Homeland: Into a World of Hate

By Nick Ryan

Mainstream Publishing 320pp £15.99 order from our bookshop

Homeland tells the story of one man’s gruelling, six-year journey into the heartlands of extremism. Nick Ryan met, interviewed and, in some cases, lived with members of the extreme right in a dozen countries. He delves deep into these far-right groups, travelling across Europe and the USA to reveal how extremists share an ideology, information, contacts and even business interests. However, Homeland is not simply a story of undercover intrigue nor a dry political analysis. It is both a powerful personal odyssey and a social commentary.
