Bring the War Home: The White Power Movement and Paramilitary America
Why this book?
Belew’s book is a sweeping historical account of the impact of the Vietnam War on the rise of unlawful militias and the white power movement. I learned more from reading this book than any other book about the history of the unlawful militia and white power movements in the U.S. It reminded me of how important it is to understand the historical trajectory of the current moment we are in—and of how much a role external and global wars can play on violent mobilization in our own country.
