A KIRKUS Reviews "Best Book" of 2012 ...
" ... a deeply researched, fascinating history of the role that organized hatred has played in American politics. The New Hate takes readers on a surprising, often shocking, sometimes bizarrely amusing tour through the swamps of nativism, racism, and paranoia that have long thrived on the American fringe. Arthur Goldwag shows us the parallels between the hysteria about the Illuminati that wracked the new American Republic in the 1790s and the McCarthyism that roiled the 1950s, and he discusses the similarities between the anti–New Deal forces of the 1930s and the Tea Party movement today. He traces Henry Ford’s anti-Semitism and the John Birch Society’s 'Insiders' back to the notorious Protocols of the Elders of Zion and he relates white supremacist nightmares about racial pollution to nineteenth-century fears of papal plots. Written with verve and wit, this lively history is indispensible reading for anyone who wants to understand the recent re-ascendance of extremism in American politics." - Starred Review, KIRKUS
"An informative and lively history of organized hate groups and their role in U.S. politics. ... Goldwag combines his research with contemporary analysis to explain what conspiracy theories all have in common and to show how the new hate is the same as the old, though it’s now 'hiding in plain sight'. ... Exhaustively well researched and passionately written. ... ."- Publishers Weekly

LA Progressive: "A comprehensive history of hatred ... fueled by a brand of ignorance so unbelievably irrational, so egregiously wrong, so utterly antihuman, that it staggers the imagination of thinking adults."
