An urgent examination into the revived Klan of the 1920s becomes “required reading” for our time (New York Times Book Review). Extraordinary national acclaim accompanied the publication of award-winning historian Linda Gordon’s disturbing and markedly timely history of the reassembled Ku Klux Klan of the 1920s. Dramatically challenging our preconceptions of the hooded Klansmen responsible for establishing a Jim Crow racial hierarchy in the 1870s South, this “second Klan” spread in states principally above the Mason-Dixon line by courting xenophobic fears surrounding the flood of immigrant “hordes” landing on American shores. “Part cautionary tale, part expose” (Washington Post), The Second Coming of the KKK “illuminates the surprising scope of the movement” (The New Yorker); the Klan attracted four-to-six-million members through secret rituals, manufactured news stories, and mass “Klonvocations” prior to its collapse in 1926?but not before its potent ideology of intolerance became part and parcel of the American tradition. A “must-read” (Salon) for anyone looking to understand the current moment, The Second Coming of the KKK offers “chilling comparisons to the present day” (New York Review of Books). 8 pages of illustrations

The Second Coming takes a fresh look at the Gospel of Matthew through the unconditioned eyes of a truth-seeker. The book reinterprets the Gospel of Matthew from a non-dualistic perspective and brings out spiritual insights totally unexpected. The book also brings to the forefront the forgotten character of Joseph as the 'tekton' of the Gospel. The distinctive feature of the book is that it redefines abstruse or undefined biblical terms such as, the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit, God, heaven, hell, Serpent, Satan, sin, etc., in a new light that makes the interpretation internally consistent, and also consistent with the external reality. According to the book, the message of the Gospel is straightforward: "The human body is the Savior. Therefore, turn to the body." The book goes beneath the literal content of the Gospel of Matthew to discover its soul.
