*Note* - This book of non-fiction, by historian, Linda Gordon, covers the era of reign of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK, for short) from the early-to-mid 1920's. This was when they were 6 million strong.

With their power and influence stretching clear across the USA (from New Jersey to Oregon) - The KKK regularly burned their crosses and paraded en masse to openly voice their outright intolerance towards Catholics, Jews, and blacks.

"The Second Coming of the KKK" is a very well-researched book that speaks candidly about yet another chapter in the toxic legacy of American History (that goes hand-in-hand with the Salem Witch Hunts and the Vietnam War).
