The American Nazi Party. Skinheads. The Aryan Nations. Black Metal. The Ku Klux Klan. Christian Identity. These and other white power groups are sensationalized in the press, policed by private watchdog groups, infiltrated by the government, universally demonized and feared. But who are the white power movement's members and sympathizers? What are their beliefs and their motivations? How do they operate and communicate in a society so antagonistic to their goals? What kind of threat do they pose?

Letting the radical racist right speak for themselves, Jeffrey Kaplan has created an indispensable reference volume. The Encyclopedia of White Power presents the movement's many facets in the U.S. and Europe since World War II. The first half of the Encyclopedia is made up of over 100 in-depth entries -- many of them essay-length -- and includes several entries by former and current movement activists. Entries by scholars and activists are written, as far as possible, in a value-free manner in order topresent the movement without distortion. The second half brings together original resources from the movement, each prefaced and placed in context by the editor. These documents, often available nowhere else, are invaluable for researchers. An introduction places the volume in context of larger scholarly issues and includes the editor's own reflections on researching the movement. Cross-references and an index make the information easily accessible. For scholars of race, religion, or politics, the Encyclopedia of White Power is an essential resource.
