"Anne Speckhard has interviewed some of the most notorious extremists in America and beyond to produce a stunning insight into their thinking and beliefs. This is not just another book of composite cases; it is a book that takes the reader on a journey into the dark heart of America and the Western world. Homegrown Hate practically puts you in the interview sessions with these men and women of violence. These are stories of dispossession, hatred, exploitation, intense inequality, and cultural violence.Speckhard brings decades of professional expertise studying terrorism to the task of answering many complex questions about extremism.Homegrown Hate is no ordinary book. It challenges the accepted narratives about the issue and raises important and uncomfortable questions about the root causes of extremism in modern society."-John Mooney, The Sunday Times "Timely, incisive reading on the most controversial and fiery subset in the field of terrorism today: domestic extremism."-Ambassador Alberto Fernandez, President of Middle East Broadcasting Networks (MBN) formerly the Coordinator for Strategic Counterterrorism Communications (CSCC) at the U.S. Department of State - USA "Anne Speckhard's new book affords deep insights into the minds and hearts of domestic extremists. Once again, her considerable interviewing skills lay bare the fundamental psychic processes, motivations and thought patterns that turn ordinary people into violent radicals. A must read to anyone who wishes to understand the working of the terrorist mind up close and personal."-Dr. Arie Kruglanski - Distinguished University Professor in Psychology at the University of Maryland - USA "Anne Speckhard did it again! A must-read book. Anne keeps on focusing on subversive activities that seriously undermine democracy. The value of this book lies in the in-depth interviews. There are lessons to be learnt in order to develop and deepen activities to keep society resilient! All of us have a role." -Stephen van den Bosch, Superintendent Dutch National Police, CVE specialist "Dr. Anne Speckhard's firsthand research on behalf of the International Center for the Study of Violent Extremism has taken her face to face with terrorists and extremists around the globe. We have much to learn from her research as we collectively tackle the challenge of extremism and radicalization on our home front. This book will serve as a critical primer to understanding the domestic problems of political and social division that we face as a nation. This book is a must read for anyone interested in truly understanding the scope and depth of extremism within the United States."- Zack Baddorf, Executive Director, Military Veterans in Journalism / Adjunct Professor, NYU "Thirty years in policing has given me a front-row seat to the intersection of policing and politics. I have witnessed the disturbing escalation in rhetoric and violence driven by political polarization. Every word of Homegrown Hate profoundly resonates with me. It is the most insightful and intimate look into the making of a domestic violent extremist I have read. It demystifies indoctrination, details the role of vulnerabilities in exploiting wounded people, and sheds light on how people become willing to do horrific violent acts. Dr. Speckhard's in-depth interviews reveal the disturbing truth of radicalization, like an iceberg, showing the reader the danger that lies unseen below the surface."-Robert King, retired commander of the Portland Police Bureau
"Dr. Speckhard's credentials and psychological background have enabled her to gain access to so
