The year was 1865. With the close of the Civil War, there began for the South, an era of even greater turmoil. In The Clansman, his controversial 1905 novel, later the basis of the motion picture The Birth of a Nation, Thomas Dixon, describes the social, political, and economic disintegration that plagued the South during Reconstruction, depicting the rise of the Ku Klux Klan and the reactions of two families to racial conflict. This study in social history was alternatively praised and damned by contemporary critics. As historian Thomas D. Clark notes in his introduction, the novel "opened wider a vein of racial hatred which was to poison further an age already in social and political upheaval. Dixon had in fact given voice in his novel to one of the most powerful latent forces in the social and political mind of the South." For modern readers, The Clansman probes the roots of the racial violence that still haunts our society.… (més)

    La cabana de l'oncle Tom de Harriet Beecher Stowe (Usuari anònim)
    Usuari anònim: Dixon himself called The Clansman a sequel to Uncle Tom. In many ways its antithesis. Both controversial. Both worth examining for historical context more so than literary value.

A journey into the racist underbelly of the beast... Curious if you have strong gag reflex. ( )

Recommend - not for literary excellence, but for seeing racism from a historical perspective. I think we forget just how truly vile (in this book, black) racism is, and tend to only see it as a dislike... "he's a racist" seems to mean nowadays that "he doesn't like XXX" and, while we think negatively of racism, the deeply reprehensible actions and opinions that go along with racism are overlooked. This book is good in that it shows the language of racism and it's difficult to read such language. Whereas nowadays the n-word or a monkey-caricature is all that is needed to incite digust, in this book the n-word is a common word and the real vileness that is racism comes out in flaming form. Definitely worth the read. ( )

271. The Clansman An Historical Romance of the Ku Klux Klan, by Thomas Dixon (read 25 Jul 1946) I started to read this book on July 22, 1946, and on that day said: "I despise the book and its thesis." On July 23 I said: "Reading in that maddening Clansman. Author deserved shooting." ( )

Notorious book glorifying the KKK, basis of Griffith's film Birth of a Nation; this copy belonged to my grandfather who was the son of a Confederate veteran in NC. ( )
