“God, Guns, and Sedition: Far-Right Terrorism in America” with Bruce Hoffman and Jacob Ware
The CSIS International Security Program welcomes Bruce Hoffman and Jacob Ware for a talk on God, Guns, and Sedition: Far-Right Terrorism in America. They will explore the rise of far-right terrorism in the U.S. and how to counter it, discussing violent extremists' use of communications technology, embrace of leaderless resistance, infiltration and recruitment of military and law enforcement, and relationships with mainstream political ideas.
This virtual conversation will be moderated by CSIS senior vice president and ISP director, Dr. Seth G. Jones. Hoffman and Ware’s book, God, Guns, and Sedition unpacks the history and modern contours of white supremacist and anti-government violence in the U.S. and beyond.
This event is made possible through general support to CSIS.
