Summary

The airwaves in America are being used by armed militias, conspiracy theorists, survivalists, the religious right, white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and other radical groups to reach millions with their messages of hate and fear. Waves of Rancor examines the origin, nature, and impact of right-wing electronic media, including radio, television, cable, the Internet, and even music CDs. Waves of Rancor also features exclusive interviews with far-right and extreme-right leaders, including David Duke, a former leader of the Ku Klux Klan and founder of the largest Klan organization today, the Knights of the KKK; James Green, founder and "major general" of the Aggressive Christianity Missions Training Corps, whose radio program, "Battle Cry," is carried on international short-wave by the World Wide Christian Radio network; and Tom Valentine of the Liberty Lobby - an organization that attempts to "put as populist or as friendly a face on neo-Nazism as it can.".

The authors also present the work of groups working to counter the efforts of these right-wing groups, such as the Southern Poverty Law Center, the Anti-Defamation League, the Coalition to Halt Hate Radio, and Political Research Associates.
