Reviews

"[Hatemonger] is the secret history of how White Nationalism got into the White House."--The Majority Report
A brilliant and necessary look into the making of the mastermind behind the worst of America's policies. Guerrero's deep dive into Stephen Miller was enlightening and terrifying all at once. Hatemonger is required reading to understand what we are truly up against in America.--Julissa Arce, bestselling author of My (Underground) American Dream and Someone Like Me
Superb, deeply revelatory.--Vanity Fair
Incisive and terrifying.--Jezebel
Jean Guerrero's meticulously-researched biography of Stephen Miller, is a horrifying page-turner. Understanding who Miller is, and what motivates him, is key to understanding the racial politics that threaten the lives and safety of racially minoritized people living in the United States today.--Myriam Gurba, Remezcla
In her new book, Hatemonger, journalist Jean Guerrero provides a full portrait of this Nosferatu of the West Wing....The title 'Hatemonger' might seem sensational or overdramatic, but it is clinically precise. Miller acquires, packages, commercializes, and touts hatred as surely as a fishmonger peddles haddock and cod. Jean Guerrero has the emails.--The Bulwark
"In Hatemonger, Jean Guerrero doesn't just catalogue Stephen Miller's scorched-earth campaign to relentlessly vilify and abuse migrants from the nucleus of American politics--she also shines a light on the casual radicalization of a life-long troll and his gleeful ascendance to the halls of power, revealing the insidious inner workings of modern-day white supremacy. A vital book for understanding the still-unfolding nightmare of nationalism and racism in the 21st century."--Francisco Cantu, author of The Line Becomes a River
"An unsparing portrait of the young architect of Trumpian nationalism...carefully documented and persuasive. A readable study in the banality of evil, even if it comes clothed in bespoke suits."--Kirkus Reviews
"An urgent story. Jean Guerrero writes with piercing clarity about one of the most powerful and elusive figures in America today."--Wil S. Hylton, author of Vanished
"A fascinating analysis of Miller and his frightening effects on immigration policy, which is enriched by the author's vast experience reporting on the U.S.-Mexico border."--Library Journal
"Investigative reporter Jean Guerrero deftly uncovers how Stephen Miller--as a privileged California teenager desperate for attention and power--immersed himself in right-wing dark arts, attracting a motley crew of white supremacists and extremists eager to cultivate the precocious boy's interests. Under their tutelage, Miller developed a talent for twisting progressive rhetoric to his will--a skill the Trump administration has used to shape its most sadistic policies. Hatemonger is a must-read for those who want to understand how small minds steeped in extremist methods have amassed great power in the 21st century. A superbly reported and haunting American tragedy."--Rachel Slade, author of the national bestseller Into the Raging Sea
Smartly reported and urgent.--Jeff Sharlet, Bookforum
