HBD: Human Biodiversity

Interview with Louis Andrews

The newest installment to my series on individuals from the wild fringes of the publishing world—of writers and publishers of politically incorrect literature, opinion, and research—features Louis Andrews, chairman of the National Policy Institute and founder and editor of Washington Summit Publishers, a scientific imprint notable for publishing the books on human biodiversity that no one else dared. Among its roster of authors we find courageous men like Tatu Vanhanen and Richard Lynn.

Louis Andrews has not sought publicity, but he has done a great deal to disseminate modern research findings on racial differences and racial dynamics, a project with which he became involved very early on, back in the 1960s and 1970s. Much of the latest book-length published research we have in the area of human biodiversity has come through his publishing venture. Even the Channel 4 'documentary' that was aired in the United Kingdom in the Autumn of 2009, featuring Richard Lynn and J. Philippe Rushton, relied on Washington Summit books for its research (I reviewed the 'documentary' here). So did Nobel Prize winner James Watson when he commented on Africa's bleak prospects for development, much to his subsequent regret.

We find out about Mr. Andrews roots in the remotest colonial past, his early years, and his previous ventures. We also explore his perspective on a range of social issues and the future.
