We debuted For the Kingdom and the Power two days after its arrival from the printer at the Printers Row Lit Fest in Chicago, June 6 and 7. Author Dale Laackman and our staff hand-sold dozens of copies to history readers over the course of the weekend.
Congratulations, Dale! The book is here.
For the Kingdom and the Power: The Big Money Swindle That Spread Hate Across America went to the printer yesterday. Expect it back the final week of May and in stores shortly after that.
The running themes of For the Kingdom and the Power.
The nefarious triangle of Mary Elizabeth “Bessie” Tyler, Edward Young Clarke, and William Joseph Simmons that underlies the story of For the Kingdom and the Power.
For the Kingdom and the Power is a splendid book on the so-called “second era” Klan, the largest in the 150-year history of the organization. In a detailed account rich with fascinating characters, Dale Laackman shows how the group’s exponential growth was driven almost entirely by an unlikely pair of public relations experts who turned out to be consummate swindlers.
