Gathering storm : America's militia threat by Morris Dees( Book )

11 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 1,511 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Six months before the Oklahoma City bombing, Morris Dees warned the U.S. Attorney General that the fast-growing militia movement posed serious threats. He saw the possibility of imminent danger that few understood. Dees and his associates had tracked far-right paramilitary groups and their racist leaders since the early 1980s, sometimes using daring undercover operations. In retaliation, his law office had been burned and attempts made on his life. In this revealing account, Dees names names and places, tying together for the first time the events, the players, and the history that gave life to the militia armies now operating across the country. He explains how hard-core racists and neo-Nazi leaders used the deaths of Randy Weaver's wife and son at Ruby Ridge and the Branch Davidian tragedy at Waco to convince thousands that our government was preparing for a war against its own citizens
