White Hoods is the first book about the Hooded Empire in Canada. Award'winning journalist and author Julian Sher traces the Canadian Ku Klux Klan from its birth in the early 1920s, through its powerful influence within Saskatchewan's Conservative party in the 1920s and 1930s, to its renaissance under James McQuirter in the 1980s. McQuirter led the Klan to new heights in the 1980s, until he was jailed for conspiracy to commit murder and his role in a bungled coup in the Caribbean. Sher uses personal investigations and candid interviews, as well as unpublished studies and the Klan's own publications to shed light on the KKK's links with the police, with neo?Nazi movements throughout the world, and with its American counterpart.
