DESCRIPTION:

QAnon conspiracy theorists, white supremacists, armed militias, radical right, icons of anger,

America seen from the right is a galaxy of acronyms and extra-parliamentary political formations as unacknowledged, as active and dangerous. 

The assault of a part of them in the Congress of the United States on the morning of January 6, 2021 unveiled them in small part, shedding light just on the "Donald Trump people". This book maps the origins of the phenomenon and explains without filters or partisanship what is happening in American society and politics, 

It also contains illustrations of the symbols, logos and flags of the alt-right galaxy.

REVIEWS:

A thoughtful, albeit highly legible book, resulting of an in-depth analysis, and offering precious tools to understand the very topical issue, of the so-called far-right, or radical  American right.  _ Gilda Bicêtre; “Leoni's reportage has the merit of shedding light on the dark corners of American right-wing extremism with a pacy exciting narrative formula.”  _ Marco Di Geronimo for Flanerí 13-05-2021; “…also describing the main bloody events that have involved the far right in recent years until the raid on the Capitol in Washington.” _ Ciavula 19-09-2021
