Not for the faint hearted, this memoir of Ingo Hasselbach, a neo-Nazi kingpin-turned tolerance activist, presents a very vivid and unnerving picture of the state of Germany immediately following reunification. There's a lot that's recommendable about this book, not limited to: (a) the insightful description of Hasselbach's thought process as he was growing up, and why he turned to an extreme right-wing ideology; (b) the chapters describing how he attracted disaffected young men (it seems there a...more
A candid autobiography by the young man who was briefly the leader of the Neo-Nazi movement in the early 1990's. He makes no apologies for his actions, which included a number of fistfights, acts of vandalism, and even a bombing, and he rather gleefully details the silly and pointless tasks that he would come up with to initiate new members. (Like writing essays about Joan Baez's music.) Having no truly deep-seated Nazi sympathies, he was really just looking for a way to stick it to the establis...more
A very candid and insightful story from one of the top nazi's of the late eighties and early nineties. While this book is around 15 years old now, it's depth and brevity of the inner workings of the modern neo-nazi movement is quite astounding, as it would be from someone who has had first hand experience of it and helping to build it.

Worth reading if your a serious scholar of the subject or a layman. It's also a well written and accessible insight into a very dangerous phenomena.
Absolutely captivating. Highly educational and deeply thought-provoking. The places and characters presented in this memoir are more vivid and fascinating than the ones in the vast majority of novels I've ever read, and I grew to feel that I - for better or worse - knew them all on some personal level. Hasselbach's story is as remarkable as it is relevant.
An interesting book with a lot of new information for me about the state of affairs in Germany post-WWII.

Very creepy. Especially how much the anarchists and the hooligans reminded me of the kids from A Clockwork Orange.

The American who passed out most of the hate propaganda was strange to hear about. I suppose you'd think it was going to be Germany where it started.
This book was so eye-opening. This is the story of the head of the neo-nazi party in Germany and how he was able to get out of it. He explains what drew him into the group and how he was practically brainwashed. Very interesting.

This is my desert island book, the one I would save in a fire, the one I recommend to everyone. It embodies the best and worst possibilities of human nature.
Absolutely intense life story.
