Barkun discusses contemporary white supremacy, alt-right in Salon

Michael BarkunMichael Barkun, professor emeritus of political science, was featured in the Salon article, "Understanding contemporary white supremacy: Is the alt-right really something new?" "The role of the alt-right in the 2016 campaign, alongside the broader movement of fringe motifs into the mainstream, suggests a political future that once seemed inconceivable: the potential public re-emergence of a white supremacist organization, something not seen in America since the Ku Klux Klan of the 1920s," says Barkun. 06/12/17
