This book presents ten alarmingly candid interviews by some of the most prominent members of what editors Carol M. Swain and Russ Nieli warn is a growing white nationalist movement in America. The ten people featured in this volume make statements that are sure to shock, amuse, challenge, and provoke the typical reader. Their remarks are of particular value, Swain and Nieli believe, for understanding how the many race-conscious whites who lie outside the integrationist consensus on racial issues in America view developments that have taken place in the United States since the great victories of the civil rights movement in the 1950s and 1960s. If current trends continue, the editors predict, white nationalist ideas will become ever more popular, especially as whites become a diminishing portion of the U.S. population. What is most needed now, Swain and Nieli conclude, is for the claims of white nationalists to be aired in more open public forums, where they can be vigorously challenged and subjected to honest evaluation and refutation.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"There's something there to offend everybody. But I think a lot of it rings true. She so clearly is not saying the academically correct things on every issue. Carol avoids academic correctness at every turn, and that lends some authority to what she says." Kent Syverud, Dean, Vanderbilt University Law School, as quoted by the Tennessean

"This book deserves to be taken very seriously even by those, like myself, who disagree strongly with some of its premises." George M. Fredrickson, Stanford University

"...a courageous book. It is certain to generate controversy. Scholars and concerned citizens may not fully agree with Carol Swain's thought provoking thesis on the rise of white nationalism and its implications for the future of American race relations. However, the force and intensity of her arguments will compel them to take the book seriously." William Julius Wilson, Harvard University

"...provacative and well researched..." Magill's Literary Annual

"It is the great virtue of Carol Swain's work that she is willing to conduct honest inquiry into racial questions and bluntly tell the truth as she finds it. Drawing on the tools of social science as well as her own extraordinary personal experience, she shines a powerful light on issues ranging from crime and illegitimacy to affirmative action and the role of religion in promoting racial harmony. People across the ideological spectrum have a great deal to learn from this thoughtful and courageous scholar." Robert P. George; Princeton University

"This is a disturbing book. Carol Swain bravely describes a world of white nationalists who reject racial integration. But where the establishment ignores these groups, Swain argues that the best response is debate rather than denial. The nationalists draw support because they express widespread white grievances that our leaders refuse to face -especially runaway immigration and affirmative action. Like Jefferson, Swain hears a firebell in the night." Lawrence M. Mead; New York University

"She brings a fresh and vital perspective to any discussion of race relations." The New Leader

"...very strongly recommended for Political Science and Social Issues reference collections and supplemental reading lists." Wisconsin Bookwatch

"...extremely provocative book—marks the arrival of a bold new voice in the American race relations debate." First Things

"[Swain's] willingness to challenge received opinion and defy the expected categories of our stale identity politics is sorely needed if America is ever to have an open and honest debate about race. Swain's book is an important contribution to such a debate and will be of interest to all those, whatever their policy preferences and whatever their race, who wish to see it take place." The Review of Politics
