The White Separatist Movement in the United States : "White Power, White Pride!"

The White Separatist Movement in the United States: White Power White Pride
by Betty A. Dobratz, Stephanie L. Shanks-Meile

"Although the white separatist movement stereotype is that of a Southern phenomenon tied to an uneducated and disenfranchised segment of men, sociologists Betty A. Dobratz and Stephanie L. Shanks-Meile show that the movement is in reality more complex and multifaceted. To compile this study, the authors interviewed more than 125 white separatists, attended rallies, congresses, and other gatherings, and examined many movement-generated documents. The result is a compelling book that chronicles the history, ideology, and strategies of the white separatist movement." Read More...

Encyclopedia of White Power: A Sourcebook on the Radical Racist Right

Encyclopedia of White Power: A Sourcebook on the Radical Racist Right
by Jeffrey Kaplan 
Click to Purchase or see further Reviews
"Although some of the contributors are themselves members or former members of radical-right movements, they were asked to neither demonize nor proselytize but create an unbiased historical record. The overriding purpose is to gain a greater understanding of the "Euro-American White Power subculture."Among criteria for inclusion are that the movement or individual is strongly racist but not a militia movement focused on the Second Amendment; revolutionary rather than conservative; strongly religious; contemporary rather than historical (with some exceptions, such as Hitler); and representative of eight major categories, such as "Christian Identity," 'Ku Klux Klan," and "Youth Scene." Emphasis is on U.S and Scandinavia, with some coverage of the United Kingdom. Specific examples of topics that are covered include Aryan Nations, Father Joseph Coughlin, David Duke , Internet recruiting , Skinheads , and Waco." Read More...

Soldiers of God : White Supremacists and Their Holy War for America

Soldiers of God : White Supremacists and Their Holy War for America
by Howard Bushart, John R. Craig, Myra Barnes, Myra, Ph.D. Barnes

"We authors learned as we wrote. We promised not to judge or misrepresent our interviewees, Klansman and militiamen and skinheads and ministers of the Christian Identity faith who not only supplied us with privately printed literature but loaned us their videotapes and personal photographs to print in the book. Anti-government sentiment links the members of these groups, but for surprising Scriptural reasons. We were given permission to quote from their Bible study guide, never before seen by the public, whose interpretations define the basis for British Israelism and its American counterpart Christian Identity. All information is firsthand, and all photos are printed for the first time." Read More...

Religion and the Racist Right : The Origins of the Christian Identity Movement

Religion and the Racist Right : The Origins of the Christian Identity Movement
by Michael Barkun

"A fascinating and terrifying account that is at once a work of academic scholarship and a startling expos‚ of a particularly virulent form of religious extremism. Barkun (Political Science/Syracuse Univ.) examines the origins and ideology of the so-called Christian Identity Movement. This small movement (upper-range estimates figure its adherents at no more than 50,000 and lower guesses say they number only 2,000) has nevertheless succeeded in dominating the discourse of the extreme right--even among groups not even distantly related to it. White supremacist and anti-Semitic, the Christian Identity Movement (composed of groups like the Aryan Nation, the Posse Comitatus, and David Duke's element of the Ku Klux Klan, among others) has three core beliefs--whites are the true descendants of the biblical Israelites and as such have a providential role to fulfill; Jews are unrelated to the biblical Israelites and are instead the spawn of Satan; and the world is on the verge of a fiery apocalypse in which the Aryans must battle the Jews and their allies to redeem the world. In this last regard, the Israel of the traditional apocalyptic accounts becomes identified with the United States rather than the ancient land of Palestine. Barkun convincingly demonstrates the direct roots of these Christian Identity groups in an obscure school of 19th-century thought in England known as British-Israelism. This philosophy saw Britons as the descendants of the ten lost tribes of Israel, and thus linked to the Jews, with a role as a chosen people. Unlike its violent American progeny, however, the previous movement was not anti-Semitic and, in fact, recognized a kinship with Jews. Compelling and well presented, this volume deserves to be read by anyone concerned with Christian or political extremism in America." Read More....

In God's Country : The Patriot Movement and the Pacific Northwest

In God's Country : The Patriot Movement and the Pacific Northwest
by David A. Neiwert

"There is good reason for focusing on the Pacific Northwest (that is, Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana): It has been the cradle for much of the movement's most important players, and has provided fertile ground for much of its growth. Beginning with the arrival of the racist Christian Identity religion in the form of the Aryan Nations compound in northern Idaho in 1976, and continuing through the arrival of the Posse Comitatus on the farm-crisis scene in the 1980s, the conspiratorial beliefs that form the movement's bedrock have spread gradually, taking root in a setting of rural socioeconomic alienation that creates an opening for the oft-disguised Patriot agenda."

American Extremists: Militias, Supremacists, Klansmen, Communists & Others

American Extremists: Militias, Supremacists, Klansmen, Communists & Others
by John George, Laird M. Wilcox
Click to Purchase or see further Reviews
"This consideration of militias, supremacists, klansmen and others examines the foundations of hate crimes and movements which are on the fringe of social acceptance and American politics. From social and psychological analysis of individuals who join such movements to summaries of the history of various movements since the 1960s, this provides an excellent account." Read More...
