On the cover: Charlottesville, VA, Aug. 12, 2017. White nationalists,
neo-Nazis and members of the 'alt-right' exchange insults with counter-protesters as they attempt to guard the entrance to Emancipation Park during
the 'Unite the Right' rally. After clashes with anti-fascist protesters and police,
the rally was declared an unlawful gathering and people were forced out of
Emancipation Park, where a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee is
slated to be removed. Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images.
