Description - The Party of Fear by David Harry Bennett
From the anti-Catholic riots that convulsed Philadelphia in 1845 to the 1995 bombing of the Federal Building in Oklahoma City, this incisive and superbly documented book is the first work to reveal the common values and anxieties that link groups as seemingly diverse as the Know Nothings, the Ku Klux Klan, the Christian Coalition, and the Michigan Militia. Will ship in August.
