INTELWIRE Resources on Right-Wing and Racist Extremism

In the current U.S. and European political climate, there are significant concerns about the resurgence of right-wing extremism. Here's a list of resources on the subject available on this site and derived from my recent (and not so recent) body of work.

ACADEMIC RESEARCH 

The Turner Legacy: The Storied Origins and Enduring Impact of White Nationalism’s Deadly Bible
The Turner Diaries, the infamous racist dystopian novel by neo-Nazi William Luther Pierce, has inspired more than 200 murders since its publication in 1978. This paper documents the books that directly and indirectly inspired Turner and examines the extensive violence that the novel has inspired.

Nazis vs. ISIS on Twitter
White nationalists are thriving on Twitter and outperforming the Islamic State, which has been notorious for its success using social media, in both recruitment and messaging. A comparitive study of metrics and messaging. 

What Sovereign Citizens Believe
Members of the sovereign citizen movement are increasingly in the news for their violent confrontations with law enforcement, but their confusing ideology can be difficult to understand. This paper explains in simple language what sovereigns believe, and where those beliefs originated.

A 2012 study of white nationalist use of Twitter, and the introduction of new methods for measuing influence and in-groupness. 

A look at government infiltration of antigovernment movements during the 1990s, and some of the troubling dimensions of these operations. 

ARTICLES 

How Donald Trump Won the White Nationalist Vote
Donald Trump wasn't an obvious choice to champion white nationalism in national politics. How he convinced skeptical racists that he was their candidate for president.

The Turner Diaries and the Alt Right
Before there was an alt-right, there was The Turner Diaries. First published nearly 40 years ago, the infamous dystopian novel depicts a fictional white nationalist revolution culminating in global genocide. The book has inspired both violence and ideological change among white supremacists in its decades of history.

BOOKS

"...smart, granular analysis..."

ISIS: The State of Terror
"Jessica Stern and J.M. Berger's new book, "ISIS," should be required reading for every politician and policymaker... Their smart, granular analysis is a bracing antidote to both facile dismissals and wild exaggerations... a nuanced and readable account of the ideological and organizational origins of the group." -- Washington Post

"...a timely warning..."

Jihad Joe: Americans Who Go to War in the Name of Islam:
"At a time when some politicians and pundits blur the line between Islam and terrorism, Berger, who knows this subject far better than the demagogues, sharply cautions against vilifying Muslim Americans. ... It is a timely warning from an expert who has not lost his perspective." -- New York Times
