Pressestimmen"Gardell adopts an ethnographic, anthropological approach to his subject, which makes the diverse--and often bizarre--beliefs of his subjects easily accessible... [He] provide[s] a useful, alternative framework for analyzing neo-Nazis and their political brethren..." Los Angeles Times "Gods of the Blood will stand as the definitive work on white racist neopaganism in the United States, a movement virtually invisible until now. Mattias Gardell has gained remarkable access to this secretive religious subculture, mapping its feuds, factions, and rivalries." Michael Barkun, author of Religion and the Racist Right "Gods of the Blood represents the culmination of the author's tireless fieldwork among America's radical right: race activists of every description, denizens of the occult underground, and adherents of a variety of small oppositional religio-political belief systems throughout the United States. Never before has a scholar had the means, the determination, or the unparalleled access which Mattias Gardell has been accorded in the American radical right." Jeffrey Kaplan, author of the Encyclopedia of White Power: A SourceBook on the Radical Racist Right
