Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The author, a Northwest journalist, allows members of the Patriot militia movement<-->which is largely rooted in the Northwest<-->to speak for themselves, the better to understand the causes that drive their separatist and, occasionally, violent tendencies. Discussion centers on the Freemen siege of Montana in 1996 as a means of introducing the various groups and prominent figures of the movement, as well as the citizens and officials who oppose the activities of militia organizations. The author explains that while many of the movement's claims may seem extremist or outlandish, they are rooted in genuine feelings of disenfranchisment with and marginalization from American politics and culture.
