4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 824 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 sins of the father a romance of the South by Thomas Dixon ( )
4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 766 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

The birth of a nation by D. W Griffith ( Visual )
27 editions published between 1915 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 152 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
