Just as Donald Trump's victorious campaign for the US presidency shocked the world, the seemingly sudden national prominence of white supremacists, xenophobes, militia leaders, and mysterious "alt-right" figures mystifies many. But the American extreme right has been growing steadily in number and influence since the 1990s with the rise of patriot militias. Following 9/11, conspiracy theorists found fresh life; and in virulent reaction to the first black US president, militant racists have come out of the woodwork.

Slightly stilted and robotic narration marrs an otherwise well written and fact-dense work. Many chapters required a restart as the narrator's choice of tone caused the narration to become indistinguishable and difficult to focus on.
