Summary, etc.:
"From Portland to Berkeley to Washington, D.C., a far-left revolutionary movement calling itself 'antifa' has organized mass violence on the streets of major American cities, attacking conservatives, Trump supporters, and police. Infamous for its 'black block,' the tactic of dressing head-to-toe in black to commit crimes, antifa militants organize to destroy property, beat people, and intimidate their opposition into silence. Their explosive violence on the streets of American cities has even captured the attention of federal U.S. authorities, who warn of more attacks. This, antifa claims, is all done in the name of fighting 'fascism.' But as Andy Ngo personally experienced himself when he was beaten by Portland antifa militants and left with a traumatic brain injury in June 2019, antifa has little to do with 'anti-fascism.' Rather, it is a far-left violent extremist ideology and movement set on undermining Western governments and destroying the freedoms guaranteed in a liberal democracy. But where did this political phenomenon originate, and how exactly does it organize? Unmasked maps the historical roots of this violent extremist movement from its beginnings as a Communist paramilitary group in Germany during the interwar years to now a growing American phenomenon with support from the media and even mainstream political figures. Its supporters claim the movement has no organizational structure, but for the first time, newly acquired secret documents reveal how Portland's Rose City Antifa, America's oldest, most violent, and most influential antifa chapter, functions as a cell. using a sophisticated process of recruitment, indoctrination, and radicalization, antifa's followers are taught violent and nonviolent strategies to further their political agenda. But Unmasked isn't just a one-of-a-kind investigation into antifa. In his quest for justice, the author has had to explore the lived experiences of his parents, who suffered through Communist prison camps run by the Vietnamese government after the Fall of Saigon. In a twist of irony, Ngo's parents fled the Socialist Republic only for their son to later be violently confronted with a related, virulent strain of revolutionary leftist politics in their adopted home. Antifa is not merely a fringe movement of radicals wreaking havoc in a handful of cities. They are a harbinger of American society, the canary in the coal mine of a coming disorder, if we allow it." --Provided by publisher.
