Right-wing extremism in America has had an established presence from the 1930s through the present day. The election of America's first African-American president and the resuscitation of "big government" policymaking have stimulated a reaction from, and a reemergence of, right-wing extremists, Neo-Nazis, racist skinheads, and white supremacists. Unfortunately, it seems Americans are still living in an age of extremism.

The Encyclopedia of Right-Wing Extremism in Modern American History provides useful, authoritative information about these groups and their histories, covering conservative extremism from the 1930s onward, such as white supremacist groups and neo-Nazis, Christian Identity and other right-wing religious movements, and anti-American government extremists. An introductory overview, insightful conclusion chapter, and useful, up-to-date bibliography are also included.

This guy doesn't do his research very well. I was mentioned in his book. 1. I attended Texas A&M at the age of 41. He stated I attended Texas A&M after high school. I did not graduate high school at age 40.
Also I never made a fortune in the pallet business. But then again anyone making over minimum wage to these lefties makes a fortune.
