When WEB OF HATE was first published in 1994, it caused a storm of controversy, receiving excellent reviews and reaching the number two position on THE GLOBE AND MAIL bestseller list.
In 1995, when the trade paper edition of the book was released, there was only one web site devoted to racial hatred. Now there are at least 3000 web sites all over the world-and no regulations governing their vitriolic content. Even more shocking, two of those web sites operate unfettered from Toronto.
Warren Kinsella has now updated his extraordinary insider's view of the Far Right in Canada to include an investigation of Internet hate groups and the ease with which they operate in our unregulated Internet environment. These are organizations whose previously marginal influence has exploded over the Internet, giving them a global voice and support. Kinsella makes a strong and convincing argument for Internet regulation, showing how groups like the Aryan Nations, the Ku Klux Klan and the Heritage Front are reaching out to students and even children on the Net.
Combining extensive first-person interviews with original investigative research, the updated edition of WEB OF HATE is an even more disturbing portrait of a movement that is spreading like a contagion throughout Canada and the world. The devastation it leaves in its wake will have a far-reaching impact on all of us.
