5.0 out of 5 stars A FANTASTIC EXPOSe! Great read.... 2 Dec 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book is a true story based upon Stetson Kennedy's inflirtration into the Ku Klux Klan. This book shows how the Klan used it political and economic powers to persuade the American Government in their favor. This book will give any reader a better idea of the corruption that runs through out our government. The author Stetson Kennedy is a true hero. Stetson Kennedy fought for liberty, equality and justice. It's unfortunate that most people will never hear of the great things that Mr. Kennedy did to help achieve the ideals that we should always be striving for.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Easy Entertaining Read about Amerikkkan Terrorism 3 Sep 2002
By GHT - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Kennedy first released this book in 1954, the 1990 edition includes some practical ideas to fight Klan and other neo-fascist organizations in an afterword.
This book is a very easy read, conversational in tone, and compelling in content. Mr. Kennedy outlines his infiltration into the headquarters chapter of the KKK in Atlanta and the Columbia Brownshirt organization there, and his undercover hob-knobbing with violent racists and hatemongers, and the colorful illiterates and semi-literates that made up the membership of the Klan and their fellow travellers. He put his life in danger many times confronting the evil, brutal and stupid nature of southern racists.
Another compelling part of the story is the complicity of the police, FBI, the Democratic machine of the Talmadge family, (who rode the upsurge in Klan violence to national political prominence), and the Republican businessmen of the south who paid Klansmen to help bust union drives by busting heads and nightriding.
He also spends alot of time detailing Klan rituals and meetings, and the seemingly neverending lists of Kleagles, Kludds, etc. that made up the hoodoo hierarchy of the Klan organization. It seems like never had so much empty ritual been used in attempt to 'sanctify' such mindless violence.
A good book that gives a good cross-section of what Klan terror and rightist violence was all about in the 1940s and 1950s.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kennedy is a true American hero 13 Aug 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
A friend originally recommended this book to me, I was initially put off by the subject matter. The Klan is not really something I wanted to know about, also the book was written long before I was born, so I wasn't overly excited about it. However, I am so glad I did read it, because not only is Kennedy a hero (for infiltrating the Klan at it's most powerful), he is also a fantastic writer. This book reads like a thriller, but it's all true. I think this book would appeal to many people, from a wide cross section of society, even if, like me, they don't think so at first. I have bought copies for friends and family, and have received positive feedback from them. This book warrants its five star rating.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kennedy is my hero! 6 Mar 2006
By R. Avila - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is an awesome account of Kennedy's time in the Klu Klux Klan. I enjoyed reading every page of this book. Kennedy has got to be one of the bravest men ever. At times this book had me really nervous wondering wat was gonna happen to him. I recommend this book to anyone that wants to learn more about the KKK or anyone that just enjoys a good read.
