Fanaticism, Racism, and Rage Online - Corrupting the Digital Sphere


Fanaticism, Racism, and Rage Online is a critical exploration of digital hate culture and its myriad infiltrations into the modern online community. The book examines radical movements that have emerged both on the fringes of the Internet, as well as throughout the web's most popular spaces where extremist voices now intermix with mainstream politics and popular culture. This investigation brings to light the different forms of extremist culture on the web, from the blatant hate websites, to the much more invasive faux-social networks, racist political blogs, and pseudo-scientific domains.

Adam Klein is Assistant Professor of Communication Studies at Pace University, USA.  His work on radical voices in media and politics has been published in Communication Theory and Communication Monographs. He has also been a guest speaker on WNYC's The Takeaway, and a contributor to the scholarly news site The Conversation. His articles have appeared in The New RepublicBusiness Insider, and Raw Story.
