The Radical Right represents a serious threat to traditional American values like liberty, free speech, religious tolerance, social and civil equality and equal justice for all citizens. They want to dismantle all these traditions and eliminate any prospect of pluralism and diversity in American society and government. After years of being considered a lunatic fringe, the Radical Right has now attracted the attention of authors and scholars in many disciplines, writing in both the popular press and specialist publications.

The Radical Right is incredibly rich, well organized, and fanatical in its determination to destroy American freedoms. The books mentioned here will inform you more fully about the methods and objectives of these purveyors of prejudice, bigotry and hatred.
