Publisher's Summary

Identitarians and others making up the European resistance lack a doctrine that truly serves as a political and ideological synthesis of who they are - a doctrine that speaks above parties and sects, above rival sensibilities and wounded feelings, that brings the resistance together around clear ideas and objectives, uniting them in opposition to the Europeans' dramatic decline. Our people today face the gravest peril in their entire history: demographic collapse, submission to an alien colonisation and to Islam, the bastardisation of the European Union, prostration before American hegemony, the forgetting of our cultural roots, and so on. In the form of an introductory text and a dictionary of 177 keywords, Guillaume Faye, one of the most creative writers of the European 'Right', makes a diagnosis of the present situation and proposes a program of resistance, reconquest, and regeneration. He holds out the prospect of a racial and revolutionary alternative to the present decayed civilisation. 

The manifesto's principal objective is thus to unify the resistance by developing a common doctrine that unites everyone and every tendency seeking to constitute a European network of resistance - a doctrine that goes beyond the old sectarian quarrels and superficial divisions. All relevant subjects, including politics, economics, geopolitics, demographics, and biology are broached. As it was for the 19th-century Left with Marx's Communist Manifesto, Why We Fight is destined to become the key work for 21st century identitarians. Also included is an original foreword by translator Michael O'Meara, author of New Culture, New Right, as well as a foreword by Dr. Pierre Krebs, Chairman of the Thule-Seminar in Germany.

He Is Missed

Very unique voice, positive in the purest sense. We must heed the call: it is our duty and obligation.

Essential reading

Faye was the consummate revolutionary of the right, speaking with clarity and force on issues well thought through. This Lexicon is indispensable for all Europeans that desire to be free, and Heritage Americans can learn much from these definitions. This reads like a instruction manual for a powerful rhetoric and dialectic designed to decompose the various lies and controversies of our dissolute age. His work is not perfect, there are certain emissions of critique, and he has little understands the Heritage American perspective, however, his contribution is honest and compelling.

Fantastic

listen to it. Faye's focus on the practical,as opposed to the disembodied and the theoretical, alone justifies the purchase.

Good, not the Best

Overall I recommend people read this book, I agree pretty much which 75% of the book. I gave it 3 stars instead of 5 because the author imo is just too socialist and authoritarian. He isn't wrong in everything he says but I do see some common misconceptions when he speaks about capitalism and authoritarian law. It makes for quite a peculiar read, because one minute I'm nodding my head in approval and the next I'm rolling my eyes at his socialist tripe. I'd argue that shifting the perspective of this book to a more PaleoLibertarian/Minarchist ideology whilst retaining its European Identitarianism is a much better fit for the European continent as it's something more flexible and agreeable to Europeans as a whole. I highly recommend reading the works of Hans Herman Hoppe, Murray Rothbard and Ron Paul as a reference point. You need to study economics to get the full picture and this author clearly has got a poor idea of economics imo. His environmental protectivism is good. Note that the book is little outdated
