Abstract

Is it reasonable to classify books written by today’s far-right conservative authors as belonging to their own distinct genre, and if so, is the hesitation of mainstream publishers to acquire these books the beginning of political censorship or simply business as usual? This paper will seek to suggest that not only does conservative literature qualify as its own genre, but also that accepting this categorization can help increase conservative titles’ visibility and sales.
