Item Description...
Overview
In 1924, students of the University of Notre Dame and members of the Ku Klux Klan faced off in a violent confrontation in South Bend, Indiana. This shocking and true hidden chapter in Catholic and American history is recounted in Notre Dame vs. The Klan, the story of two uniquely American institutions that rose to power amidst rampant anti-Catholicism and collided during a riotous weekend. In defeating the Klan, Notre Dame helped Catholics overcome widespread prejudice and take their place as accepted members of mainstream America. Told from the perspectives of the then-president of Notre Dame, the former Grand Dragon of the KKK, and a Notre Dame student who participated in the riot, the book details the rise of Notre Dame-from its humble roots in a small village in France to its reputation as an academic leader and football power-and the parallel trajectory of the KKK in Indiana.This fascinating story, pieced together from firsthand accounts and newspaper reports, is an important addition to the rich legacy of the storied institution of Notre Dame and the cultural history of American Catholics.

Top Shelf Intellectual Property  Jan 16, 2008
Tucker has put together a solidly researched and masterfully written history of not just Notre Dame and the Klan, but the innermost thoughts and manipulations of those who wielded the power of the KKK in its heyday. One does not have to have any association with Notre Dame to enjoy this book. Superbly done
 
Easy read, great story  Jun 6, 2006
Todd Tucker exploits one of the least known storys of the University of Notre Dame in a great way. He doesn't keep it boring, which i have found most other history books to be. It is a very easy read, but not in a bad way at all. I really enjoyed how he also brought in the history of Notre Dame, which i don't think i really would have known otherwise. Also how he talked about the beloved football team. I couldn't asked for anything less.
 
Spirit and Truth Defeat Bigotry  Mar 10, 2006
The true story of how the teams, faculty and student body
were able to fend off this attempt by the Klu Klux Clan to
destroy the university. An exciting one sit reading.
 
A Legendary Event in the History of the Fighting Irish  Sep 11, 2005
I am a Notre Dame graduate(class of 1959)and had heard of this clash between the ND student body and KKK, but I knew only the barest details. Therefore, this book was most welcome. It not only covers the 1924 confrontation in almost minute-by-minute detail but serves as a fascinating informal history of both the KKK, especially its post-"Birth of a Nation" spread in the North, and of the University itself from its 1842 founding date. The book should therefore be fascinating to any ND alum, including those of the subway variety, and would probably be of interest to a general readership was well.
 
Who Knew?  May 6, 2005
Very interesting history of both Notre Dame and the Klan in Indiana, particularly relevant to anyone with an interest in either Notre Dane or the KKK. (We all might have guessed that a prominent member of Indiana society was a Klansman, but who knew that he kidnapped a girl and bit her to death?) Tucker's book is a little less sensational than that previous sentence implies, but this is a nonfiction book that reads with a lot of drama and excitement.
