Belew's first book, "Bring the War Home: The White Power Movement and Paramilitary America" (Harvard University Press, 2018), established her as the foremost historian of the modern white power movement and – more broadly – as a major figure in recent American history. She appears regularly on television as a commentator and has published op-eds in The New York Times, the Washington Post and Dissent, among others. Belew is co-editor of the essay collection "A Field Guide to White Supremacy" (University of California Press, 2021). She is working on a new book "Home, at the End of the World" for Random House.
