Imagine. You're alone. Trapped in a pub with soccer hooligans, paramilitaries connected to a violent white-power music scene, as their gang leader is sentenced for murder. Or unmasked in a hotel in North Carolina, by henchmen of the world's most infamous neo-nazi. And then get invited to a gathering of Holocaust deniers in Beirut. You meet a US Presidential candidate, once revered by the white supremacists you've just befriended. Then encounter the political zealots rising within the heart of Europe. These are just some of the events that award-winning writer Nick Ryan describes from his six-year journey into the terrifying arena of white nationalism. Moving from the backstreets and pubs of London, to international terrorist cells in Scandinavia, and onwards to the smiling zealots of the USA and Europe, this text unravels the chilling story behind the growth of right-wing extremism - told through the lives of those living it.
