Abstract

Over the past two decades, violent jihadis have generated substantial attention in the United States. At the same time, other types of violent extremists have been relatively neglected. Far-right terrorism, for example, has a long history in the United States and stems from a broad constellation of networks, organizations, and individuals. In this chapter, we discuss the ebb and flow of US right-wing terror focusing on the history of this type of violence and the different sectors that constitute the far right. We conclude by discussing possibilities for future research.
