Fascists Among Us: Online Hate and the Christchurch Massacre

by Jeff Sparrow - £9.99  Scribe Publications (2019)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781912854691 | ISBN 10: 1912854694

The first book to unearth the Christchurch massacre’s fascist roots and examine what it represents and threatens.
 
The massacre of more than fifty worshippers at mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, shocked the world. The murders were not random. They expressed a particular ideology, one that the alleged perpetrator described as ‘fascism’.
 
But what does fascism mean today — and what kind of threat does it pose? Jeff Sparrow traces the history of the far right, showing how fascists have adapted to the new politics of the twenty-first century. Burgeoning in dark places online, contemporary fascism exults in violence and picks its targets strategically. Today, it is Muslims; tomorrow, it will be Jews or gays or Asians.
 
With imitative massacres already occurring around the world, Christchurch must be a wake-up call. This book makes a compelling, urgent case for a new response to an old menace.
