This is a collection of essays that discusses the prominence gained by the Ku Klux Klan in the 1920s. Rather than feeding the stereotype of Klan members being from the South, the essays focus on six cities west of the Mississippi that saw expanding Klan membership during the 1920s (El Paso, Denver, Salt Lake City, Anaheim, Eugene, and La Grande, OR).

Having lacked any real knowledge of the Klan prior to reading this book, I found it to be enlightening. Lay and his fellow contributors focused not only on the racial aspects of the Klan, but also the political aspects. I would recommend it to anyone interested in 20th century United States history.
