What I’m Reading: The Second Coming of the KKK – 46 in a series – “…an aggressive, state-of-the-art sales approach to recruitment.”

September 30th, 2019

“IN MANY RESPECTS THE KLAN MIGHT APPEAR ANTI-MODERNIST, as in its romance about “old-time religion” and its campaign to “restore” “true Americanism.” Yet in its organizing, it was not only modern but innovative. What made the Ku Klux Klan so wildly successful in the early 1920s was an aggressive, state-of-the-art sales approach to recruitment.”

The Second Coming of the KKK: The Ku Klux Klan of the 1920s and the American Political Tradition by Linda Gordon
