Alt-America: The Rise of the Radical Right in the Age of Trump
Investigative reporter David Neiwert has been tracking extremists for more than two decades. In Alt-America, he provides a deeply researched and authoritative report on the growth of fascism and far-right terrorism, the violence of which in the last decade has surpassed anything inspired by Islamist or other ideologies in the United States.
"Donald Trump has become a coalescing figure for the many variations of right-wing extremism that have always been woven into the American landscape – the nativists, the paranoid conspiracists, the white supremacists, white nationalists, xenophobes and misogynists – to unite under the banner of a singular charismatic figure,” writes Neiwert. “In doing so, he drew all those elements out of the fringe where they had been relegated for years and drew them directly into the mainstream of American politics.”
