“What sets this database apart are the extra features that facilitate comprehension and searching. Here users will find, among other topics, scholarly articles about the radical right in Britain and about John Sinclair and the White Panther Party in the United States. Highly recommended for academic libraries.”

“Political Extremism & Radicalism in the Twentieth Century is an impressive collection… Gale has done an impressive job of providing many helpful and interesting tools for use with the product. Having these primary source materials available to such a wide audience makes it possible for researchers to examine them independent of any suppositions or biases that have been placed on them by others, allowing for new context and understandings of these time periods and groups.”
