A rising scourge to England’s social peace and multiculturalism, the English Defence League (EDL) has violently protested against Islam since its inception. In the fantastically daring Angry White People, Hsiao-Hung Pai follows a group of individuals who got caught up in the wave of far-right street movements that began in 2009. Pai investigated the rise of the EDL and other extremist organizations, falling in with several of their members and observing their day-to-day lives.
Delving deep into five lives in this marginalized section of England’s white working class through research and interviews, Pai uncovers something surprising—their xenophobic ideologies are not an aberration in modern English society, but rather an ever-present facet that is continually reproduced, rejuvenated, and mainstreamed by the media and political powers.
