The Barnes Review is a bi-monthly magazine founded in 1994 by Willis Carto's Liberty Lobby and headquartered in Washington, D.C..[1] According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, The Barnes Review is "is one of the most virulent anti-Semitic organizations around," and its journal and website are "dedicated to historical revisionism and Holocaust denial."[2] The SPLC writes:

Claiming that its mission is to "tell the whole about history," TBR really practices an extremist form of revisionist history that includes defending the Nazi regime, denying the Holocaust, discounting the evils of slavery, and promoting white nationalism.[2]

Willis Carto was closely affiliated with the Review and had earlier founded the Institute for Historical Review in 1979, but lost control of that organization in an internal takeover by former associates.[3]

The journal is named for the Holocaust denier Harry Elmer Barnes.[4] Linked with it is a TBR Bookclub promoting what the SPLC describes as "a wide range of extremist books and publications."[2] The organization also holds conferences with speakers such as Ted Gunderson. These "nearly annual" conferences "attract an international crowd of antigovernment extremists, anti-Semites, white supremacists, and racist conspiracy theorists."[2]

Eustace Mullins was a contributing editor to the Barnes Review.[5]
