Book Overview
A Guardian Best Book of the Year A PopMatters Best Book of the Year A gripping study of white power... Explosive. -- New York Times Helps explain how we got to today's alt-right. --Terry Gross, Fresh Air The white power movement in America wants a revolution. Returning to a country ripped apart by a war they felt they were not allowed to win, a small group of Vietnam veterans and disgruntled civilians who shared their virulent anti-communism and potent sense of betrayal concluded that waging war on their own country was justified. The command structure of their covert movement gave women a prominent place. They operated with discipline, made tragic headlines in Waco, Ruby Ridge, and Oklahoma City, and are resurgent under President Trump. Based on a decade of deep immersion in previously classified FBI files and on extensive interviews, Bring the War Home tells the story of American paramilitarism and the birth of the alt-right. A much-needed and troubling revelation...The power of Belew's book comes, in part, from the fact that it reveals a story about white-racist violence that we should all already know. -- The Nation Fascinating...Shows how hatred of the federal government, fears of communism, and racism all combined in white-power ideology and explains why our responses to the movement have long been woefully inadequate. -- Slate Superbly comprehensive...supplants all journalistic accounts of America's resurgent white supremacism. --Pankaj Mishra, The Guardian
