A Hundred Little Hitlers the Death of a Black Man, the Trial of a White Racist, and the Rise of the Neo-Nazi Movement in America, Langer, Elinor
1 Langer, Elinor A Hundred Little Hitlers the Death of a Black Man, the Trial of a White Racist, and the Rise of the Neo-Nazi Movement in America
On Saturday, November 12, 1988, a group of Portland, Oregon skinheads known as East Side White Pride met for an afternoon of beer and racial banter. That night, they handed out white supremacist newspapers, went to a party, and got thrown out of a friend's apartment. A short while later, three of the skinheads encountered three Ethiopians; a street fight broke out and Kenneth Mieske brutally beat Mulugeta Seraw with a bat. In the early morning hours, Seraw died. Drawing on more than ten years of interviews and research, the author takes the Seraw case as the occasion for a thorough exploration of the Nazi-inspired racialist movement in the U. S. She vividly reconstructs the world of the skinheads, in Portland and nationally: Their origins in the punk scene, basement shrines to Nazi power, moments of glory on Oprah. Compelling, disturbing and important, this book is at once an epic story of American racism and justice, and a taut investigation into powerful social forces that loom ever more dangerous today. Includes notes and index.; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
