Alexander offers an outstanding contribution to the pedagogy in American, African American, and Southern history and studies. The volumes of KKK testimony are massive, and the author has taken on a monumental task to cull through the materials from the hearings. The collection is well organized, thoughtfully considered, and carefully edited, and it will find a central place in the contemporary classroom.
Leslie Brown, Williams College

This book stands as a unique contribution in the highly acclaimed Bedford Series in History and Culture. It challenges readers to rethink the history of Reconstruction after the Civil War and encourages thoughtful historical analysis about a challenging and violent era, one that deserves more study and reflection.
Andrew Kersten, University of Wisconsin—Green Bay

Those who teach the history of the South will welcome this volume for its focus on the violent demise of one of the most radicalized eras in American history.  From the sources presented in this book, students will come to understand how white southern resistance in the 1870s set a precedent for "massive resistance" in the modern civil rights era.
