Mullins is mentioned in chapter 4 of Michael Lind's _Up from Conservatism:
Why the Right is Wrong for America_ (Free Press, 1996) as the author of a
book called _Secrets of the Federal Reserve: The London Connection_, one of
the sources of Pat Robertson's book _The New World Order_. Lind calls
_Secrets of the Federal Reserve_ "blatantly anti-Semitic; indeed, [its]
theories about Jewish machinations are difficult to distinguish from those
of Hitler and contemporary neo-Nazis" (105).
And he depressingly adds (107): "According to a publisher's note in
_Secrets of the Federal Reserve_, the book was originally commissioned by
the poet Ezra Pound in 1949. At the time Pound was confined in a mental
hospital, as an alternative to being tried for treason for his broadcasts
on behalf of Hitler and Mussolini during World War II. Mullins writes in
his foreword that his book was banned and burned in West Germany in 1955,
presumably under the laws banning neo-Nazi propaganda."
