Overall this was uite a good book It starts in the late 60s roughly 1965 but with some material from after Brown v Board and moves up to around 2004 05 I was made familiar with a number of names I hadn’t heard of It was also interesting to see where when and to what extent the crazier wing of the white nationalists intersected with broader conservative politics Answer it is less that a lot of liberals might believe but certainly than the average conservative should be comfortable withThere are some particular strengths to the book Given the controversial nature of the material the book is surprisingly even handed and non polemical in its tone The author’s feelings are obvious but he manages to stand at enough of a distance to give a or less accurate view of things Even startling is his treatment of the religious aspects of the movement which have taught some truly ludicrous things The author fairly represents what they taught doesn’t engage in unnecessary mud slinging but it is still abundantly clear how disastrously wrong these particular people areThe author is also willing to acknowledge when the government mishandled events the movement was involved in His coverage of Ruby Ridge was at least to someone who is only somewhat familiar with the incident both honest and fairThat said its biggest flaw is to occasionally elide the differences between white nationalism and the conservative movement than is warranted In particular his treatment of Pat Buchanan is if not totally unfair at least uncharitable As well his treatment of the Bell Curve may be the sloppiest part of the book He treats it as nothing than a long tome trying to prove the superiority of White I offhandedly mentions that its findings have been refuted and moves on It is well established that the Bell Curve was not primarily about this subject and not intended by its authors to be controversial but this author did not appreciate that contextEven with those issues the book is well worth reading if you are interested in the subject It is however uite long and not the most breezily written history I’ve ever come acrossM
