YALSA Nonfiction Finalist, 2011A thoroughly-documented, chilling history of one of the world’s most recognizable extremist groups, this is the true story of terrorism in America.“Boys, let us get up a club.” With these chilling words, six restless young men raided the linens at a friend’s mansion, pulled pillowcases over their heads, hopped on horses, and cavorted through the streets of Pulaski, Tennessee. They called their new club the Ku Klux Klan, and it quickly grew into the self-proclaimed Invisible Empire, with secret dens spreading across the South.Award-winning author Susan Campbell Bartoletti weaves together vivid personal accounts from oral histories, congressional documents, and diaries in this enlightening, surprising, and disquieting story, which has received a slew of starred reviews from Kirkus, Publisher’s Weekly, Booklist, and other esteemed publications. Her extensive research places the length of the Klan’s history into a larger context that sheds new light on the roots of hate groups.When you purchase They Called Themselves the KKK, you’ll get exclusive bonus audio from a conversation with the author and Audie Award-winning narrator Dion Graham. 1.

In vivid, comprehensive, and often grim detail, Invisible Empire charts 130 years of Ku Klux Klan activity in Florida, one of the Klan's most violent and enduring realms. Beginning with the chaotic days of Reconstruction, when Klansmen killed more than 150 victims in a single country, this important history describes the organization's influence on Florida politics and its links to modern law enforcement. From the KKK's heyday during the 1920s and 1930s, its alignment in the 1970s and 1980s with a growing crop of neo-Nazis and other cultists, and its emergence in the 1990s on the fringe of the 'right-to-life' movement, Florida Klansmen have waged a constant war against progressive society. Their crimes range from petty vandalism to assassination and destruction of entire communities. Florida governors have courted Klan ballots, and high-ranking lawmen collaborated with the Klan in campaigns of arson and murder. In addition to recounting tales of violence, Newton addresses the critical question of how the hooded night riders continue to survive -- a bitter, marginalized extremist movement that is still marching in what is arguably the Deep South's most progressive and ethnically diverse state. He also discusses how to curb guerrilla warfare before the Klan and its allies inaugurate a new century of terror.
Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.
'Until now, the best compilation on the activities of the Ku Klux Klan has been William H. Fisher's The Invisible Empire.... Both the Fisher and Davis/Sims-Wood bibliographies cite monographs, pamphlets, documents, dissertaions, and archival materials; but in contrast to Fisher, Davis and Sims-Wood offer 10,000 entries, nearly 75 percent of which are newspaper articles. These include coverage of foreign countries as well as 48 states. Two appendixes provide lists of Klan publications and archival and manuscript collections. ... [This] bibliography is the most comprehensive resource currently available on the Klan. Every library supporting programs in American history, political science, sociology, and Afro-American studies must buy it.'-Choice
