Washington Summit Publishers is a white nationalist publisher based in Whitefish, Montana, United States[1] which produces and sells books on race and intelligence and related topics.[2] Notable authors published by WSP include Kevin B. MacDonald, Richard Lynn, Tatu Vanhanen, and Michael H. Hart. The company is run by Richard B. Spencer, who is also director of the National Policy Institute, and publishes Radix Journal through its imprint Radix.[3] The biannual publication describes itself as "a periodical on culture, race, meta-politics, critical theory, and society."[4] Contributors have included Kevin B. MacDonald, Alex Kurtagić, Samuel T. Francis and Derek Turner.

Washington Summit Publishers has faced criticism for publishing racialist content supportive of white nationalism. In a 2006 article titled "The New Racialists," the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has said that the company was run by Louis Andrews (who died in 2011), who was also director of the National Policy Institute and managing editor of the Occidental Quarterly. The SPLC says the company reprints racist tracts in addition to publishing books on eugenics and antisemitism.[5][5] The SPLC lists Washington Summit Publishers as a white nationalist group.[6]
