The book provides a comprehensive history of the ideas and ideologues associated with the racial fascist tradition in Britain. It charts the evolution of white racial nationalism in Britain as a political manifestation, from its origins amongst a range of pro-Nazi groupuscules in the 1930s, to the margins of the mainstream reached by the British National Party (BNP) at the peak of its powers in 2009.
It charts this history through the prism of its principal leaders and the movements with which they were associated, in order to study the evolution of its racial ideology from overtly biological conceptions of 'white supremacy' through 'racial nationalism' and latterly to 'cultural' arguments regarding 'ethno-nationalism'.
Drawing on extensive archival research and often obscure primary texts and propaganda as well as the official records of the British government and its security services, this is the definitive account of fascism in Britain and will be essential reading for all students and scholars of race relations, extremism and fascism.
"Saving a White Knight" is an erotic story dealing with the effects of university social politics on men in the United States. University Professor Russell Patton hates himself, and he does not even know it. Known to others as a white knight, Russell, suffering from stress and frequent headaches, lives his life in a shroud of political correctness, unable to see beyond the boundaries. Sometimes, the headaches become too painful and the stress too intense, and Russell sneaks away guiltily for a 'happy ending' massage on the other side of town. A series of events, beginning with a false discrimination complaint, force Russell to examine his life and conditioned beliefs. The novella serves as an indictment of political correctness, conformity and social culture on United States university campuses, but it is also romantic and erotic with plenty of graphic sex scenes. "Saving a White Knight" is ultimately a coming-of-age story for men.
"We tell our story in words," says Jacqueline Hoefer. "Whatever we experience of joy or hope or misery, we try to find words to say what is happening to us, not at a moment of high emotion but afterward. We remember an old man looking out at a winter garden, a walk in a wood on a snowy evening, a dog hiding under a couch, and in finding the right words to interpret even small events, we discover what our lives, and perhaps the lives of other, have come to mean. "The telling is surely of interest to ourselves and may be to others. That is why, I think, many people write poetry. It is certainly why I write poetry." *** JACQUELINE HOEFER's publications include "Imagining the Garden," a book of poems; "Weather Songs," three poems set to music by Lanham Deal; and critical essays on contemporary writers, among them, Samuel Beckett, Harold Pinter and Norman Mailer. Her latest book is "A More Abundant Life, New Deal Artists and Public Art in New Mexico," also published by Sunstone Press. Mrs. Hoefer received a Ph.D. in American literature from Washington University, St. Louis, Missouri, and in the early 1960s taught at the University of California, Berkeley, and at San Francisco State University. In 1967, she joined her husband Peter Hoefer in starting Hoefer Scientific Instruments, a San Francisco company specializing in producing instruments for biological research. After Peter Hoefer's death in 1987, she carried on as chief executive officer.
