Blood in the Face: The Ku Klux Klan, Aryan Nations, Nazi Skinheads, and the Rise of a New White Culture

Front Cover
Thunder's Mouth Press, 1990 - Social Science - 203 pages
A pipe bomb in Seattle ... an armored car hijacking in California ... the high-stepping stomp of slam-dancing skinheads in Dallas ... & the bullet-ridden body of a talk show host in Denver. These are the harbingers of a new American culture-a culture that is "tight, right, & white." Blood in the Face is the first book to expose the racist far-right movements of America & Europe-movements whose participants range from armed underground extremists to mainstream lobbyists & state legislators. It tells their story from the inside out, in interviews, photos, recruiting pamphlets, cartoons, rants, sermons, threats, police reports, & famous last words before the final shootouts. Village Voice political correspondent James Ridgeway highlights the words & artifacts of the racist far right, & details the movement's volatile history & rapid expansion in the last decade, making Blood in the Face the most current & comprehensive survey to date of a culture that is too powerful-and too much a part of American culture-to be ignored or dismissed.
