The Results of John C. Lester's and Daniel Love Wilson's Research into the KKK are hereby reedited and republished with additional Documents ( Regarding Albert Pike ) and contained within this Book. Part of this Research was conducted based on Witness Accounts of previous Members of the KKK.
This Book also is one of the essential Key References on the Famous ŤAlbert Pike - KKK - Controversyť
I would recommend this Book for those who are conducting Research into either Freemasonry ( Scottish Rite), Albert Pike, and the KKK and/or Racism in General.
