Them: Adventures with Extremists by Jon Ronson
Them: Adventures with Extremists is a romp into the heart of darkness involving twelve-foot lizard-men, PR-conscious Ku Klux Klansmen, Ian Paisley, Hollywood limousines, the legend of Ruby Ridge, Noam Chomsky, a harem of kidnapped sex slaves, David Icke, and Nicolae Ceausescu's shoes.
While Jon Ronson attempts to locate the secret room, he is chased by men in dark glasses, unmasked as a Jew in the middle of a Jihad training camp, and witnesses CEOs and leading politicians undertake a bizarre pagan owl ritual in the forests of Northern California. He also learns some alarming things about the looking-glass world of them and us.
Are the extremists right? Or has he become one of Them? This is a fascinating investigation into extremists of every stripe.
