LitHub's Most Anticipated Books of 2020
"Superbly written...Her focus on the lives of three very different women makes her book as readable as a good novel; skillfully combined with history and analysis, her subjects' stories provide a better picture of the forces driving white backlash than several of the best sellers that attempted to do so in the wake of Trump's election."--Susan Nieman, New York Times Book Review
"Darby's key intervention is to show just how far these women go in comparison to their male peers."--Josephine Livingstone, The New Repubic
"Seyward Darby's eye-opening and unforgettable book sheds light on the often-hidden movers of America's growing white nationalist movement: women. By telling the riveting story of the lives of three women advancing their agendas of bigotry, Darby exposes the ways in which white nationalism hinges on the contributions of women."--Ibram X. Kendi, National Book Award-winning and #1 New York Times bestselling author of How to Be an Anti-Racist and Stamped from the Beginning
"[Sisters in Hate] shows just how "permeable" the line between mainstream America and white supremacy is"--Sam Gillette, People
"Darby charts the lives of three women who were or are active in the White nationalist movement. In doing so, she adds dimension to readers' understanding of the complex role that gender plays in bolstering the country's racial regime."--CNN
"In delving into the stories of each woman, one of whom has defected from the movement, Darby offers an unnerving portrait of extremism."--Annabelle Gutterman, TIME
"It's a hell of a story...Darby sketches her subjects finely, with a level of detail that never feels forced."--Danielle Kurtzleben, NPR
"Darby writes with a clear sense of purpose and makes a concerted effort to understand why women would "fight against their own interests." The result is a disturbing and informative must-read." --Publishers Weekly

"A fascinating yet highly disturbing deep dive into the toxic world of female white supremacists."--EJ Dickson, Rolling Stone
"Darby...offers rigorous research about the rise of white nationalism, how it retains its relevance, and the various reasons white women, including those profiled in the book, are drawn to it."--Evette Dionne, Bitch
""This book is eye-opening and incredibly timely."--Booklist
"This book is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand the origins and depths of modern white supremacy. With dogged reporting and exacting prose, Seyward Darby not only paints a gripping portrait of the women enmeshed in hate movements, she reveals how seeds of racism take hold in minds and communities. Sisters in Hate is terrible and mesmerizing, a book perfectly pitched for this moment."--Evan Ratliff, author of The Mastermind and co-host of the Longform Podcast
"'Women are the hate movement's dulcet voices and its standard bearers, ' Seyward Darby observes in Sisters in Hate--a timely, deeply reported, and chilling exploration of the role that women play in promoting white nationalism. By exploring the lives of three different women who have embraced white supremacy, Darby holds a mirror up to American society, illuminating the forces at work within our culture that continue, to this day, to lead to radicalization and violence. Sisters in Hate is a warning cry for the future while also suggesting the possibility of a another, better path forward."--Pamela Colloff, senior reporter at ProPublica and staff writer at The New York Times Magazine
"A gripping, terrifying look at the white women who are pumping racist hate into the heart of their communities. Darby's clear-eyed and nuanced insights are essential for ending the racial hate movement in America."--Kathleen M. Blee, author of Women of the Klan
"No, I don't want to hang out in the minds of white nationalists, either, but Darby does that on the reader's behalf, promising a book that probes the architecture of "the war embedded in the landscape" of the US. American identity, and the oft-overlooked role of women therein."--Lauren Markham, Lit Hub
"A brave, detailed and insightful portrait of three women who came to advocate the alt-Right's bigotry, but a portrait that is not simplistic. Especially valuable is its examination of the women's complex and contradictory ideas about gender and the appropriate place for women."--Linda Gordon, author of The Second Coming of the KKK
"Engaging, horrifying, and informative--Darby offers an important, fresh angle on the problems tearing our country apart."--Kirkus Review
"Seyward Darby's Sisters In Hate is a masterfully reported and incisive look at the virulence of American extremism, as seen through the eyes of three white women who trafficked in monstrous prejudice. Now, more than ever, it's important to comprehend, and not look away, from the unspeakable damage caused by the far-right, and Darby's book helps us understand the critical role women play in spreading such dangerous ideas."--Sarah Weinman, author of The Real Lolita
"There is no more urgent story than the resurgence of violent white supremacist groups in America. Sisters in Hate delivers an invaluable examination of the ideologies at this movement's core by tracing the stories of three women who found themselves seduced by lies of hatred. Darby provides the most in-depth reporting I've ever encountered on the role of women in this emboldened movement, while unflinchingly dissecting the misogyny implanted at its ideological core. Those who've spent recent years wondering "how" will find the unsettling answers within this book's pages."--Wesley Lowery, author of They Can't Kill Us All
"Trump 2016. Charlottesville 2017. How to understand the unavoidable fact of masses of white women at the core of white nationalism, a movement marked by misogyny? With enormous care, Seyward Darby discovers the hungers within white women's attraction to hateful conspiracy theories of anti-Semitism and racism. Hers is a riveting account that I could not put down."--Nell Irvin Painter, author of the bestseller The History of White People
