School Library Journal Review

WAR--White Aryan Resistance, CASH--Chicago Area Skinheads, CPDL--Christian Patriots Defense League. David Duke. Lyndon LaRouche. Louis Farrakhan. These are a few names of groups and individuals from both the extreme left and extreme right. They organize, spread their messages, recruit new members, use disruptive and frightening tactics--all within the guaranteed freedoms, privileges, and protection of the United States Constitution. An overview of how powerful the extremist groups are, their history, profiles of their membership and leaders, and their activities, which are sometimes violent and criminal, are included in this informative book. An extensive bibliography supports the clear, well-organized text. A unique resource for beginning research.-- Lydia Champlin, Beachwood City Schools, OH (c) Copyright 2010.
