Black Sun examines neo-fascist ideology, showing how hate groups, militias and conspiracy cults attempt to gain influence. Based on interviews and extensive research into underground groups, it documents the Nazi and fascist sects that have sprung up from the 1970s through to the 1990s and examines the mentality and motivation of these far-right extremists. The result is a detailed, grounded portrait. The reader encounters devotional Hitler cults, Aryan mystics, racist skinheads, Nazi satanists and Heavy Metal music fans. Goodrick-Clark casts these movements as a new form of Western religious heresy, and a dangerous one.
