The study’s focus is primarily on militia groups in the Americas and Central Asia.


“Dr. Weeber and his colleagues have succeeded in using a variety of sociological classics to help solidify our understanding of why this ‘antisystemic violence’ is escalating in the United States and around the world. ... If you want a book which explores the etiologies of antisystemic violence in our world today, this is the one for you.” - Gregory A. Clark, Ph.D., Coordinator of Criminal Justice, McNeese State University
