Are all terrorists male? What role do women play in the spread of hatred? What is the link between gender and hate groups? These provocative questions and more are asked and answered in this fascinating new collection. Home-Grown Hate explores the relationship between gender, racism, and extremism in white supremacist organizations, the militia/patriot movement, skinheads, the Taliban, and more. These original essays by teading scholars in the field examine white supremacists' assumptions about gender roles, Christianity and racism, and the similarities between Al Qaeda and militia movements. Home-Grown Hate is an important and timely contribution that sets the agenda for developing strategies to prevent the further proliferation of hate.
