Excellent Original Source Material

Sargent does an exceptional job of putting together original source documents form groups with such a wide range as The Communist Party of America to the United Klans of America to the Covenant, the Sword, and the Arm of the Lord (CSA)and many more groups that cover the ground in between. Any person intrigued by radical groups will find this compendium a useful jumping off point for further in-depth research. Sargent's editorial comments on each group are insightful and neutral. Readers may find it helpful to use this book in conjunction with a philosophically based book on radicalism or extremism such as Eric Hoffer's "The True Believer."
