Editorial Reviews

Choice
Readers will appreciate the succinctness and logic of Crothers's argument. Recommended.
Mobilization
Rage on the Right is well written and would be suitable for an undergraduate course. Academics will find it useful if they are interested in an analysis of the ideology of the movement.
Charles Lockhart
Crothers' analysis of the contemporary militia movement—as representing extreme versions of certain quintessentially American myths and values—is the best currently available.
Chip Berlet
This explanation of the armed militias is critical while not demonizing, and scholarly while remaining readable.
