UNO Professor’s Book Honored as Outstanding Academic Title
Omaha - American Swastika, a book co-written by Pete Simi, an associate professor in the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s (UNO) School of Criminology and Criminal Justice, has been named the CHOICE magazine Outstanding Academic Title of the year for 2010. Simi’s co-author is Robert Futrell, a sociology professor at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
“I’m flattered by the honor,” Simi said. “The book’s subject is an important one that I hope more people read and learn about.”
More than 35,000 academic librarians, faculty, and key decision makers rely on the reviews in CHOICE magazine and Choice Reviews Online for collection development and scholarly research. The Association of College and Research Libraries publishes the magazine.
American Swastika, published earlier this year by Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, Inc., explains the difference between movements such as the KKK, the Aryan Nation, Skinheads and others. It also discusses ways White Supremacists cultivate, maintain and spread their beliefs, largely under the radar of most Americans.
The authors draw on more than a decade of research and interviews, from the infamous Hayden Lake Aryan compound in Northern Idaho, to private homes in Los Angeles, to hate music concerts around the country.
