A Life in the Political Wilderness is a 2011 book by Welf Herfurth, who eventually became an Australian National-Anarchist. Others involved in the book were Tim Johnstone (Contributor), Tomislav Sunic (Introduction), and Troy Southgate (Introduction).

The book states several unusual nationalist views, such that nationalists should primarily focus on economic issues. Jared Taylor has written that "He has studied deeply, he writes well, his insights are sometimes brilliant, and he is not afraid to cast aside even the most fundamental notions about how Western societies should be run. I think his conclusions — even his assumptions — are almost always dead wrong, but A Life in the Political Wilderness is still one of the most provocative essays on practical racial politics to appear in some time."[1]
