The White Separatist Movement in the United States

"White Power, White Pride!"

Although the white separatist movement stereotype is that of a Southern phenomenon tied to an uneducated and disenfranchised segment of men, sociologists Betty A. Dobratz and Stephanie L. Shanks-Meile show that the movement is in reality more complex and multifaceted. To compile this study, the authors interviewed more than 125 white separatists, attended rallies, congresses, and other gatherings, and examined many movement-generated documents. The result is a compelling book that chronicles the history, ideology, and strategies of the white separatist movement.

Reviews

Valuable for its focus on an extreme right-wing movement, a type of movement seldom studied, and for its clear description and application of contemporary social movement theories and concepts.

Endorsements

A comprehensive, timely, and critical examination of the landscape of organized white supremacism in the United States today. This is required reading for anyone who wants to understand how white power groups operate and the threat they pose.

- Kathleen M. Blee, University of Pittsburgh

An outstanding contribution to the literature on right-wing extremism in America. Through their painstaking research, careful analysis, and well-written account, Dobratz and Shanks-Meile have given us a clearer understanding of the men and women who join and perpetuate white racialist groups. A chilling account of a persistent problem.

- Richard G. Braungart, Syracuse University

A unique, timely, rigorously researched, and provocative examination of the white supremacist movement in the United States... This book is a must-read for social movement scholars and students, and for activists in the social justice struggle.

- Walda Katz-Fishman, Howard University

A clearly written, well organized book, which provides extensive information about the complex political sociology of white separatist groups and should be required reading for social scientists interested in the topic.
