Homegrown, Timothy McVeigh and the rise of right-wing extremism, Jeffrey Toobin - hardcover

Summary
New York Times bestselling author Jeffrey Toobin traces the dramatic history and profound legacy of Timothy McVeigh, who once declared, “I believe there is an army out there, ready to rise up, even though I never found it.” But that doesn<U+2019>t mean his army wasn<U+2019>t there. With news-breaking reportage, Toobin details how McVeigh<U+2019>s principles and tactics have flourished in the decades since his death in 2001, reaching an apotheosis on January 6 when hundreds of rioters stormed the Capitol. Homegrown reveals how the story of Timothy McVeigh and the Oklahoma City bombing is not only a powerful retelling of one of the great outrages of our time, but a warning for our future
