Availability: Ready to download

American Skinheads is the first criminological analysis of organized hate crime violence.

Mark Hamm presents historical specificity for a modern theory of hate crime, then rigorously tests the theory with interview data derived from skinheads who have committed an array of violent acts against persons because of their race, religion, or sexual preference--people who are members of the classic outgroups of American society. Part One traces the roots of the Skinhead Nation through the Beats, Mods, Hippies, and Punks in London, and then examines the rise of the Neo-Nazi Skinheads in the United States, including a look at Neo-Nazi offshoots (Romantic Violence, The Aryan Youth Movement), recruiters (Tom Metzger), and recruitment tools (W.A.R. Magazine and Hotline, electronic mail, Race and Reason), and appearances on the Oprah Winfrey and Geraldo Rivera shows. In Part Two, Hamm discusses the accepted sociological perspectives on terrorist youth subcultures (not gangs), then presents findings of his own study of 36 skinheads, including social and economic characteristics, psychological profiles, the role of skinhead girls, use of drugs and weapons, satanism, and neo-fascism. Part Three assesses the future for American Neo-Nazism and recommends steps for preventing skinhead terrorism.

    An idiosyncratic study of Neo-Nazi skinheads combining theories and social science survey and interviews done with 36 active skinheads across the U.S. Some of his readings of scholarship are a bit reductive, and he makes some bizarre statements. Despite this, he also draws from a very wide range of literature, bringing together BCCCS analysis of subcultures, Authoritarian Personality research, and criminology of deviance. He also refers to activist research on the Skinheads that rarely appears i An idiosyncratic study of Neo-Nazi skinheads combining theories and social science survey and interviews done with 36 active skinheads across the U.S. Some of his readings of scholarship are a bit reductive, and he makes some bizarre statements. Despite this, he also draws from a very wide range of literature, bringing together BCCCS analysis of subcultures, Authoritarian Personality research, and criminology of deviance. He also refers to activist research on the Skinheads that rarely appears in academic literature, including reports by the John Brown Anti-Klan Committee.

    A fascinating read. Successfully incorporates theories of deviance with fieldwork. Although out-of-date now by the standards of the white-supremacist movement, which has changed drastically since the advent of the internet, it will take a long time for this thoughtful book to outlive its usefulness as a base text on criminology. A seminal treatise in the literature on white supremacy and hate crime.
