According to Michael Barkun, many white supremacist groups of the radical right are deeply committed to the distinctive but little-recognized religious position known as Christian Identity. In ""Religion and the Racist Right"" (1994), Barkun provided an exploration of the ideological and organizational development of the Christian Identity movement. In this revised edition, he traces the role of Christian Identity figures in the dramatic events of the first half of the 1990s, from the Oklahoma City bombing to the rise of the militia movement to the Freemen standoff in Montana. It also explores the government's evolving response to these challenges to the legitimacy of the state.

Author Biography

Michael Barkun is professor emeritus of political science at the Maxwell School of Syracuse University and is a former FBI consultant in domestic terrorism cases. He is author of five previous books, including Religion and the Racist Right: The Origins of the Christian Identity Movement.
