BOOK REVIEW: MEMOIR CHARTS JOURNEY FROM HATE AND VIOLENCE TO RADICAL COMPASSION


For years, Vancouver writer Tony McAleer was a violent, angry racist skinhead, a leader in street attacks on gay men and an advocate of Holocaust denial. For a decade and a half, he not only led street violence, he organized, recruited new members for the noxious White Aryan Resistance movement and pioneered in the use of new technology to spread racism.


And yet now McAleer heads up the non-profit organization Life After Hate, dedicated to helping men and women who want to exit from hate groups. His new book, The Cure for Hate, tells the story of his startling metamorphosis. At a time when white supremacist organizing and violence seem to be flourishing around the world and on the Web, with synagogues, mosques and black churches suffering murderous attacks, this is a timely and important book.
