Excerpt

From A Hundred Little Hitlers :

The home to which Kenneth Mieske returned the night of the killing is a low-ceilinged, pine-veneered basement he shares with Julie Belec in her mother and stepfather's house in a blue-collar area of southwest Portland. A collection of anti-black and antisemitic posters, leaflets, and fliers nearly covers one wall. Some, like the drawing of a microwave with the slogan "Jew Dwarfs! There is an oven in YOUR future," are standard issue in Ken and Julie's circle, but others reflect more of an individual search. On a table by the bed are a few well-thumbed books about their favorite Nazis-Mengele, his and Speer, hers. There is a swastika made of gum wrappers. Gory posters for Ken's own band, Machine, and the well-framed group photographs of East Side White Pride confirm that Ken and Julie are not outsiders to this world, children plastering their bedrooms with posters of stars they will never meet: they are members of it, they are in it, it is their world.

"Review" by , "Was it a racially motivated crime, or was it a street fight? You might be surprised what side Elinor Langer, a terrifically unabashed liberal and the author of the biography Josephine Herbst, comes down on. In this probing, transfixing book, the result of a tireless decade-and-a-half of research, Langer explores the Nazi-aligned skinhead movement in Portland and the culture that created it." (read the entire Esquire review)
"Review" by , "An extraordinary book, written with passion, grace, and wisdom. The murder at its center is a reflection not just of racism in the United States, but of something much more widespread. Langer has taken one act of violence, looked at it carefully and courageously, and illuminated a whole moral universe."
"Review" by , "Langer offers a riveting story of the murder and events leading up to it, including a surprisingly moving account of the troubled life of Ken Mieske, who wielded the fatal baseball bat, and an important short history of the skinhead movement in this country." Publishers Weekly
"Review" by , "The reader will better understand the disaffection that leads to such one-sided thinking and the gap between truth and justice in the American legal system."
"Synopsis" by , Includes bibliographical references (p. [363]-381) and index.
