Terrorists, subversive political groups and gangs with violent agendas have found an easy an convenient means to promulgate their messages of hate - cyberspace. Whilst debate about the use of the internet by extremist groups rages around governments and media alike, little has hitherto been presented as analysis of the websites themselves.

Timely and topical, Antonio Roversi presents an insightful look at the unregulated, anonymous, and easily accessible nature of the Internet and how it has been used to raise funds, recruit, train and promote acts of violence and disorder. This is a translation of a work originally published by Il Mulino in Italy.

'In a remarkable tour de force, Antonio Roversi advances socio-criminological discourse toward uncharted territories, by exploring the conjunction of ideologies of hatred with contemporary communication on “the Web”, ranging from such matters as “Ultra” football movements and neo-Nazi “Skinheads”, to an arresting account of the “Electronic Jihad” within contemporary Middle-Eastern radicalism.'
Dario Melossi, University of Bologna, Italy
