Summary
"Present[s] a picture of Christian extremism. [The book] focuses on a group of dedicated religious zealots who co-opted major elements of the Ku Klux Klan and other white supremacist groups for a frightening agenda: an apocalyptic race war within the United States. This group has a long but hidden history, is outside the purview of public officials and has an agenda as heinous as anything Al Qaeda has to offer. These radical sects of Christianity have inspired some of the most grotesque acts of violence in American history: the 1963 Birmingham Church bombing that killed four young girls; the "Mississippi Burning" murders of three civil rights workers in 1964; the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1968, the Atlanta child murders in the late 1970s; and the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995. Expands upon the author's ground-breaking work on the Martin Luther King, Jr. murder, and the Birmingham bombing tragedy-- and uses extensive documentation and never-before-released interviews, as well as a re-examination of major events-- to expose the significant influence of the Christian Identity movement on white supremacist organizations." --
