From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sara Rose Diamond (born 1958) is an American sociologist and attorney, and the author of four books that "study and expose the agenda and tactics of the American political right wing." (Thomson, Contemporary Authors Online).



After graduating from the University of California at Irvine, Diamond earned a Ph.D. from U.C. Berkeley in sociology. Having conducted research since the early 1980s, her Ph.D. dissertation, entitled "Right-Wing Movements in the United States, 1945-1992", served as the basis for her second book, Roads to Dominion. The Bancroft Library at U.C. Berkeley maintains the Sara Diamond Collection on the U.S. Right. For several years Diamond wrote a regular column for Z Magazine. Sara then switched careers and attended law school. She has taught journalism and sociology at several California universities. Diamond currently practices law in California.
