Fragment:

The freedoms guaranteed by our Bill of Rights have allowed a simmering subculture of political fringe groups to develop and even to flourish in America, as they have in no other nation. These radical associations - sometimes dangerous, sometimes merely quirky - illuminate a dark part of the American psyche. In this encyclopedic work, John George and Laird Wilcox present a thorough and fair assessment of extremist groups on the periphery of the American political system. The authors begin by surveying the history of the extremist trend in America prior to 1960. They then delineate the general characteristics of extremism on both ends of the political spectrum, relate extremism to constitutional principles, and analyze the factors that motivate fringe-group members. The bulk of the book is devoted to an in-depth discussion of more than forty separate groups from the extreme right and left. The authors examine each group's history, beliefs, and current activities. The book concludes with a fascinating appendix on the use of fake quotes and fabricated documents, a common ploy of many extremist organizations.
