Jack Donovan is the author of the The Way of Men — a straightforward, politically incorrect theory of masculinity that became an underground hit around the world.

He has appeared as a guest on The Art of Manliness, The Art of Charm, Mating Grounds, Renegade Radio, Blunt Force Truth and countless other podcasts to talk about his work.

Donovan has been blogging, writing and speaking about masculinity and tribalism since for over a decade.

He lives in the Pacific Northwest, where he leads a chapter of the infamous Wolves of Vinland  — an esoteric tribe of Germanic pagans.


The Way of Men

“…a thought-provoking treatise on the essential struggle of men…” – Sam Sheridan, A Fighter’s Heart

Part treatise and part polemic, The Way of Men uses history and evolutionary psychology to explain primal masculinity and what he calls the four “Tactical Virtues” of masculinity — Strength, Courage, Mastery and Honor.

A Sky Without Eagles

“Jack Donovan writes what most men think.” – Mike Smock, Pulse Firearms

A Sky Without Eagles is the first printed collection of Jack Donovan’s essays and speeches. Beginning with his viral hit, “Violence is Golden,” A Sky Without Eagles assembles Donovan’s best standalone commentary from 2010 through 2014.

Becoming a Barbarian

Becoming a Barbarian attacks the emasculated emptiness of life in the modern West – “The Empire of Nothing” -and shows men how to think tribally again. It reveals the weaknesses of universalistic thinking, and challenges readers to become the kind of men who could go “all-in” and devote their lives to one group of people above all others.

Blood Brotherhood

Blood-brotherhoods and similar rites have been employed by men to mark friendships and alliances for thousands of years. This survey of blood-brotherhood rites is a toolbox for the imagination, containing a wealth of research about blood-brotherhood myths and practices from a wide variety of cultures and time periods, including excerpted texts and original translations by Nathan F. Miller.
