A journalist born and raised in Norway, schooled in the U.S., with writing in such publications as the New York Times, Rolling Stone, New Republic, and Al Jazeera America, Vegas Tenold has long been covering the most ideologically extreme of the white nationalist groups. His book, Everything You Love Will Burn: Inside the Rebirth of White Nationalism in America (Nation Books), is a sobering, open-eyed look at these groups’ existence, and their growing emergence.
"Vegas Tenold has gone far beyond the comfort zone of most reporters to document the rise of America's radical right in the Trump era. His bone-chilling account of the white nationalist movement―based on extensive interviews with its leaders and chief ideologues―shows in painstaking detail how ideas that were once off limits have seeped into mainstream politics."―Sasha Polakow-Suransky.
"A penetrating portrait of the men and women who are trying to instill fear and terror in our community. Vegas Tenold has done a great service by exposing their toxic ideologies in this must-read book."―Ibram X. Kendi.
