Read in July, 1996

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 establishment, so to speak, and as he matured and saw the senseless prejudice and violence of what he was doing for what it really was, he got out of there. A fascinating look at the rise of Neo-Nazism in Germany (funded by Americans, by the way), and about one young man's discovery of his self.
