Summary

Summary

White supremacy groups are changing the way they recruit new members and the way they operate. Racist websites, video games, and record labels are springing up to entice younger, more educated members. In addition, the organization of the movement is shifting from group meetings to individual activists. This anthology presents new trends in the white supremacy movement in America.

Booklist Review

Gr. 8^-12. Nearly two-thirds of the essays in this volume in the At Issue series concentrate on white supremacy as a threat to American culture; the last few argue for supporting Aryan causes. Leadoff pieces deal with the impact of Timothy McVeigh's bombing in Oklahoma City and the September 11 attacks on New York and Washington, D.C. Many of the pieces have been culled from Web sites or small circulars (one KKK editorial dates back to 1928), not major works, and the opinions stretch toward extremes, sometimes with less than credible support. Nevertheless, the topic is intriguing, and the generally vehement tone of the selections provides much for students to ponder and debate. --Roger Leslie
