Format: Hardcover
I am a native Mississippian who began working for the F.B.l. in 1968 at age 18 in the Jackson Field Office. I was there for the end of the F.B.I.'s successful fight to destroy the power of the Ku Klux Klan in Mississippi. Even after more than 25 years studying and working in law enforcement, I have never seen a more remarkable achievement. The shifting of public opinion & state law enforcement attitudes is a tribute to both the F.B.I. and the basic morality of the people of Mississippi. When Mr. Whitehead began researching this book, Mr. Hoover gave him access to the agents & files of the Jackson Field Office. I knew many of the agents referenced in the book as well as some important members of the Klan (did not know of their membership until after I was allowed to join the F.B.I.). This book is as much of the true story as will ever be told. It is also superbly written.

A very engrossing book that emphasized the difficulty of investigating cases of lynching's and other acts of despicable nature. A real eye-opener to race relations in the past, with a hint of the continuing harassment of African American's still today in America. The story made my heart ache at some of the cover-ups by the KKK and allegedly very upstanding people in the county in which this book takes place. Well worth the read.

Growing up in Mississippi during the time period covered by this book, I found it a fascinating commentary to those events I experienced as a 12 year old boy. If you're going to only read one book about the KKK in Mississippi during the 1960s, this is the one.
