The Social Contract Press (SCP) is an American publisher of white nationalist[1] literature. It was founded by John Tanton and is headed by Wayne Lutton. It publishes the quarterly Social Contract journal, as well as reprints and new works.

Social Contract Press has been described by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) as a hate group,[2] and by The Guardian as "racist".[3] It reprinted Jean Raspail's 1973 racist fantasy novel The Camp of the Saints. In 1996, editor Lutton described the book as a warning to white Americans, who he claimed were the "real Americans". According to SPLC, the novel was one of several racist works published by the company.[2]

Social Contract Press's staff overlaps with, and has promoted, white nationalist, white supremacist and anti-immigration organizations such as VDARE, FAIR, Numbers USA, the Center for Immigration Studies, American Renaissance, and the Council of Conservative Citizens.[4][2]
