Most widely held works by Morris Dees
Gathering storm : America's militia threat by Morris Dees( Book )

10 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 1,586 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gathering Storm goes behind the scenes, beyond the friendly-looking militia leaders seen on TV talk shows, to explore secret paramilitary cells training deep in mountainous back country. Similar fanatics, with close ties and fueled by the same antigovernment zeal, have lived in our midst for more than a decade. These "super patriots," Dees shows, see themselves in a life-and-death struggle to reclaim the country. These militias do not operate in a vacuum but are close cousins to the religious right and ultraconservative politicians. They are fueled by the ban on assault weapons, strident radio talk show hosts, and those who preach hatred of government. Dees suggests ways to combat the militias and offers ideas on how to recapture the political debate
