A record-high number of hate groups are operating within the United States today. Fueled by fears of immigration and the nation's shifting demographics, these groups vilify others based on race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and gender identity. This book examines white supremacism and other ideologies that motivate these groups. It also explores why hate groups and extremists pose a clear danger to democracy.
