The clansman ; an historical romance of the Ku Klux Klan by Thomas Dixon ( Book )
54 editions published between 1904 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The novel 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. It was written as a message to Northerners to maintain racial segregation, as the work claimed that blacks when free would turn savage and violent, committing crimes such as murder, rape and robbery far out of proportion to their percentage of the population. The enemy in The Clansman is not the freed slaves, but the Republican led Reconstruction movement which the Ku Klux Klan is founded against
The leopard's spots: a romance of the white man's burden, 1865-1900 by Thomas Dixon ( Book )
74 editions published between 1902 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Written as a response to Harriet Beecher Stowe's novel, Uncle Tom's Cabin, this is the author's story of Reconstruction in post-Civil War South in which the Ku Klux Klan is considered heroic and blacks are depicted as savage beasts, a threat to white women and American civilization. The Leopard's Spots is the first novel in Dixon's "Klan trilogy" which became the source for W.D. Griffith's film 1915, Birth of a Nation

The sins of the father a romance of the South by Thomas Dixon ( )
25 editions published between 1912 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
" Today, Thomas Dixon is perhaps best known as the author of the best-selling early twentieth-century trilogy that included the novel The Clansman (1905), which provided the core narrative for D.W. Griffith's groundbreaking and still-controversial film The Birth of a Nation . It was The Sins of the Father , however, that Dixon regarded as the most aesthetically satisfying child of his Ku Klux Klan saga. In this novel he telescopes the trilogy's sprawling historical canvas into one tightly scripted narrative. A best-seller in 1912, the novel's themes of interracial sex and incest outraged many upon its publication. Nearly a century later, Dixon's work is undergoing a critical reevaluation. A new introduction by Steven Weisenburger lends a valuable historical and critical perspective to this important and divisive classic of American literature. Thomas Dixon (1864-1946) was born in Shelby, North Carolina. He is also the author of The Clansman and The Flaming Sword. Steven Weisenburger, Mossiker Chair in Humanities at Southern Methodist University, is the author of several books, including Modern Medea: A Family Story of Slavery and Child- murder from the Old South
The flaming sword by Thomas Dixon ( )
4 editions published between 1939 and 2005 in English and held by 993 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Thomas Dixon is perhaps best known as the author of the best-selling early twentieth-century Klan trilogy that included the novel The Clansman (1905), which provided the core narrative for D.W. Griffith's groundbreaking and still controversial film The Birth of a Nation (1915). In his twenty-eighth and last novel, The Flaming Sword (1939), Dixon takes to task his long-standing black critics, especially W.E.B. DuBois, by attacking what he considered to be a vast conspiracy by blacks and Communists to destroy America. A new introduction and detailed notes by John David Smith offer a valuable h

The birth of a nation by D. W Griffith ( Visual )
24 editions published between 1915 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The most popular silent film of all time, it was a landmark achievement in film history that combines brilliant battle scenes and tender romance with a vicious portrayal of African Americans. This Civil War epic focuses on the northern Stoneman family, and the southern Cameron family before, during, and after the Civil War. Life in the South is portrayed during Reconstruction as rife with conflict between the defeated southern whites and the emancipated, renegade Blacks, which is resolved through the inception of the Ku Klux Klan. It remains one of the most controversial films ever made. However flawed it now seems, it is undeniable that the film itself made history
