Summary
In "White Power, White Pride!" The White Separatist Movement in the United States, readers encounter a groundbreaking effort, the first book to combine a comprehensive examination of the white separatist phenomenon with wide-ranging original research. In delineating the major actors, organizations, and events of the movement, the authors draw on the tools of resource mobilization theory, political process models, and New Social Movement theory, as well as labeling framework in the study of deviance. A historical overview surveys the movement's growth over time and then zeroes in on four groups of contemporary note: the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis, Christian Identity, and Skinheads. In-depth discussions explore areas of agreement and disagreement among groups and consider countermovement, or watchdog, organizations such as the Southern Poverty Law Center, the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith, and the Coalition for Human Dignity. Given special attention is movement terminology, including distinctions between "white separatist" and "white supremacist" and between "racialist" and "racist." Investigated, too, are the strategies - both protest and mainstream approaches to power - employed by the various groups. The study concludes with a consideration of the white separatist movement within the larger context of U.S. political and economic conditions
