The Turner Diaries by Andrew MacDonald
The Turner Diaries, a futuristic action-adventure novel, has been an underground bestseller for more than four decades. It chronicles a future America wracked by government oppression, revolutionary violence, and guerrilla war.
The Turner Diaries is much more than an action-adventure novel: It warns us of how American society might unravel if the immigration and racial policies being pursued then — which are being pursued to an even greater extent today — were allowed to continue. It is an appeal to ordinary Americans to take responsibility for what is happening to their country and to their world; it is an appeal for them to change course before its nightmare predictions come true. Unfortunately, America has not changed course — and so the message of The Turner Diaries is more important than ever.
The Turner Diaries first appeared in the newspaper Attack in serialized form starting in 1975, with one chapter appearing each
month. It was published as a book in 1978. This second edition was released in 1980. It is set in what was then the future — the 1990s.
The book follows the adventures of underground fighter Earl Turner, as described in his personal diary, discovered 100 years after the revolution that swept away a corrupt and tyrannical regime, delivered America back to its people, and remade the world.
