About the Book

Best known as an underground satirist (Lucifer’s Lexicon) and as an irreverent critic of bien-pensant libertarianism (The Myth of Natural Rights), L.A. Rollins [1948 – 2015] was also an unruly exponent of historical revisionism who courted reprisal for his skeptical interrogations of canonical World War II and Holocaust historiography.

Drawn from a variety of marginal sources dating from the mid-1980s, the essays and book reviews in Outlaw History provide contemporary readers with a time-capsule showcase of Rollins’ scathing and scrupulous approach to dissident history—both as a practitioner of revisionism and, inevitably, as a skeptic of revisionist dogma. If the texts are as “problematic” now as when they were written, they also offer insight into a mode of unfettered freethinking that has since been expunged from intellectual discourse. To invoke a popular expression, Rollins “went there.” And he didn’t care.

Outlaw History is the third volume in the “The Portable L.A. Rollins” pocket paperback series co-published by Nine-Banded Books and Underworld Amusements. It features an introduction by the erudite revisionist and conspiracy researcher Michael A. Hoffman II and a prolegomenon by Chip Smith of Nine-Banded Books.
