-- why far-right groups are growing and becoming more dangerous
-- how white supremacist groups target youth, the unemployed and convicts for recruitment -- and how they have infiltrated the armed forces
-- what governments and law enforcement agencies can do to combat this problemTheir faces are twisted into masks of hate; their mission is to destroy. It's just the nightly news again, showing the latest actions of another neo-Nazi group in Germany venting their frustrations on newly arrived immigrants. It couldn't happen here in Canada. Or could it?Web of Hate argues that it could happen -- in fact, it is happening -- in a country where we pride ourselves on our tolerance of all races, religions and lifestyles. In a book that is explosive in its revelations and meticulous and original in its investigative research, Warren Kinsella documents the actions of far-right groups across Canada, from the Ku Klux Klan and Heritage Front to the Aryan Nations and racist skinheads. He profiles key leaders such as Wolfgang Droege, Terry Long, Ernst Zundel and Doug Christie, showing that it is not just their attacks on native peoples, Jews, Sikhs, homosexuals and pro-choice activists that make these hate-mongers so deadly; it is their ability to circumvent the law, to infiltrate more moderate political parties and the armed forces, and to join forces with their German and U.S. counterparts.Using first-hand interviews -- from new recruits at a paramilitary training camp and an upper-middle-class, young but powerful new racist minister, to skinheads who were at the Oka standoff -- Kinsella reveals that far-right groups, though small in numbers, are increasingly sophisticated andeffective in promoting their messages of hate.Controversial and disturbing, Web of Hate will awaken Canadians to the reality of the far right in this country.
