White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller recommended an explicitly racist novel to Breitbart News at a time when the book was obscure outside white nationalist circles, a Hatewatch investigation revealed.

Miller flagged "The Camp of the Saints," a book popular among white nationalists and neo-Nazis, to the conservative website on Sept. 6, 2015, when he was an aide to then-Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama.

"The Camp of the Saints" by Jean Raspail first came out in France in 1973, and the novel gradually gained popularity among extremists for its fictionalization of the "great replacement" or "white genocide" myth. The Social Contract Press, a white nationalist publishing firm, began distributing the book in the United States in 1994. But it wasn't until Donald Trump became president in January 2017 that it achieved any association with the White House.
