Abstract:

This eye-opening journey into the Far Right establishes a network of radicals, religious fanatics, and neo-nazis stretching across the United States: survivalists in the Ozarks, violent tax protesters in Kansas, radical farmers in Colorado, the KKK, the NAAWP, skinheads, and the founder of Elohim City (who may have been in contact with Timothy McVeigh). These are the American "patriots"--Nurtured on rage and gall, bent on vengeance, and heavily armed, who see themselves.

As "Dragons of God." Veteran journalist Vincent Coppola goes inside, hears their talk, discovers the forces behind their foment: their economic dispossession, the tidal wave of immigration displacing them in the marketplace, diminishing opportunity, a federal government with its back turned (or worse). Dragons of God takes us into a forbidding country, but one we can no longer ignore.
