Confronting Right Wing Extremism and Terrorism in the USA

By George Michael | Go to book overview

Acknowledgements

Many people have helped in one way or another with this book, which began as my dissertation for a Ph. D. in public policy at George Mason University. I am indebted to those on my committee who reviewed my study and offered their advice and direction, including Francis Fukuyama, James Pfiffner, Chris Hewitt, Walter Laqueur and Seymour Martin Lipset. It was truly an honor to have such distinguished scholars serve on my committee.

I would like to thank several persons and Routledge for their help and guidance. Roger Eatwell and Cas Mudde provided useful feedback on my manuscript. Craig Fowlie and Zoë Boterill helped with administrative issues. Their courtesy and professionalism are much appreciated.

Many of the figures presented in this study were very helpful and offered their insights into this topic. I express my gratitude to the former deputy director of the FBI, Oliver “Buck” Revell and former US Attorney General Edwin Meese. Various representatives from the NGOs were helpful, including Chip Berlet from Political Research Associates, Chris Freeman from the Center for Democratic Renewal, Ken McVay from the Nizkor Project, Mark Potok from the Southern Poverty Law Center, Bill Wassmuth, formerly from the Northwest Coalition Against Malicious Harassment, Todd Ferguson from Anti-Racist Action, and Dr Mark Pitcavage from the Anti-Defamation League. Finally, numerous rightist activists and personalities offered me their insights, including the late Dr William Pierce, Sgt Steven Barry, Tom Metzger, Jared Taylor, Gordon Baum, Kirk Lyons, Harold Covington, Ernst Zündel, Dr Ingrid Rimland, Matthew Hale, Willis Carto, Mike Piper, Pövl Riis-Knudsen, Mark Coterill, John Trochmann, Norm Olson, Thom Robb, Milton John Kleim, Roy Armstrong, Richard Barrett, and Ron Doggett.

Laird Wilcox and the staff at the Wilcox Collection of Contemporary Political Movements in the Kenneth Spencer Research Library at the University of Kansas were most helpful in retrieving important materials used in this study. I strongly recommend that scholars interested in political extremism avail themselves of this valuable research center.

The staff at the FBI’s Freedom of Information Reading Room assisted me in retrieving declassified government files pertaining to this public policy issue.
