The Websites

Abstract

Klein brings readers into the world of 25 of the leading hate websites operating today. Like the Internet itself, the network of online extremism is vast. The hate websites, and ideologies they represent, are presented along a spectrum. Beginning with the most outspoken self-identifying white supremacist sites, to the less obvious faux-social networks and community forums, to the faux-information and research websites, to few domains considered by some to be mainstream political organizations, Klein takes a closer look at a primary function of these sites: recruitment of the Net Generation. He exposes some of the ways that these communities have begun to mimic digital youth culture in their sites that offer social networks, music, games, dating, and forms of self-expression.
