Washington Summit Publishers (WSP) is a white nationalist publisher based in Augusta, Georgia,[1] which produces and sells books on race and intelligence and related topics. Notable authors published by WSP include J. Philippe Rushton, Kevin B. MacDonald, Richard Lynn, Tatu Vanhanen, and Michael H. Hart.

The company is run by white supremacist Richard B. Spencer, who is also director of the National Policy Institute.

WSP has published Radix Journal through its imprint Radix.[2] The biannual publication has described itself as "a periodical on culture, race, metapolitics, critical theory, and society."[3] Contributors have included Jared Taylor, Kevin B. MacDonald, Alex Kurtagić, and Samuel T. Francis.

Before Spencer, the company was run by Louis Andrews. He was also director of the National Policy Institute and managing editor of The Occidental Quarterly, both heavily funded by William Regnery II.

In 2013, the company was listed as being headquartered in Whitefish, Montana.[4] As of 2019, the company had moved to Augusta, Georgia.[1]

This company has published content supportive of white nationalism and white supremacy. The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) said in 2006 that the company had reprinted racist tracts along with books promoting antisemitism and eugenics. Washington Summit Publishers is thus listed by the SPLC as a white nationalist hate group.[5][6]
