7. April 2009
Established in 1866, the Ku Klux Klan still remains one of America’s most secretive organizations. New York photojournalist Anthony Karen first transcended that secrecy several years ago when he got the opportunity to photograph a KKK cross-lighting ceremony. Since then, Karen has been documenting Klan organizations throughout the country. In The Invisible Empire: Ku Klux Klan, those photographs are compiled to form an absorbing document of one of the most notorious groups in history.

Taken with unrestricted access, Karen’s images bring us deep inside America’s most private white nationalist organizations. Beginning with a brief introduction into the history of the Klan, the book provides detailed visual accounts of modern-day Klan life, including candid shots of rallies, individual portraits of Klansmen and women, as well as a look at the naturalization process for new members. Presented in intimate profiles are: a functioning Klan ministry, a group that has merged National Socialism with Klan ideologies, and a 58-year-old seamstress who makes custom Klan robes, among others. Accompanied by quotations from the late Dale Fox, Imperial Wizard of The Brotherhood of the Klans, The Invisible Empire: Ku Klux Klan offers an unprecedented glimpse into the shadowy society and its mysterious inner workings.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Insider's Look at Klan Groups in America! 28. Juni 2011
Von Michael OConnor - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
In its hey-day, the KKK could put 40,000 Klansmen in the streets of Washington, D.C. The modern-day Klan is but a shadow of its former self, being made up of various splinter groups. Photojournalist Anthony Karen was able to gain the trust of officials of the Imperial Klans of America and the Knights Party in order to document the activities of those groups. The result is this 112-page photo-essay, a 2009 release from PowerHouse Books that is, by turns, fascinating, repellent, scary and sad.

Karen's book is divided into sections on Gatherings; Protests and Demonstrations; a Cross Lighting Ceremony; Portraits of various Klan members male and female; the Knights Party/Thomas Robb Ministry; a Klan Wedding; the Imperial Klans of America; etc. The black-and-white images capture various activities - initiations, picnics, cross-burnings, Klan members having target practice, marches and protests, Klan members/skinheads acting up, etc.

While some might view the photographs in THE INVISIBLE EMPIRE, KU KLUX KLAN as frightening, they actually cut the other way. They depict what pollsters would term 'marginalized individuals.' Judging by Karen's stark images, something drained many of them of the milk of human kindness year's ago. In terms of being a force in America, Karen's images show that they're lucky to get a half-dozen members when they stage a demonstration. A cross-burning - or "cross-lighting" as Klan members would have it - draw a couple dozen. These people talk about "dispelling darkness and ignorance" but, for Pete's sake, they can't even spell the word "immigration" (i.e "Join the Fight to Stop Illegal Imagration)."

Since Americans are guaranteed the right to express themselves as they wish, the men and women found in THE INVISIBLE EMPIRE can do what they will. What is terribly saddening about Karen's book are the photographs of their children decked out in a Klan outfit and proudly posing with Pappa, giving a Heil Hitler salute and so on. The saddest image in the book is a shot of a Klan member holding his sleeping son. The pride and love are evident in the man's face. How terrible that such sweet, innocent minds will be twisted into those of hate-mongering nihilists

In short, THE INVISIBLE EMPIRE casts an unflinching - and ultimately unflattering - insider's portrait of those who follow the Klan. It should be required reading for anyone interested in - or worried about - the fringe groups that exist in American society. Recommended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Stunning. 11. Juli 2011

Wonderful book. I had seen some of the images in a magazine a year or two ago, but when you see all the images together it is a quite chilling experience. It shows how mundane evil is.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Perfect 25. März 2011
Von Jon S. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I received this volume today, March 25th. It is largely a photographic study. My specialty as a "Military Writer" is political and racial violence. This is the best photo-journalist book on the topic I have ever seen. If pictures are worth a thouand words, the author , Mr. Karen, has captured seething hatred and a scary world with incredible finesse. Excellent!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Well done. 14. Oktober 2013
Von Blah Blah - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
I appreciate the neutrality. The easy road not taken was to denigrate and castigate (denigrators got to denigrate, castigators got to castigate), but <i>The Invisible Empire: Ku Klux Klan </i>takes the more difficult approach by offering its subjects as they present themselves to the camera (within the confines of a captioned photography book). The seamstress is particularly interesting and got mature treatment.

The photography to my untrained eye seemed well composed to draw out individuals and the mundanity of their activity. My sense from the book is that the contemporaneous Klan are marginalized, harmless loons of a kind that exist (must exist) as spandrels in free civil society. The book seems to differ, offering them as the historical artifacts of the previous Klan "ages", like the SCA or Westboro Baptist Church.

My great disappointment, though, is that I bought the book solely for one photo <i>and it wasn't in the book</i>. The shot of the Klansman shooting a cockroach, indoors, while his wife and daughter cowered is filled with amazing detail but indecipherable on the public web shots- certificates on the wall, toys cluttered on the ground, beer (imports?) bottles, and a noose tattoo. I'd trade the whole book for that one shot, it's one the coolest photos I've ever seen, but somehow the editors omitted it. I dropped 2 stars for that.
