If skined88@hotmail.com had seen the video version of the book, he would see that Ridgeway did extensive interviews with neo-Nazis, and in fact let them speak for themselves.
The book itself is interesting, but the video shows these people up for the clowns they really are.

Blood in the Face is a mere inkling of what the "far right" is about and what it does. While the author does a great job at organization and use of pictures to convey his information, the reader isn't really going to get enough information. This book is just an introduction to the movement. A reader will have to do much more reading if they truly want to find out about what makes these people tick.

A good overview. I recommend it to anyone wanting to get a 101 introduction to the white supremacy movement.

Ridgeway was given unprecedented access to some of the most hated and revered figures on the racist right in the preparation of this study. Of particular interest are both the flow chart that introduces the book, showing the connections between hate groups past and present and the sections on the Oklahoma City bombing.

Like so many other things in today's society, racism, and especially racially motivated crimes, seem very distant to most of us. An occasional tasteless joke around the water cooler may be the closest 99% of us get to the terrifying world of the racist underground.
Many books have tried to reverse this ignorance, but many (if not most) have failed. The reason is simple: Hundreds of pages of text don't bring us any closer to the scenes of the crimes, or closer to the people who are either involved in the white supremist movement or who have been affected by it.
But "Blood in the Face" is different. It has graphics on almost every page, mostly White Aryan Resistance (WAR) propaganda posters, and less frequently photos of David Duke, Henry Ford, and other well-known racists and anti-Semites, threatening letters, etc. This is also a primary-source-laden text. This serves to hammer home the point that racism does not just exist in the Deep South. It is EVERYWHERE: South, North, East, West, and especially in the minds of those who perpetuate such garbage every day.
That said, this book is an INTRODUCTION to the culture of white supremacy. It dwells on the surface of the culture and selected individual organizations, occasionally delving into history. But it doesn't do a good job at all of providing a CONTEXT for the terrible things it describes. "Blood in the Face" is a solid introduction for those looking to learn more about racism and the white supremacy movement as a whole, but for discussions of individual people and groups, you must look elsewhere.
