Race, Gender, and White Supremacy

Book - 1998

The voice and writings of white supremacists provide the basis for Abby Ferber's provocative critique of America's most extreme form of racism. Using excerpts and illustrations from such rarely seen publications as National Vanguard, White Patriot, and White Power, this new book explores the world of white supremacists and the way they imagine racial and gender identity. Ferber examines their belief that white men are becoming victims, and their response to this threat: the reassertion of white male power. This book provides a history of race as a concept, as well as an account of the white supremacist movement, including such groups as the Ku Klux Klan, the Neo-Nazis, and skinheads. Ferber puts this movement into a wider context, arguing that, in important respects, white supremacist ideology resembles that of the mainstream by sharing basic assumptions about race and gender. White Man Falling is a startling portrait of the perception that white masculinity is in crisis and white supremacist attempts to reassert dominance. The end picture is one that holds serious repercussions not only for the future of the white man, but for all people.
