti-Semitism (1998), and The Culture of Critique: An Evolutionary Analysis of Jewish Involvement in Twentieth-Century Intellectual and Political Movements (1998). He has also edited three books, Sociobiological Perspectives on Human Development (1988), Parent-Child Play: Descriptions and Implications (1994), and Evolutionary Perspectives on Human Development (2004). Cultural Insurrections, a collection of essays, appeared in 2008.

Alain de Benoist is the leading philosopher behind the European "New Right" movement (a label which Benoist himself rejects, perceiving himself as falling outside the usual Left/Right dichotomy), a metapolitical school of thought which he helped to found in France in 1968 with the establishment of GRECE (Research and Study Group for European Civilisation). He continues to write and give lectures and interviews. He lives in Paris.
