Them: Adventures with Extremists - Jon Ronson

"In this eye-opening portrait of extremist groups--75 percent of which are located in this country--Jon Ronson takes readers inside the hearts and minds of people often summarily dismissed as kooks and crazies."

Jon Ronson is not only a witty and talented writer, he's also a very brave man. The one thing most of these extremist groups seem to have in common is their anti-semitism, and Ronson is Jewish. No way you'd catch me venturing into an Aryan Nation compound (and I'm half German). Once again Ronson made me laugh and shake my head in amazement. Life is definitely stranger than fiction.
