In this well-researched and eminently readable narrative, journalist Martin Lee traces the history of neo-Nazism through the past fifty years -- and reveals the growing symbiosis between right-wing groups in Europe and America. From Nazi spymasters in the postwar German intelligence services to Nazi emigres in South America, Lee shows how a well-organized underground network kept memories of the Third Reich alive throughout the Cold War. And while German Nazis necessarily kept a low profile, American groups such as the Holocaust-denying Liberty Lobby openly promoted the fascist agenda.

With the fall of the Berlin Wall, fascism in Europe -- dormant for forty-five years -- began making headlines again. German skinheads, many inspired by neo-Nazi propaganda originating in the U.S., terrorized minorities. And with the Oklahoma City bombing, America's own militia movement served notice that fascist extremism was alive and well on this side of the Atlantic.

Drawing on more than 100 interviews and 300 government documents, Lee has synthesized fifty years of neo-fascism into a compelling -- and alarming -- history, a must-read for anyone troubled by this tenacious strain of hate politics.
