"Nelson details his investigation--alongside renewed FBI attention--into ... cold cases as he uncovers the names of the Klan's key members [in the 1960s], as well as systemized corruption and coordinated deception by those charged with protecting all citizens. [The book] recounts the little-known facts and haunting stories that came to light from Nelson's hundreds of interviews with both witnesses and suspects. His research points to the development of a particularly virulent local faction of the Klan who used terror and violence to stop integration and end the advancement of civil rights"--From publisher's website.
