    Early in 2016 a piece appeared in the Spectator by Rod Liddle titled What makes the white working class angry Twits like Hsiao Hung Pai.The piece was a review of Pai s new book, Angry White People Pai, a journalist who sometimes writes for the Guardian, had been in Luton and elsewhere talking to members of the anti Muslim English Defence League EDL , trying to find out what had driven them to towards this controversial group why, in fact, they were angry Her efforts did not impress Liddle, who d [...]

    The author came to England in 1991 as a young graduate from a middle class background in Taiwan to continue her education in England, and remained to build an independent life as a migrant in London She was attracted, among other things, by the opportunity to escape from social and political conformism But life for a migrant is never easy she left behind all the security of her middle class family and had to rebuild a life in London on her own resources She makes a few cutting asides about racia [...]

    This book came with the highest recommendation Rod Liddle hated it I know this because he ranted incoherently about it in the Spectator, as is his wont Since, to my knowledge, Rod Liddle has never been right about anything, and barring a Damascene conversion will never be right on anything, I thought the book must be good Besides, this is a desperately important topic and one of great personal interest to me For obvious reasons, I have spent a lot of the last few months wondering how it is that [...]

    Not a bad book, but could have done with some serious editing as it was highly repetitive Some factual inaccuracies and peculiar misspellings as well which bothered me Some of her figures early on don t add up and she ironically falls victim to the racialisation of Muslims by talking about them only as south Asians I also don t buy the economically disenfranchised white working class become racist through frustration argument I think that s a cop out My main concern though is that the most preva [...]

    Like most things, racism changes over time When my mother in law, as a young Jewish girl, was being chased by members of the British Union of Fascists through the East End of London, we knew who was fascist and racist and we knew that they hated Jews When I was growing there was a huge uprising of racism led by the National Front, at this time skinheads, fascism and racism became synonymous together with football hooliganism , their targets were migrants from Pakistan and Bangladesh and the Cari [...]

    This Author Wants Readers To Think That The Nationalist Movements Are Made Up Of Low IQ Knuckledragger TypesThe grotesque photograph on the front cover of this book alludes to the author s contempt the extreme image is deliberately being used to encourage a condemnation from those who might otherwise be sympathetic to the movements objectives.She is manipulatively trying to discredit legitimate British nationalism and she is over simplifying a complex issue.This publication is pushing a Leftist [...]

    Very good investigative journalism Looks at the forces driving the emergence of new far right groups in the UK However, it lacks a deeper analysis of the structural dynamics of contemporary capitalism, partially driving this re emergence.

    The topic intrigued me and if you like controversial subject matter this sounds like a page turner, but it lacks research and sadly needs a story Pai does mention a lot of groups and the leaders but save your time read the bad reviews and wait for a better book I even blame the book publisher and editor for its failure There were over 30 used books on sale on and it wasn t even 6 weeks after launch It s slow and hard to get past the first 30 pages I felt they tried everything they could to make [...]

    Rather disappointed by this Was expecting something than the stating of the obvious Includes many discussions with right wing people, but doesn t even begin to explain the whys, and is even rather meagre on the hows Pity, because the author s heart is, at least, in the right place, and she writes well

    It can feel a bit slow in the middle, but it s an interesting subject and the ending is very really made me think.
